Meeko House (1)

 

Meeko House is a specialist Ofsted Registered residential home for young people from the ages of 12-18 years with ongoing complex mental health needs and associated behaviours. The framework underpinning the clinical model is refered to as STEP incorporating a stabilization, strengthening and moving on phase.

 

Meeko House can be sourced as a 'step up' service from the community or a 'step down' service from inpatient settings. We have an on site education provision, Home Tree School that is registered separately to Meeko House with Ofsted.

 

Our aim is to support young people through an in-depth and integrated approach to health, care and education, in a safe, nurturing, sensory supportive, totally inclusive and enabling environment which empowers us to measure positive personal progression. As part of the wider CAMHs Cambian services we are using evidence based outcomes measures to record and review progress.

 

At Meeko House, the multidisciplinary team will get to know each young person and their expectations, completing baseline assessments in order to assess needs, develop, formulate and deliver an individualised treatment plan.

 

Every young person will have access to a psychology, psychiatry and occupational therapy team whom will support young people within their recovery journey, independence skill set and building upon their resilience. Every young person will have personalised plans that cover their placement, individual needs and education. The plans are developed with the young person, parents, carers and placing authorities and reviewed regularly-these include impact assessments, risk assessments, placement plans, health, therapy and education plans. Reviews will reflect the child’s pathway at Meeko House in keeping with the STEP framework.

 

Our home has two wings; each with en-suite bedrooms and a dining room with cooking facilities, where young people can make their own meals or cook for others, if they wish to do so. independence skills are encouraged within the home to promote daily living skills.

 

There is a communal lounge area where the children can relax and watch television and read books, sensory room and a large garden.  

 

Young people will be educated at our on-site school, Home Tree School. This provides a personalised education approach at key stages 3, 4 and 5, and we support every young person with 25 hours of weekly education.
