We are very sorry to report that in the light of Department of Health & Social Care guidelines on social distancing in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mildmay's Day Therapy service has had to be suspended until further notice.
Day Therapy Service
A structured pathway of rehabilitation-focused activities enables participants to fulfil and maintain their maximum potential within the community. We provide individuals with community-based rehabilitation, developing life skills for day-to-day living.
Mildmay’s innovative Day Therapy service develops goal orientated plans which seek to maximise independence, promote skills acquisition and build confidence.
The programme of activities aims to strengthen existing abilities and promotes maintenance of physical, psychological, cognitive and emotional well-being. This can lead to improved ability to use and be part of community services and reduction in incidences of hospitalisation due to factors including but not limited to, poor adherence to medication, reduction in mental well-being, or cognitive challenges.
For clients/patients currently in other hospitals, at home or in residential or nursing homes, please contact our Admissions Manager: telephone 020 7613 6300 Ext. 6287, or email our Referral Form to email@example.com.
If you wish to include confidential / client identifiable information please communicate by email.

Day Therapy Lead
A person's needs, impairments, and abilities will determine whether their goals are rehabilitation or maintenance focused
The referral goals, and those of the person, will guide both the frequency and length of attendance
Pathway one: Rehabilitation and Transitional Pathway
A 12-week rolling programme of rehabilitation
Designed to continue improvements in function and mobility. By focusing on health, well-being and what each person can do, not what they cannot, we support people to live their lives as fully as possible
Our programme includes group and one-to-one sessions with specific goals and aims
Provides a transitional pathway from inpatient to community-based living
This programme is reviewed and evaluated at the end of each 12-week block with clients either being discharged, repeating the programme or the programme changing to explore other areas of need.
Pathway two: Long-term Support, Maintenance and Admission Avoidance Pathway
Offers a safe and secure environment with activities to maintain existing abilities and promote physical and cognitive stimulation where possible
Includes group and 1:1 sessions
Designed to offer regular intervention, observation and assessment to potentially reduce the likelihood of acute centre admissions that may be experienced by those with complex needs
This programme is also designed to maintain individuals who have reached their maximum rehabilitation potential, and where ‘removing’ support might result in deterioration of cognitive, physical function or psychological well-being
Mildmay’s Day Therapy programme of groups, activities and one-to-one sessions is dynamic and evolving
Examples of some of the activities which currently form the 12-week Rehabilitation and Transitional Pathway Day Service programmes:
Independent and directed exercise in the physiotherapy gym
Kitchen Skills Group
Brain Training – Luminosity
Digital inclusion – computer skills training
Healthy Living Group
Expert Patient group
All the groups and activities have specialist areas and skills that they work to promote
