Our progression model of care offers transitional /long term residential care living in a well-equipped residential setting.
Supporting people through post-acute rehabilitation, our goal is to promote and maintain optimum independence and choice through a personalized support plan. The personalized support plan or GAS (goal attainment scaling) is both written and reviewed in consultation with the individual to help maintain their optimum goals through the management of their specific needs.
With a focus on Cognitive impairment, we have individual support guidelines to cover functions such as attention, memory, information processing and executive skills. We also work with SASNOS, a tool used to establish areas requiring more support such as relationships, social skills and behaviour.
Rosglen Neurological Centre offers 6 spacious en-suite bedrooms. Each room has been designed to be as neutral as possible with the intention of encouraging the individuals we support to personalise their own space. There are also two communal lounge areas, a dining room and outside a pleasant garden area.
