New service will bring vulnerable adults back home to Wiltshire

A new purpose built service and home for adults with complex learning disabilities and challenging behaviour is being built in Devizes. AWP is working with NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide accommodation for up to nine vulnerable adults who are currently being cared for out of the area. These individuals will be brought back home to Wiltshire, to live closer to their families and receive gold-standard care suited to their specific needs.

This service will be based at Green Lane Hospital, Devizes and is due to open next summer. It will be called the Daisy, as the finished building layout will resemble a flower pattern.

Deborah Fielding, Accountable Officer of Wiltshire CCG, said "We are delighted to be able to bring Wiltshire patients back to the county and provide them with a specialised service totally designed to enable them to live a fulfilled and meaningful life within a community setting.

"Wiltshire CCG is committed to provide the right care for individuals closer to their family and in a care setting that provides the highest quality of service suitable to their specific needs."

"This new service allows for Individuals to live within a home setting and each living area will be fully equipped with a kitchen, en-suite and lounge allowing independent living and self-management - providing them with a 'home from home'.

Jane Anderson, AWP's Clinical Lead for Specialised Services, says that the new accommodation will provide a safe and supportive environment.

"For some people with complex learning disabilities, living at home is not always an option as they can require specialised care in the right setting. The new service has been designed to create a home for them which, while equipped and staffed to meet their needs, will feel as far from a clinical unit as possible."

Plans for the building will be on display within Devizes Library from Monday 12th October until Monday 19th October 2015 and can also be viewed by clicking on the links below.
