New Daisy service on target for summer opening
The Daisy, a brand new specialist residential home in Devizes providing care for up to 9 individuals is near completion and will open this summer.
This ground-breaking new home will enable people with complex learning disabilities and challenging behaviour to return to Wiltshire and receive specialised services close to their family and friends, in a home from home setting. A multi-disciplinary team experienced in providing specialist care, will take an innovative and personal approach, supporting and encouraging people to live at The Daisy as independently as possible.
Based near Green Lane Hospital, The Daisy, (so called because of its flower shaped design) has been achieved through the partnership working of NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning group and Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP). Through this collaboration, services will be delivered in a responsive way, enabling people to make their own choices and support them to live their life in the community.
People living at The Daisy will be helped to maintain links with their family and friends and to build a fulfilled life through community integration such as education, sports and leisure. They will also be able to access mainstream services when they need them, to ensure that their health and social needs are met.
Each home will offer a fully equipped area with a kitchen, en-suite bathroom, lounge area and garden. People have contributed to the design of their own areas by choosing colour schemes and soft furnishings. A welcoming communal area will also be available.
