The service is a modern purpose built facility that has been designed specifically to provide a clinically led evidence based neuropsychiatric pathway for those individuals presenting with behaviours that challenge. Our focus is to create a therapeutic rich environment which engages our service users and offers them the opportunity to minimise their challenging behaviour and maximise their independence.

We are able to accept men with complex physical health needs and have en-suite bedrooms located on the ground floor for men with mobility impairments.

We provide a resource intensive in-house Neuropsychiatry inter-disciplinary team dedicated to the 22 service users at Cygnet Pindar House. Our person centred approach puts the individual at the centre of their care and discharge planning. The service offers a wide range of activities and facilities to promote independent function. Positive behaviour goals are focused on discharge planning to support service users to return to community living – either with support or independently.
