Balmain is registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to 29 people who may have mental health issues. The service cannot provide nursing care.
The primary function at Balmain is to offer support to those who are suffering from Mental Health issues or illnesses. Our mental health services are unique to the needs of the locality, in one area for example we support people with longer term severe and enduring mental health needs, in others we work with people with organic mental health problems of the ages of 18 and up who have high level of complex needs that have often challenged services.
Our aim is wherever possible to enable our residents to re-equip themselves to return to a normal life within the community. However we do appreciate that in certain circumstances there are residents that require a long term stay in a home that offers the best of welfare safety and security in a stable environment and being cared for by staff that they have come to know and trust.
For anyone needing support or care for mental health concerns, we offer a wide range of personalised services. Service users can be admitted either on an informal basis or on a more formal nature when unfortunately matters have deteriorated to a point where measures under the Mental Health Act are required. Under all circumstances each potential resident is formally and professionally assessed by a trained skilled member of our team.
