COMMUNITY OLD AGE PSYCHIATRY SERVICE
States of Jersey, Health and Social Services

This is a comprehensive specialist service offered to people with mental health needs arising in later life, and to people previously receiving service from adult general psychiatry, whom because of their age have specific needs better met by us.

PHILOSOPHY

We believe that it is our role to provide mental health care within the community setting.

Our aim is to maintain people in their own homes for as long as they wish within the limits of their disabilities.

Our interventions are, as far as possible, needs-based, and we strive to view the individual presenting with mental health problems in holistic terms. We recognise and take into account when assessing and planning care, one or more of the following influencing factors: social, spiritual, physical, psychological and environmental wellbeing

We believe that we must offer education to any individual suffering from mental health problems, his/her family, friends and carers, and to allied professionals. We acknowledge value of working with families and friends who are supporting and/or providing care for our patients. We seek always to involve them in care planning.

We feel that we must constantly review and evaluate our care, thereby allowing ourselves the flexibility to grow and develop our skills. This process does not en, nor is it static, it is continually progressive.

 

SERVICE PROFILE

People newly referred are offered prompt initial assessment, usually at home, but can be in residential/nursing home, or in day care setting if more appropriate.

Following initial meeting we can offer a range of further involvement either within patient's homes or in a variety of hospital settings, detailed later.

Community Team Comprises four C.P.N.s, one N.A..and full - time social worker. We directly employ Home Care Support workers, who provide a range of services to patients at home including domestic and personal care. The community team also liaises closely with many residential/nursing homes and day care settings. We regard this as a particularly important way of supporting patients who may have received care in hospital and been placed by us. We are currently supporting 210 patients in this way.

People requiring more intensive input can receive assessment, treatment and rehabilitation in the newly commissioned Noirmont Day Unit at the General Hospital where a team of qualified nurses and therapists can be involved with up to 15 patients per day.

Inpatient Services These are based at St. Saviours, Beech Ward (24 beds organic) and Cedar Ward (28 beds functional), proportional beds on each ward reserved for respite care. Although we try to return patients to their home environment, the nature of the illness means that most people admitted acutely to Beech Ward will subsequently be placed in residential care.

Ongoing Continual Care from Psychiatric nursing staff with a high level of medical input is provided in two areas in Rosewood House, St. Saviours, where up to 56 patients are accommodated.

Ongoing Day Care is provided directly by us at Colomberie Day Centre in town where 35 clients can be accommodated four days a week. In the West of the island a day care setting is provided at Communicare one day a week for 20 clients.

Liaison Mechanisms The service has close links with a wide range of' services, agencies and teams in the Health division, Social work department and non statuary sectors. Key links include the Family Nursing Services (District Nurses and Health Visitors, G.P.s, Consultant in Psychiatry of Old Age, residential and nursing homes, community services in St Helier and the Alzheimer's Disease Society.
