Functional Mental Health Care

Functional Mental Health Care provides care and services for people with mental disorders other than dementia and includes severe mental illness such as schizophrenia and bipolar mood disorder. Symptoms of these disorders frequently persist into old age or, less frequently, begin in old age, and they are more likely to experience various difficulties including cognitive impairment, poor physical health, psychiatric comorbidity and social exclusion. The aim is to provide as normal a life as possible promoting independence and autonomy through appropriate support.

Complex Dementia and Mental Disorder

Complex Dementia & Mental Disorder care is for people who have dementia and/ or mental disorders that result in complex behavioural issues. Here, residents receive high levels of psychological and nursing assistance and support as well as help in daily living activities. We give support and supervision to prevent or reduce challenging behaviours, as far as possible, and we try to understand the causes or triggers in the context of life history, personality, known habits and lifestyle, emotional health and medical conditions.
