Autism Hospital Crisis Support & Short Stay Service

Through its hospital service, Brookdale also offers a short stay/respite service for those with Autism, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health issues and challenging needs.  Individuals may be subject to the requirements of the Mental Health Act or due to risks posed to themselves or others, be subject to Depravation of Liberty Safeguards.
This service is particularly useful for people who have been subject to a crisis residential or supported living placement breakdown and need a safe place to reside short stay whilst alternative arrangements are being made.
