Priory Adult Care has invested more than £100,000 in the new residential service for individuals requiring specialist support for their mental health needs, including personality disorder.
Bowden House will eventually create up to 21 jobs and can provide care for 11 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.
Clive Betts MP said: “This is a tremendous facility and I welcome the specialist care provision to Sheffield. The focus on rehabilitation and supporting people with mental health needs to integrate into the community is to be welcomed and I wish Bowden House every success.”
