Providing Residential care to young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties, aged 10-18 of either gender.
Rowan House is a converted Victorian residence, well presented and decorated to a high standard. All bedrooms enjoy en-suite facilities and we encourage young people to personalise them.The home is located within a mile of Derby City there is good access to public transport, shops and recreational leisure facilities.
Rowan House is able to accommodate up to four young people whose behaviour may be at crisis point, requiring intervention and facilitating short term emergency placements.
A clear admission process ensures that this is well managed with minimum disruption to those young people currently in placement.
Our dedicated staff team are experienced in the implementation of behaviour management programmes.A consistent approach applied by all ensures that we are able to intervene successfully,moderate challenging behaviour and improve upon the expected outcome for the individual. We recognise the value of building relationships with young people that are based on mutual trust as well as firm boundaries.
Although the main focus of the work we undertake is to stabilise behaviours, ultimately we hope that our young people are able to integrate into society with the skills necessary to enable them to manage their lives more effectively with optimum results.
We are therefore proactive in preparing young people for their future. This includes improving upon educational achievements, supporting
and promoting aspirations as well as through implementation of life skill/ independence programmes.
Psychotherapy is available to all young people.
During the assessment period appropriate therapies are identified and will be provided by qualified professionals. Any areas that are being addressed will be incorporated into the care plan alongside the behaviour management plans.
