Cygnet Lodge Woking to open new pre-discharge service

Cygnet Lodge Woking are to extend their care pathway by opening a pre-discharge service in a new annexe called Milligan House. Milligan House will contain six pre-discharge beds with an additional two self-contained flatlets.

Cygnet Lodge Woking is a locked rehabilitation service for men. The addition of Milligan House will allow the Lodge to provide a three-tier care pathway for service users as they reach a level of increased stability.

Milligan House will support service users who may require further support before moving into the community, giving them an opportunity to build their individual skills while still having the full support of the Lodge’s multi-disciplinary team. The service may be particularly successful for people who have experienced failed placements in the past as Milligan House will offer an opportunity for slower-stream rehabilitation.

Service users at Milligan House will also be able to take advantage of the close links Cygnet Lodge Woking enjoys with Guildford College, Woking College and organisations and businesses throughout the local area. These links help to support educational and vocational opportunities for service users.

The new service is expected to open at the end of November 2017. For more information about Milligan House please contact Seema Chaudry, Partnership Development Manager on 07854 089740 or by emailing seemachaudry@cygnethealth.co.uk.
