The Greenvale Specialist Care Unit is a facility in Streatham and is commissioned to provide treatment for older people with predominantly complex organic mental health problems.
The service provides 24-hour care for older adults (65 and older) presenting with a complex mental health conditions in a community-based setting.
This service is specifically for service users who could not be safely treated in the community due to the high risk of harm that they pose to themselves or others because of their continued behaviours but who do not require continued admission in an acute psychiatric ward.
