Each person’s service is designed around their specific needs through our comprehensive referral and assessment process so that the support is right from day one. Thereafter, support packages can be adjusted in light of individual progress made. Alexandra Park has an excellent track record in reducing the levels of staffing required by individuals over time and also in supporting individuals who are leaving hospital treatment and assessment settings.
