Specialist Learning Disability Locked Rehabilitation Hospital Care for adults
Every person with a learning disability is a unique individual and Lighthouse services are set up to respond to individual needs in a meaningful, person-centred manner.
This process begins with a comprehensive needs-led assessment prior to admission to a Lighthouse hospital care setting. All assessments involve the individual, their family/carers, current care provider and commissioner to ensure that the needs of the individual with learning disabilities is met.
