At HC-One we provide mental health care to individuals of all ages with mental health care needs.
HC-One believes in mental health, better mental wellbeing and better services for everyone regardless of a person’s age, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, disability, marital or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity or gender reassignment status (Equality Act, 2010).
Our experienced Home Managers and care staff follow nationally recognised guidelines for delivering the highest standard of care and support to any person with mental health care needs.
In line with the government’s initiative 'No health without mental health' (2011) agenda which aims to improve the mental health and well-being of the nation and to improve outcomes for people with mental health problems through high quality services, HC-One has begun a journey towards better services for people with mental health care needs.
The six principles of 'No health without mental health' have been welcomed by charities and professional bodies as well as UK governments, and are influential in driving the policy and practices of HC-One.
Staff at HC-One are provided with on-going opportunities for learning and development to ensure that the care they give is not only person centred and the kindest possible, but is also delivered from a sound, professional knowledge base.
HC-One homes which provide mental health care share the six objectives specified in 'No health without mental health' in day to day living:
- More people will have good mental health
- More people with mental health problems will recover
- More people with mental health problems will have good physical health
- More people will have a positive experience of care and support
- Fewer people will suffer avoidable harm
- Fewer people will experience stigma and discrimination
Mental Health care within HC-One is holistic and centred around the whole person. A person focused/relationship approach to Mental Health and Dementia includes listening to and working with Residents, their families and friends, GPs and Community Nurses and multi-disciplinary teams to provide a written plan of care and 24-hour specialist care in a warm and welcoming environment.
