Arbour Lodge Case Study: George
George is a 66 year old gentleman with a diagnosis of treatment resistant Paranoid Schizophrenia who was detained under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act. Prior to becoming unwell, George was in the Navy from the age of 16 leaving when he was 23 to look after his mother. George also had quite an extensive forensic history. George had a long history of admission to NHS psychiatric services and had resided at his previous NHS placement for eleven years. Following admission to Arbour Lodge staff worked with George to maximise his independence and work on areas such as community safety and medication compliance. George then stepped down from Arbour Lodge following a fourteen month admission to a community placement and his section of the Mental Health Act was rescinded on discharge.
