Elliot's* Story


Croc LFFF 052 Web Size

Elliott*, a gentleman with autism, had a long history of displaying complex behaviours that were considered very challenging. He had been detained on a section of the Mental Health Act for nearly ten years.

Upon admission to Thornfield Grange, new activities were introduced to Elliott* that followed a structured routine. Elliott* then began accessing local facilities with the support of the staff. Within a short period of time there was a significant decrease in his complex behaviours and an increase in activity involvement.

Elliott* responded well to the structure and routine that Thornfield Grange could offer him. Within a year he was ready to move further through his care pathway. After consultation with the multidisciplinary team, a suitable placement was identified for Elliott* and a transition process began. Elliott’s* transfer to the new service was a smooth transition and we hear that Elliott* is continuing to thrive in his new placement.
