Healthcare in Secure Environments
Outstanding holistic healthcare
Mountain Healthcare partners with NHS England to provide a holistic child-centred service at Aldine House, a secure children’s home for 11 to 18-year-olds on welfare and justice placements.
We empower the children in our care by providing them with techniques to look after their own physical, mental and emotional wellbeing during and after they leave the secure home.Day in the life at a Secure Children’s Home
A whole system approach
Our service utilises the independently approved NHSE Integrated Care (SECURE STAIRS) Framework.
This is a whole system approach to childcare, emphasising that every interaction matters and care plans are individually tailored to the children’s unique long-term needs.
We work hard to establish a trauma-informed and nurturing environment that protects the children’s rights and makes them feel able to speak freely about a wide range of issues related to their healthcare and well-being.
The preferences and opinions of the children are always listened to and considered respectfully, and greatly influence the services we provide.
