Registered Care Homes

Our Registered Care Homes provide 24/7 support for adults with long-term mental health needs. We focus on co-production, and person-centred approaches to provide opportunities for people to recover, develop skills and step down to more independent living.

Lynton Terrace received an overall rating of Requires Improvement, and a rating of Good in two of the five areas, in October 2023.

Harwood Road received an overall rating of Good, and a rating of Good in each of the five areas, in December 2023.

Talgarth Road received an overall rating of Good, and a rating of Good in each of the five areas, in September 2019.

These ratings were last reviewed by CQC for all three services on 24th November 2023, and they found no evidence that they needed to carry out an inspection or reassess their ratings at this stage.

This could change at any time if they receive new information. The CQC will continue to monitor data about these services.
