TypeOlder People’s Inpatient Acute
We offer a range of services to support older people needing inpatient setting for a period of assessment and treatment with mental health problems and dementia. We provide medical treatment, therapy, nursing, and holistic treatment to make sure all our patients’ needs are met.
We work to minimise the problems caused by impairment and disability, helping older people and allowing them to lead a fulfilling life, involving service users and their carers and families in decisions about their care, treatment, and therapy.
Our inpatient services are provided in two purpose-built facilities in the county, one located in Kettering and the other located in Northampton. Both facilities provide a safe and caring environment for older people needing acute inpatient treatment.
Who is this service for? People over the age of 65 years.
