SPECIAL NEEDS CARE
Special needs care for children and adults
Children and adults with severe and profound mental disability need a high level of special care to cope with mild to profound intellectual disabilities, serious psychiatric problems, developmental delays, occasional panic attacks, and food allergies.
Many of our residents are wheelchair bound or have limited mobility and so require assistance in most areas of their functioning. Durban and Coastal Mental Health staff are trained to provide ongoing one-to-one care in bathing, feeding, medical management, mental and physical stimulation and assistance with mobility. An on-site nursing sister ensures optimal care as a preventative measure to avoid ongoing hospitalisation.
Mental, sensory and physical stimulation is a key component of care for children and adults with special needs. Our structured stimulation programmes enhance our residents’ holistic development.
