Trindlemoss and Warrix Avenue
Health and wellbeing from the heart of the community
We are creating much-needed community options to support people in our society who are amongst the most vulnerable and have complex care needs.
The accommodation will include:
- a new learning disability day facility
- supported accommodation for people with complex learning disabilities (20 houses)
- a small care home for people with learning disabilities who have very high support needs (6 houses)
- community based mental health rehabilitation (9 houses)
In consultation with people who use our existing learning disability services, we are re-developing the property, gardens and grounds (formerly known as Red Cross House) to provide person-centred, wrap-around care that focuses on each individual’s personal outcomes and keep people in the heart of their community.
- Trindlemoss, is the new name for the learning disability facilities – the name was chosen by people with learning disabilities who will use the extensive facilities, including sensory garden and hydrotherapy pool.
- The other part of the site, which will be used by people recovering from mental ill heath before they move on to greater independence, will be known simply as Warrix Ave.
Completion is scheduled for spring 2019.
What happens next?
Our services are fundamental keystones that support significant numbers of people – those who use our services and carers. We are developing new models of care that are outcome focussed, flexible and joined up; we will have a multi-disciplinary team working throughout the complex.
The central location will provide residents with the opportunity to become involved in local community activities. There will be opportunities for open days e.g. craft days, where people can share activities with the community.
