“We approached BREVIN when a close family member who was in a psychiatric hospital asked us to find him a service that could continue his treatment home. With everybody realising he remained unwell, we were concerned he would leave hospital, stop his medication and become very ill again. The BREVIN team provided very professional, caring and personal service to our brother at what was a very emotional and stressful time for our family. Thanks to their skilled guidance and support, our brother felt involved in his care and his experience of treatment was much more positive. This gave us great peace of mind. BREVIN gradually reduced their support over time, as he regained his independence.”
