“ Staff are around 24 hours a day . Anything you need to know or want , just ask the staff . They are always here .” Micheal , resident
Aspinden Care Home is a CQC registered specialist residential service supporting those individuals that are living with the effects of long-term alcohol misuse and / or addiction , are resistant to change , and exhibit behaviours that challenge other services .
We have a team of personal health and wellbeing practitioners , recovery coordinators , in-house nurses , and senior management . The service provides accommodation and care with fluid and nutrition management through our own commercial kitchen .
Our work is person-centred to support individuals who have chosen to continue to drink alcohol by helping them live and thrive within a harm minimisation model , using a managed alcohol programme approach .
The service is based in Southwark , it consists of a purpose-built 25 bed , mixed-gender facility providing 24-hour care with regular nursing and GP input to support residents ’ physical and mental health needs .
The new With You research report “ A system designed for women ?” explores the type of support available to women who use drugs , their experiences of treatment and ultimately , how services can be improved to support these women . Download the report at : wearewithyou . org . uk / womens-research
