Pines

203 Park Hall Road, Mansfield Woodhouse, Nottinghamshire, NG19 8QX

Pines is a 7 bed specialist residential service for adults with autism and who may present with behaviours that challenge. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and effective care environment for those in our care, promoting independence and community integration.

Based just a 15 minute drive from the bustling town of Mansfield, the individuals we support have access to a large amount of community facilities and activities, including horse riding, swimming and visiting the library.

Person-centred planning is at the heart of everything we do, based on the specific needs of the individuals in our care. We understand the importance of consistency and continuity of care.

As part of our care pathway, our service enables residents to build upon earlier learnt skills to achieve further independence, self-advocacy and confidence leading to better
quality of life. Residents can gain skills through extended learning on a number of accredited platforms.

Interventions are matched according to individual needs and our life skills development programmes are overseen by our activity coordinators. The integrated MDT consists of occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, psychology and psychiatry. This supports the development of daily living skills and reduction in maladaptive behaviours.

Our staff use non-aversive positive approaches and are trained in specialised intervention techniques and sensory integration strategies. A combination of person-centred planning, measurement of progress and a full multidisciplinary approach ensures the best outcomes for each individual.
