A PIONEERING facility dedicated to the care of young adults with acquired brain injuries or complex disabilities has opened its doors.

The highly anticipated Nightingale House in the heart of Derby was officially opened by the mayor of the city, Councillor Paul Pegg.

The former private nursing and midwifery hospital and later a Macmillan unit on London Road, underwent a £1.5 million renovation project to transform the property into a home offering residential and short breaks services for young adults with complex needs.

Developed by award-winning established care providers, Progress Care Solutions has a portfolio of specialist residential facilities across the West Midlands and has now added Nightingale House to the East Midlands region.

The home boasts spacious communal areas and outside space with a sensory garden and a city living feel appealing to the younger client, state-of-the-art sensory room and specialist hydrotherapy bathing facilities. It has eight residential suites adapted and designed to meet individual requirements along with four additional rooms for clients wanting a short break stay.

Claire Haynes, managing director at Progress Care Solutions, said: “With Nightingale House, we want to create a unique environment designed to provide support and rehabilitation for young adults looking to progress in their lives and work towards living independently, whilst giving them the opportunity to build friendships and relationships with others who face similar challenges in life.

“Nightingale House is beautifully designed to create a comfortable home from home atmosphere for our clients rather than having a clinical feel.

“As part of the rehabilitation programmes for many clients, it is important that they feel very much a part of the community and the location is ideal, being in walking distance of Derby mainline railway station, Intu Shopping Centre and a host of local amenities that you would expect of a city location.

“We are delighted to have officially opened our doors to provide a well needed and exciting service in the Midlands and thank the mayor of Derby, Councillor Paul Pegg for doing the honours.”

Progress Care Solutions also operates other care homes across the Midlands including specialist residential and fostering services for children and young adults with complex or disability needs. Progress Care Solutions operates outreach support services to families in the local community helping to keep families together, and a range of community based activities and social groups for both children and young adults, all of which are focused around leading a normal life.
