As part of our continued commitment to providing specialist support to people with brain injuries, we’re celebrating the latest purpose-built addition to our portfolio of brain injury rehabilitation services, Linnet Mews!
Located in Clowne, Chesterfield, the new home will provide active, community-based rehabilitation to individuals in the area that have suffered brain injuries.
Putting people at the heart of all we do, we marked the moment of unlocking the property with two people we support from our other nearby services. Led on an exclusive tour by Voyage Care’s Operations Director Vicki Bennett, and Development Manager Karen Beydoun, they excitedly looked on as the door opened, and made their way in to explore and inspect the new home!
The property has recently received a refurbishment and will now undergo a technical transformation! We’re making some limited accessibility improvements to the home to meet the needs of those with brain injuries before opening in Spring 2024. This includes the addition of a passenger lift and expanding communal spaces to provide more space for socialising and therapy activities.
Spread across two floors, Linnet Mews features both en-suite bedrooms and self-contained apartments on the ground floor, providing a transition pathway as people progress towards greater independence. On the first floor, there’s a dedicated therapy quarter comprising of a consultation room and fully equipped gym, reflecting the vital role of therapy interventions in promoting effective brain injury rehabilitation outcomes.
When asked about the decision to introduce a dedicated therapy area, Operations Director Vicki Bennett said:
“Having a therapy quarter in our new development is crucial for promoting tailored rehabilitation pathways. It provides people with brain injuries convenient access to their therapy treatments and fosters a supportive environment for their sessions – which is vital for engagement in rehabilitation. This integration will also promote active rehabilitation, which instils independence and achieves amazing outcomes for people with brain injuries.”
Specialising in slow stream rehabilitation, our new site supplements our existing brain injury services in North Derbyshire that offer longer-term placements for those requiring ongoing or permanent support – enhancing the pathway of specialist, brain injury support across the Midlands.
With a firm focus on developing daily living skills and regaining independence, the slow stream rehabilitation approach enables people to actively participate in their local community. Conveniently located at the heart of the Clowne community, the location of Linnet Mews offers the perfect place for people to put their skills into practice.
Alongside providing essential support for brain injury survivors in the area, our new service will also create several rewarding jobs, further strengthening community ties and demonstrating our status as the sector-leading provider and our ongoing commitment to enhancing local opportunities in communities across the UK.
