An adult mental health service providing specialist support.

Blackburn Road offers both long and short-term care for adults with diagnosed mental health conditions. Operating in Lancashire, Blackburn Road is purposefully small to offer a calm, tranquil and homely setting for residents allowing them to focus on what’s important to them.

Our aim is to make a difference; to enable people to optimise their potential and enjoy full and rewarding lives. We are committed to putting the individual at the heart of everything we do, providing a seamless and personalised recovery approach and with a focus on our users’ wishes, hopes and expectations. We’re not just here to help someone feel protected and safe, we’re here to help them get better and to move forward in their lives.

All residents have access to and are encouraged to use our range of on-site therapies including occupational therapy, psychology, in addition to the nursing care they receive. We care for the psychological and emotional needs of every resident just as much as the physical needs.

We work in partnership with clients and their families to offer bespoke assessed care packages aligned to service user specific in-house training and clinical nurse-led governance. This ensures that each member of our social care workforce has the right mix of skills, expertise, cultural awareness, confidence, and passion for their assignments, while aiming to maximise the positive outcomes for our clients through care packages that have transitioned from prescriptive and needs-led delivery to holistic, bespoke, and outcome-based approaches, however that looks for each resident. By believing in better, we help our residents to achieve more every day and see them return home.

Conditions we support, but are not limited to:

  • bipolar disorder
  • mild autistic spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • mild learning disabilities
  • personality disorder
  • schizophrenia
