Alice’s* Journey

 

Small new danshell 4 Web Size

Alice* is a young lady with a mild learning disability and a personality disorder. Having previously been placed at Wallace Hospital, Alice* successfully moved on into her own tenancy.

Recently, Alice* experienced a behavioural crisis, which had the potential to cause a breakdown in her tenancy. Trying to avoid this, her social worker contacted our team at Alice’s* request. Together, we arranged for Alice* to be readmitted to re-establish her previously set behavioural goals.

A short term assessment was agreed, with discharge planning commencing from day one. The hospital team worked hard with Alice* to agree and achieve her goals. The team also worked collaboratively with the referring authority, maintaining regular communication throughout.

During Alice’s* stay at Wallace Hospital, she was encouraged to maintain her links with friends and family through phone calls and supervised visits.

After 14 weeks, Alice* was able to leave Wallace Hospital. She successfully returned to her own tenancy and is continuing to thrive living back in the community.
