Based in the village of Whalley in the Ribble Valley, we have been operating as a Foundation Trust since 2009. In this period we have continued the modernization of our specialist services through the development of individual care pathways for service users in modern and twenty-first century built accommodation.
We are fully supportive of the principle of least restrictive practice and the discharge of service users into appropriate community locations as quickly as possible, in accordance with policy direction from NHS England. Family visitors are encouraged and we work closely with them, our commissioners and others including the Ministry of Justice to ensure the proper care pathway from secure services into community settings.
This website shows just some of what we do at Calderstones. Please use it to help find out how we support adults who need forensic learning disability services or how you can access us if you are a carer, a family member, a commissioner, from a local authority or an academic.
A Care Pathway is a structured approach to care delivery that clearly describes the journey an individual is likely to take when moving through the care system.
Its purpose is to ensure that each individual receives the most appropriate care and treatment within clearly agreed timeframes and in the least restrictive environments.
At Calderstones, we ensure that service users are fully engaged in every aspect of their care (this is called a shared pathway)
