Cygnet Thors Park

Brightlingsea Road, Thorrington, Essex, CO7 8JJ

Cygnet Thors Park is a 14 bed specialist high dependency complex care service providing care and treatment for men with learning disabilities and complex needs. The team can also support people who have additional mental and physical health needs, and those who have been detained under the Mental Health Act. We accept emergency referrals and the team are experienced in managing them quickly and efficiently to ensure transition for service users is as smooth as possible.

Cygnet Thors Park is set in extensive grounds accessed via a private lane in the heart of the Essex countryside. The service has its own care pathway on-site from more support, through to more independent living. This comprises of three elements:

  1. An eight bed service providing assessment and intervention for men with complex needs. Generous living areas enable everyone the opportunity to spend time alone or with others.
  2. Four self-contained, bespoke apartments for individuals who require more intensive support, each with 24 hour care and support within a structured and therapeutic environment. Each apartment has its own en-suite bedroom, living and kitchen facilities and access to private outdoor space.
  3. Finally there are two bespoke single person apartments that provide a more independent living environment. These apartments each have their own front door, lounge, personalised bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, as well as a kitchen to help promote independent living skills. These apartments are situated within the extensive grounds and have access to a private patio area and secure garden.

The service has a dedicated activity coordinator who supports service users to have individual activity plans, which are created based on each person’s likes and hobbies. Their goal is to enable people to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their individual needs.
