GROUP

Orientation takes place on a Monday and enquiries can be made with the programme coordinator or at the nurses’ station.

Groups should only be missed for psychologist or psychiatrist consultations.


GROUP PROGRAM

A therapeutic group programme is legally compulsory in all psychiatric hospitals in South Africa.  The programme at M-Care Optima is carefully compiled in order that every group benefits the patient with great value but that the programme in total will have therapeutic effect.  Continuous participation with this form of treatment is highly recommended.

  • Always attend the groups; you will be called to go for psychiatric or psychological consultation. Groups may not be left for shopping, physiotherapy, dietician, gym or spa.
  • For more information regarding the groups, speak to the Group co-ordinator.
  • A copy of the group planning is attached to the notice board on your left as you go towards the kitchen away from the nursing station. A copy is available on the first floor pinned to the notice board right opposite the nursing station just to the right of therapy room 2.  A copy can be obtained from the Group Coordinator on Mondays.
