We are pleased to announce that the new apartment at Ballington House will open 22nd July 2019.
The new apartment has been designed to allow patients to practice their independent living skills before returning to the community. There are three ensuite bedrooms as well as a communal kitchen, lounge, dining area and laundry.
Patients in the new apartment will continue to benefit from the unique Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) model combined with Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and continue to work with the multidisciplinary team.
The service is rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission who reported that, ‘Staff were extremely caring and encouraged patients to develop and maintain independence’, and that ‘Staff had built up therapeutic relationships with patients that were based on trust and respect that helped promote recovery.’
Ballington House is located in the market town of Leek, Staffordshire and is a short walk away from the town centre where patients can access shops, cafes, leisure facilities and other community resources. Patients access the local community at the earliest opportunity and the town provides the ideal environment for patients to participate in their local community.
If you would like to see the new apartment or have any questions about the service, please contact Caroline Carnell.
