Inpatient Treatment

Bramacare's inpatient programme provides individualised care, within a homely environment. 

Your team of Doctors, specialist therapists and care team will provide the supervision, support and guidance that you need to achieve your main aims of better nutritional health and wellbeing.

Your detailed assessment allows us to customise your care plan to your needs, taking account of your unique history and background. Your family and loved ones can also play an active role, particularly when planning transition back home.


Our residential treatment begins the transfer of responsibility to the individuals themselves as they experience and relearn healthy attitudes and behaviours with food.

Our customised care plans are tailored to each persons unique requirements, and aim to provide:
