Supported living units open at Glenside


Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The first stage of a new development at has been opened at Glenside Manor in Salisbury.

As one of the final stages of the care pathway for neuro rehabilitation, Glenside has built Horizon Close for more independent service users.

There are nine self contained supported living bungalows and an assessment bungalow, which will be used to establish exact needs before a service user moves into one of the bungalows.

Care staff are permanently on call to the bungalows should a service user have any difficulty.

Attached to the bungalows is the Horizon Centre, a day therapy centre which also provides a venue for social activities in the evening and at weekends.

Glenside managing director Denis Barry said his company was working towards providing a complete service for people living with the effects of a brain injury, from post trauma through to a supported living.
