Glenside provides for the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of adults with neurological injury and conditions, including people with challenging behaviours and / or long-term conditions.
We offer a complete pathway of inpatient care with a choice of settings, from acute care and intensive rehabilitation within the Hospital, to slow stream rehabilitation in a range of home environments, and within the framework of the two Neuro-Rehabilitation and Neuro-Behavioural pathways.
The hospital service offers 42 single ensuite bedrooms, together with various communal areas including lounges, service user practice kitchen, coffee shop and communal gardens. Furthermore, there is a hydrotherapy pool and on site physio gym, available as part of an agreed rehabilitation package.
The Neuro Rehabilitation Unit (NRU)
NRU is a 28‐bed service within the Hospital, comprised of three wards Avon, Bourne and Wylye, and led by an experienced senior clinical nurse and Consultants in Rehabilitation Medicine and Rheumatology. It can admit patients with complex nursing needs, provide physical and cognitive rehabilitation, tracheostomy management and weaning, and nutritional management.
The Neuro Behavioural Unit (NBU)
NBU is managed as a single 14‐bed service, comprised of two wards Ebble and Nadder, and led by an experienced senior clinical nurse and a Consultant in Neuropsychiatry. The NBU focuses on neuro behavioural interventions which aim to control, reduce and ultimately eliminate challenging behaviour and is able to admit patients detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (as amended 2007).
The Glenside Salisbury site also offers a choice of seven different care home options, within a range of settings for both the neuro rehabilitation and the neuro behavioural pathway, as well as 10 simulated supported living bungalows.
Patients can move along or even between pathways at various stages of their rehabilitation journey and their progress is constantly monitored by our multi-disciplinary team to ensure they are in the best environment to suit their needs. Patient admission and discharge is also possible at any stage of the journey.
Individual care plans are agreed, following discussion with the individual and / or their family to ensure care is tailored to the service user’s needs. Treatment may include physiotherapy, speech and language support, occupational therapy, psychiatry and a range of vocational leisure activities all aimed at building independence to support an individual’s rehabilitation. Care and treatment is planned and delivered in a way as to ensure people’s welfare and safety.
Set in a rural environment, Glenside Salisbury also offers additional facilities for rehabilitation and wider social interaction, including communal gardens, coffee shop and activities centre.
