About iMeUs

 

 

 

 

Why ‘iMeUs’?

We've called our company iMeUs because we want our staff and patients to promote a positive philosophical and person centred ethos.

i for the person I am now
Me is for the person I want to be
Us, together we will help you achieve your goals and aspirations

Our Mission

To promote recovery through safe, supportive and secure environments.

Our Vision

To influence and improve the quality of private secure healthcare provision.

We believe that recovery is best achieved within an environment where a person feels safe and supported to achieve their personal goals and where opportunity to engage in meaningful activity is promoted. Furthermore we believe that a person’s motivation and ability to develop coping skills and take responsibility for themselves, is best encouraged within an environment that promotes measured autonomy and self direction.

Integral to our vision is to maintain a therapeutic community offering members increased autonomy, responsibility and social learning opportunities.

Our Values

Pendarren Court provides a safe, supportive and secure environment for the assessment and treatment of adults with mental disorder. The multi disciplinary team ensures the personal and psychological safety of the person, whilst monitoring their mental health and all aspects of their care.

Our ethos encourages wellbeing, access and inclusion for all, promoting a sense of community, autonomy, self responsibility and enhanced role development.

Our principles ensure that the fundamental basic rights of each individual to privacy, dignity, choice and respect are met. The therapeutic environment endeavours to empower patients and staff to manage any potential challenging behaviour in a positive and supportive way.

Drawing from the facets of the CHIME framework our philosophy encourages positive risk taking within the boundaries of appropriate relational, procedural and environmental security. As such we foster a continual learning culture where patients can develop goals and work toward their aspirations whilst ensuring the safety of both the individual and the public.

Pendarren Court is committed to providing the highest quality individual care and treatment. Whether care is governed by the Care Programme Approach (England) or the Mental Health Measure (Wales 2010), patients will be encouraged to develop and reflect upon their personal goals but also to acknowledge and engage with their prescribed treatment plans.
