Programmes

Tāwhirimātea - Inpatient Unit

Tāwhirimātea is a specialised inpatient unit that focuses on recovery and extended rehabilitation for up to 29 people who need a higher level of support within a closed environment. Each person admitted to an inpatient unit has a key worker (usually a nurse) and an associate key worker assigned to them. The key worker is responsible for coordinating the person’s care with the care team. They are usually also assessed by the medical staff on the day of admission, and later, as the need is identified, by other members of the multidisciplinary team. Usually, at least 2 meetings are held with the family of people admitted to the inpatient unit; the first within the first fortnight for a progress report and the final meeting to clarify discharge planning.
