Who is the service for
Jasmines ward is a 16 bed acute admission unit for older adults within South West London and St George’s Mental Health Trust. We offer care and treatment for male and female patients over the age of 65 with functional or organic mental illness. Within this setting a thorough assessment of a patient’s physical, social care and mental health needs is completed with a treatment plan devised by a multidisciplinary team. Our close links with Community Services allow continuity of care and enable us to provide a whole system approach to care.
The purpose of hospital admission is to provide care and treatment where it is not safe or appropriate to provide this in the home or other residential setting. Admission to hospital only occurs where community alternatives have actively been considered and excluded.
