Craegmoor, part of the Priory Group of Companies, is investing over £100,000 in a new residential service in Sheffield for individuals requiring specialist support for their mental health needs, including personality disorder.
Bowden House, which is expected to open later in the year, will create 21jobs and provide care for up to11 individuals, including 5 beds for admissions that need short-term emergency placements. Some patients may also have a learning disability but with their primary need being mental health.
The service will aim to facilitate patients with the skills, development and progression required to move towards supported accommodation. Support workers will enable individuals to build confidence and provide guidance to build daily living skills, knowledge and access to the community.
The Registered Manager and the fully-trained staff will work closely with local healthcare professionals with the aim of rehabilitating patients back into the community.
Sarah Hughes, Managing Director of Craegmoor, said: “This service for individuals, who require specialist support for mental health needs, will bring high-quality, much needed care provision to the Sheffield area. The focus will be on rehabilitation and empowerment to enable and support the person to return to supported or independent living as quickly as possible.
“The experience Craegmoor and the Priory Group has in mental health, complex and long term care will enhance the care provision for the area.”
The investment has seen a complete renovation of the building to very high specifications to provide high quality accommodation for residents.
