Bloomfield Hospital has a range of in-patient mental health services designed to provide for the mental health of adults and older persons. We are strategically placed to provide a range of treatment and care settings for the severity of an individual’s condition, including their levels of independence. Our programmes will address any behaviours of concern that can be associated with an individual's needs. Neuropsychological interventions aim to optimise residual cognitive and psychological strengths using a neurobehavioural approach.
The range of mental health needs may include individuals with serious and enduring mental health conditions and neuropsychiatric requirements arising from conditions such as Huntington's Disease, Dementia, inclusive of early onset, parkinsons disease and motor neuron disease.
We offer individualised assessment and treatments for both assessment and continuing care needs including palliative care for persons with mental health needs.
We accept referrals nationally and from Northern Ireland.

Our Care Pathway
Upon admission, Bloomfield’s care pathway begins with an initial assessment period where we will formulate a comprehensive individualised team report summarising treatment recommendations. The person-centered care pathway includes an agreed treatment and care plan which takes into account the views of the patient, family and other caregivers. We can provide palliative care for those in need who wish to remain at Bloomfield. Where possible end-of-life wishes are ascertained and respected. At Bloomfield, our aim is to optimise the quality of life of individuals, through in-depth interdisciplinary assessment and intervention at all stages of diagnosis.
We provide a holistic, interdisciplinary service designed for the highly specialised needs of individuals. We actively provide assessment and long-term intervention to individuals presenting with needs across the spectrum of cognitive, psychiatric, behavioural and motor difficulties in order to optimise the functioning of individuals. Our individualised care pathways are developed in accordance with the specific needs and strengths of the individual, as identified by our team assessments.
At Bloomfield, we understand the many different individual and family-based perspectives of mental health needs. We provide individuals and family members with therapeutic supports to facilitate their journey together.
