Our Step Down Service Rosemary House

At Goddess Living, we believe that women with mental health issues leaving hospital require a seamless transition and a specialist therapeutic, safe environment for them to recover at their own pace.

Goddess Living Creative Care services

We accept mental health customers  who are preparing for discharge from an inpatient unit, as a transitional service to support them as they prepare to return to living in the community (step down). The service provides 4 beds in an open, co-living home-like environment, with 24 hour staffing, including clinical support.

We are proud to have created an environment which is as family-like as possible, which promotes rehabilitation, building relationships and community integration. Each individual will have their personal key worker to support them with their individual needs. 

Our Benefits

Our service is designed for women to recover and stay well and live as independently as possible within our homes to ensure independence can be managed in the long term. We do this by following our person centred model of GODDESS Framework.

The purpose of Goddess Living  is to focus on the needs of each individual. We work in partnership with Social Care agencies ensuring that the well-being of each woman is paramount. Primarily, Goddess Living  offers personal care and support to women with complex mental health needs in an effort to redress the imbalance and discrimination that some may have faced by being a part of the “dependent” community, and at times added to this, racism and negative stereotyping of sexuality, which is unfortunately a reality for many women today. We deliver truly person-centred support solutions that provide independence and happiness.
