HEATHCOTES OPENS NEW SUPPORTED LIVING IN BRADFORD

Heathcote Group's brand-new Horton View supported living development.

Care provider Heathcotes Group has opened Horton View, a new provision of independent supported living properties in Bradford for adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs.

An existing property in Clayton is being redeveloped in two phases to create a total of 14 self-contained apartments for individuals who are stepping down from a hospital or full-time residential care setting, to improve their independent living skills. The service includes a team of around 30 support workers providing 24-hour care support when needed.

Contractor John Ryan Developments Ltd has completed Phase 1 which features six self-contained apartments providing single-person accommodation, alongside laundry facilities and office space. Phase 2 is due for completion soon, providing eight more apartments as well as a communal lounge, laundry facilities, staff break-out space and additional office space. Care professionals, families and commissioning groups are invited to contact Heathcotes to arrange an appointment to view.

Luke Hoyland, Horton View Service Manager, said: “Horton View has been designed by Heathcotes’ in-house architectural consultancy, JDS Design. They have done a superb job in creating enhanced provision for our service users and support team. Each apartment offers spacious accommodation with its own lounge, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Horton View follows our established model for independent supported living, providing a homely environment which enables service users to develop their daily living skills. It’s also a form of provision which naturally fosters a sense of community and social inclusion amongst residents, progressing in tandem with their increasing independence. Our on-site team is available to assist whenever required and each resident has a designated support worker for ongoing one-to-one support.”

With a head office in Chesterfield, Heathcotes Group has over 72 residential care services nationwide. The company provides a range of specialist services supporting individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, Personality Disorder, physical disabilities, Prader-Willi Syndrome, sensory impairments, speech difficulties and severe epilepsy.
