The Star Centre

The Star Centre provides therapeutic, leisure, social and relaxation activities for all the patients at Milton Park Therapeutic Campus. 
Activities are based around patients needs and interests as identified in their Spectrum Star and the Patient Feedback sessions.  

Some of the great therapeutic sessions running at the Star Centre currently are:
  • Elearning courses

Activities at the Star Centre are based on a 10 week timetable.  The activities are based on the needs and interests of the current patients and incorporate key religious and community events.
Each activity is designed to be fun and engaging for the patients but is built on objectives of skill development and achieving therapeutic goals and outcomes.
For example: during the kitchen skills sessions, patients are developing and enhancing the following skills:
  • Conversation skills
  • Time planning
  • Budgeting
  • Food hygiene
  • Cooking skills
  • Cleaning skills
  • Shopping
We listen to the person’s needs, so when you come here we try to understand what things you really enjoy doing, we listen to the things you have some difficulties with and we put a plan around you to support you the best.  Through the Spectrum Star, 1:1 input, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, we try our best to bring the person along the care pathway to give them a more fulfilling life.
