PAULA'S HOUSE
Adult Mental Health Community Recovery Service

Supported Living Service For Adults Who No Longer Need Acute In-Patient Treatment Care But Require Re-Establishing Themselves In The Community

18 plus, Male and Female, Smethwick

Paula’s House is a CQC Regulated nurse lead service which provides care and support for adults with mental health needs who have left inpatient treatment or whose mental health has deteriorated and unable to live independently. 

Our evidence based framework is a planned pathway to increase independence, manage residents’ own mental, physical health and well being, recovery, continuing health and social care in the community, support and progression to sustain their own tenancies. Our homes are newly  decorated, well equipped and the resources are continually reviewed and expanded to maintain a high standard. Each persons’ room is thoughtfully decorated and furnished and this includes a wardrobe, chest of drawers, medi safe, bed and chair. There are two communal bathrooms and a fully equipped communal kitchen; each cupboard is fitted with a lock for personal safe-keeping of goods. There is a dining table providing a comfortable environment for that important interaction around mealtimes. There is a main lounge for relaxing and socialising and a garden area which is in full view from the separate staff office.  The layout of the home is to provide a homely environment in order to challenge institutionalisation whilst promoting supportive structures and routines, personal responsibility and a high quality of life. 

The least restrictive option to treatment

More than medical stabilisation for the earliest stages of recovery
