Building Underway for New Mental Health Unit In West Midlands

Cedar Lodge

Cedar LodgeA new care facility which will help adults with mental health and learning difficulties will be opening at Nuneaton early in 2019.

Cedar Lodge is being built by award winning provider Camino Healthcare, which already operates two well established units in the West Midlands which offer a similar service.

Located at Bucks Hill, Nuneaton, Cedar lodge is being built on previously neglected land and when finished will deliver mental health services that are greatly needed in the local area.

A variety of industry experts, Service Users, healthcare staff and Commissioners have had input into both the design and location of the building which will provide nursing care for both men and women aged between 18 and 65 and will be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

All bedrooms have generous ensuite facilities, TVs and hi-speed Wi-Fi. There will also be spacious climate controlled communal areas including kitchens, lounges, dining areas, gardens as well as a karaoke and cinema.

The multimillion-pound facility will bring in the region of 60 full and part time jobs to the area and will be staffed by a Multidisciplinary Team. Among the 60 jobs created, there will be opportunities for Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Activity Coordinators, Nurses and Healthcare Support Workers.

The project is being part funded by Yorkshire Bank.

Oliver Horsey, Chief Executive Officer of Camino Healthcare, said: “This is our third development in the West Midlands which will offer robust care packages for those on their personal journey of recovery.

“We have listened to lots of stakeholders and worked closely with those in the industry to build something which I hope is unique to the sector. We have combined their input with our expertise in absolutely every component of the building.

“For example, inside Cedar Lodge, the accommodation will be divided into three independent units meaning that we can really tailor both the environment and the care we provide to meet the needs of our Service Users. There is going to be a really therapeutic environment, especially with such a beautiful landscape on the doorstep.

“Understanding that everyone has different needs is crucial, which is why we shape every aspect of care and daily living to the individual.

“We are also very excited at the prospect of becoming a part of the Nuneaton community and want to work with local people and suppliers.”
