Our Model Of Care

Our Model Of Care

Ashdale Care Ireland practices a therapeutic model of attachment and trauma informed care. Every aspect of our work is based on a set of core values which underpins our practice and informs our model of residential care:


Healthy attachment is a developmental requirement


A safe and emotionally containing environment is necessary for change and growth


Feeling respected and valued contributes to personal well-being


All behaviour is communication


Healthy trusting relationships foster a positive sense of self


A reflective, responsive culture among staff and residents increases empathy


A reflective, responsive culture among staff and residents increases empathy


The development of resources and adaptive coping skills builds resilience

We offer a psycho-social therapeutic programme of care where emphasis is placed on supporting young people to recognise and manage emotional and behavioral difficulties and to develop a greater capacity for healthy relationships.

We establish a routine based on the needs of the young person and emphasise positive expectations. Intervention strategies, innovative practice approaches and appropriate resources are utilised to support each young person in achieving their full potential.


Person Centred Planning is about the young person and staff working in partnership to create a personal development plan (PDP) for the young person’s journey with us.


The Individual Development Plan is a goals oriented plan individually tailored for each young person based on a long, medium and short term programme of care. It is periodically reviewed through multi-disciplinary team meetings and with the young people.
