Child & Adolescent Services
Child & Adolescent Services:
All of Nua Healthcare's children's services facilities have been registered for inspection against the National Standards for Children's Residential Centres. The standards allow the inspectors to form judgements about the quality of services provided in each of these centres. Nua Healthcare provides professional residential and respite care to children and young people aged between 12 and 18 who present with highly complex and challenging needs in terms of their emotional, psychological and development well-being.
These include children with Learning Disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Emotional and Behavioural issues.
Our programmes are directed towards positive futures for the young people we care for. We encompass a holistic approach working with the family where possible, and try to integrate the young person into the local community as a means of promoting independence and social skills.
Our guiding principle has been to provide care and education as an integrated support system within a framework of a small 'family' type home. Our homes reflect that of a family home where children and young people feel safe, relaxed and cared for within a non-institutionalised setting.
Our homes offer:
- Individualised care and education packages
- Short, medium or long-term placements
- Emergency and planned admissions
- Assessment services from our own Clinical Team
- High Support and Challenging Behaviour services
The children and young people placed in our care benefit from a secure, friendly and supportive environment and a child-centred approach.
