Heathcotes Group has opened independent supported living apartments in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, for adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs.
Brendon House features four self-contained homes for individuals who are stepping down from a hospital or full-time residential care setting. Each property has its own lounge, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
The two-storey building includes a couple of apartments and communal space on each floor, as well as a separate area for an on-site team of around 10 support workers providing 24-hour assistance when needed.
‘The opening of Brendon House is another step in the expansion of our enhanced supported living services, which we have developed to complement our full-time residential care provision,’ said Heathcotes director of business development Natalia Lysiuk.
‘For the people we support, the type of accommodation we offer at Brendon House represents the next stage in the care pathway towards full independence. It is also suitable for individuals who require a single-person service due to their complexity and inability to live with others.’
Having established supported living provision in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire, the care provider is looking to increase this type of service and accommodation in the East Midlands.
Heathcotes Group has over 74 residential and supported living services nationwide. The company provides services supporting individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome, autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, personality disorder, physical disabilities, Prader-Willi Syndrome, sensory impairments, speech difficulties and severe epilepsy.
