What We Do
It can be hard to find the right setting for those living with challenging behaviours and even harder to find a provider that takes time to understand why the challenging behaviours occur in the first place.
Our staff are trained to observe potential triggers, create clear channels of communication and promote consistency that develops positive outcomes and minimises the occurrence of challenging behaviours.
We work with the people we support and their close network to establish behaviour patterns, remove barriers that restrict choice and equip people with the skills to reduce or self-manage their own behaviours.
Mulberry House staff are committed to delivering our Positive Behavioural Support Strategy and are trained in accordance with the underlying principles:
- Seeks to understand the reasons for behaviour so that unmet needs can be met
- Considers the person as a whole, their life history, physical health and emotional needs
- It’s proactive and preventative, focusing on the teaching of new skills to replace behaviours that challenge
- Combines perspectives from different professionals.
We base our approach around the individual, and while historical assessments can provide insightful backgrounds, they are not the sole basis of our support plans.
