Our Care Centres

Mallard House Neurological Care Centre

Milton Keynes has three units spread over two buildings, with a total of 78 beds.. Mallard House is comprised of two units and there is a separate site which is called Bluebirds. The overall remit of Milton Keynes is to provide specialist neurological care to those residents who cannot be supported in more traditional nursing homes due to the level of challenging behaviour and complexity of their neurological conditions which require a multi-disciplinary team to assess and consult swiftly.  Neuropsychiatry and Neuropsychology input is essential to monitor and adjust treatment plans in a coordinated and responsive way due to the variability and unpredictability of residents’ presentation.  

 

Oakley Unit

29 beds 

Oakley supports adults with degenerative neurological conditions in mid-late stage, including end of life care.  Residents will present with increased challenging behaviour (verbal and physical aggression, non-concordance with care approaches/medication), complex conditions with mixed health conditions (renal issues, diabetes, COPD etc.).  Moderate to severe cognitive impairments leading to all risks and needs to be anticipated and managed by staff. Residents on Oakley will likely lack capacity for making decisions in most or all domains of their life. Neuropsychiatry and Neuropsychology input is essential to monitor and adjust treatment plans in a coordinated and responsive way, due to the variability and unpredictability of residents’ presentation.  

Residents presenting conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Alzheimer’s disease

Fronto-temporal dementia/Picks disease

Lewy Body dementia

Vascular dementia (which is more stable with stepwise changes in ability only if further vascular events occur.

Parkinson’s dementia

Acquired brain injury conditions from disease/damage leading to dementia such as Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (over use of neuroleptic medication given for long-term mental health problems), Syphilis, Korsakoffs disease (brain injury due to long term alcohol abuse).

Huntington’s disease.

Traumatic and acquired brain injury where maximal rehabilitation outcome has been achieved but where needs remain high.

 

Brunel Unit

24 beds

Brunel supports adults with degenerative neurological conditions, early to mid-stage. Residents may have early onset conditions affecting adults in their 30’s-50’s, but older adults also reside on Brunel. Challenging behaviour occurs (verbal and physical aggression, non-concordance with care approaches/medication). There is significant variability in the presentation of residents and this leads to the need to manage unpredictability on a daily basis. Residents have complex neurological conditions with mixed health conditions (renal issues, diabetes, COPD etc). Brain injury rehabilitation is a focus, with two independent living flats to aid transition back to the community. Residents will have mild to moderate cognitive impairments leading to lower awareness of risks and care needs. Staff will require daily review of insight and awareness of residents to anticipate the level of support in any given area, but a percentage of residents will have higher levels of independence and functional ability. Residents on Brunel will have mixed capacity for making decisions in some domains of their life.

Residents presenting conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Parkinson’s disease/dementia

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • Fronto-temporal dementia/Picks disease

  • Lewy Body dementia

  • Vascular dementia (which is more stable with stepwise changes in ability only if further vascular events occur.

  • Acquired brain injury conditions from disease/damage leading to dementia such as Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (over use of neuroleptic medication given for long-term mental health problems), Syphilis, Korsakoffs disease (brain injury due to long term alcohol abuse), Huntington’s disease

  • Traumatic and acquired brain injury where maximal rehabilitation outcome has been achieved but where needs remain high.
