Following the successful completion of the 6-month Lomakatsi CIP pilot at Hertfordshire in the end of July, Lomakatsi now has two follow-up types of services: transitional and in the community setting.
Currently, our facilitators work on a one-to-one basis with patients from Dove Ward after their discharge. The aim of the Transitional service is to make the shift from ward environment to the community setting easier and more gradual.
Since the beginning of August, Lomakatsi is also working in community setting environment at two care homes at Hertfordshire. This community-based project has a duration of 4 months and as well as creative rehabilitation for the care home residents, Lomakatsi will provide workshops and session for the staff.
Evaluation of effectiveness will be carried out upon completion.
