Burnfoot Coach House

Burnfoot Coach House

Burnfoot Coach House is a Residential Unit, registered for 29 residents with mental health problems. The Unit operates on a high staffing ratio. Our residents are people placed with us after being assessed as being in need of specialist care and following review by a consultant psychiatrist.

Whilst we cater for older adults with mental health needs, there are a few places available for people under 60 years. Each resident has a named carer who is responsible for attending to individual care needs, assisting the resident to retain their preferred lifestyle and recognising their right to make independent decisions with an emphasis on quality of life. Residents are encouraged, for as long as they are able, to continue leisure pursuits and hobbies in addition to any organised entertainment and visits. The care needs of residents are co-ordinated by the Manager and supported by a fully competent and trained home staff and community based health care staff.

Services available include:

  • All dietary requirements including religious, cultural, diabetic and vegetarian. Meals, snacks and drinks in resident’s rooms if required or preferred
  • Visiting doctor, dentist, district nurse, social worker, community psychiatric nurse, physiotherapist, chiropodist and occupational therapist
  • In-house laundry
  • Residents telephone
  • Specialist baths and hoists
  • Activity therapy sessions.

Other services are available but purchased by residents including: newspapers, toiletries, hairdressing, complementary therapies, private telephone and satellite/digital television and contributions to the cost of outside visits.
