CARE provider, Heathcotes Group, is introducing a new provision of independent supported living in Bradford which is scheduled to open later this year.

Heathcotes, which specialises in services for adults with learning disabilities and complex mental health needs, is redeveloping a property in Clayton to create Horton View featuring 14 apartments providing supported living for individuals who are stepping down from a hospital or full-time residential care setting.

Heathcotes’ Director of Business Development, Natalia Lysiuk, said: “Independent supported living is a model of care that Heathcotes have developed over the last two years. It offers the next step in the care pathway towards full independence for our service users."

Designed to help service users to develop their independent living skills, each property offers self-contained accommodation with its own lounge, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area.

The service will include an on-site office and a team of around 30 staff providing 24-hour care support when needed.
