Bostall House is an Independent Hospital for Men Living with a Learning Disability
Based in Abbey Wood, London, Bostall House provides assessment and intervention for up to six men living with a learning disability and associated complex needs. The service can also support those who have mental health needs and complex needs and behaviours.
Bostall House is a spacious detached property, surrounded by beautiful parks and gardens. Service users have a choice of lounges and communal areas to relax in, as well as the benefit of a private garden to the rear of the house.
When people come to Bostall House, we find out how they would like to personalise their room and we support them to make it their own. We also like to find out what they like to do and what interests them. People are supported to plan menus, shop and prepare food to increase their daily living skills in readiness for moving on.
Bostall House is located in Abbey Wood, in the Royal Borough of Greenwich and is easily accessible from many local areas. There are local bus routes and Abbey Wood station is a ten minute walk away, with central London only 30 minutes away by train. Bostall House is ideally located near several notable places of interest, including Danson Park, and the Royal Museums Greenwich.
There is a large and varied choice of local community activities, which include bowling, the local gym, cafes and shops. Service users are also supported to access education at local colleges and have paid or voluntary work placements to increase their independence.
Our goal is to enable people to structure their time; build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, selfcare, work and leisure as appropriate to their individual needs.
People come to Bostall House from a home environment, supported living or residential service due to an illness or a crisis in their life. They may also come following a stay at an NHS or other specialist service including a secure service.
Within Bostall House we follow the five key principles that form our model of care, Personal PATHS.
1. Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)
2. Appreciative Inquiry Methodology
3. Therapeutic Outcomes
4. Healthy Lifestyles
5. Safe Services
We believe that we must be fully accountable to the people we support, their families and to those who commission services on their behalf. Personal PATHS model of care is our unique way of supporting this.
