Advance were pleased to mark the opening of a new development of 6, 1-bed flats in Camborne, Cornwall alongside colleagues from the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and members of the local community. This new scheme is for people with mental health conditions. We heard from them directly as well as staff and family members about how important the accommodation, with Advance support, will be as they move out of a hospital setting back into the community.
The flats are built to a high standard and we have made use of assisted technology such as `tablets' to prompt customers about taking medication or to have face time conversations, video entry phone for security, CCTV and fingerprint recognition to gain access to the main entrance. Customers will be supported by local charities such as Addaction and a team of Advance staff will be onsite 24/7.
