Beechley Drive is an enhanced community home, providing a community focused rehabilitation and recovery service for people with mental health needs. Located in Fairwater, just outside of Cardiff, the home is ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the local community.
Our residents predominantly have a dual diagnosis, with a primary mental health diagnosis. The people we support may also have forensic needs, a learning disability, mild to moderate challenging behaviour, communication difficulties, and other conditions such as epilepsy.
The home is made up of:
- A mixed-gender unit for 4 adults
- A female-only unit
Our team works together to develop personalised, recovery-focused treatment programmes and care pathways. The home strives to stabilise mental health, reduce behaviours that challenge, develop daily living skills and actively maintain working relationships with case managers and community teams, to enable a smooth and successful transition to life outside the home environment.
All individuals are encouraged and supported to participate in meetings promoting self-advocacy and empowerment, in a supportive environment. We are passionate that all individuals can maintain independence and we encourage this with support, security and compassion as part of a supported-living package.
Our service offers a mix of en-suite and bedroom-only accommodation with staff on site 24 hours a day. Our communal kitchen areas are equipped for making breakfast, light snacks and drinks in each of the homes.
We also provide domestic laundry areas for people to use with staff support if required. This encourages independence and daily living skills.
Residents are welcome to furnish their room with items from home.
