Referrals come from the local authority. Lyndale is able to provide support to
service users who are receiving 117 Aftercare, on Section 17 leave, a supervised
discharge, Guardianship order or Community Treatment Orders.
Lyndale cannot support and accommodate persons who require nursing care
that cannot be managed by the community district nurse service.
Before service users decide to move in to Lyndale, an assessment will be
carried out by the service user and the registered manager, or manager from
Lyndale and any other person the service user would like present. This
assessment will form the basis of the service user plan that will be devised and
formulated with the service user together with their keyworker from Lyndale
and will be amended and updated to reflect the changes in the service user’s
needs. The needs of the service user are assessed using our Assessment Form.
This assessment is carried out by the Registered Manager or the Manager of
Lyndale, the service user and sometimes with the referring Care Manager.
