Milestones is a 10 bedded, holistic Mental Health Hospital for women detained under the aegis of the Mental Health Act. The hospital has continually broken new ground in caring for women aged 17 to 65 providing holistic and healthy-living support.
We provide individualised treatment and care programmes to women with complex challenging disorders who have done less well in main stream psychiatric settings.
Our deeply caring, familial environment pre-empts and prevents challenging behaviour rather than merely responding to it with seclusion and lock and key. This approach can save money in the long term.
Care at Milestones is tailor-made to meet each persons individual needs whether psychological, physical, spiritual, social and educational. We believe that by treating the whole self, the service user is empowered to help themselves to realise their full potential.
We genuinely believe environment plays an important role in recovery which is why we are based in rural Norfolk. The high staff ratio means we can make good use of these picturesque, natural surroundings and fresh air to promote a sense of wellbeing.
Service users at Milestones are detained securely, yet we balance this with the need to maintain their self-worth and sense of belonging. Security is discreet so that individuals feel comfortable, trusted and at home.
We genuinely care and want to help. Milestones is a familial and therapeutic environment that integrates traditional medical treatment and psychological therapies with individualised wellbeing, healthy living and occupational therapies. All care packages are developed in consultation with the service user to ensure their individual needs are respected and valued.
Milestones is a small hospital with no additional satellite units, enabling us to provided a truly bespoke service, rather than a one-size fits all approach – offering packages to suit every persons needs.
