Durranhill Care Home (Carlisle)

41 Durranhill Road

01228 524297

At Durranhill Care home we provide an intensive rehabilitation to individuals leaving hospital after an extended stay in a mental health unit or locked rehabilitation unit. We also accept individuals from a number of other avenues.

We are a 10 bed residential project with full 24 hour support, set in over one acre of beautiful gardens.

How we help

We support people to develop positive social networks by engaging in voluntary work, physical exercise and education. We help individuals to manage their own behaviour by gradually giving back responsibility for their own lives.

After a typical length of stay of two years, people leave Duranhill able to control their medication, finances, tenancy and care.

Who we can help

We specialise in supporting people to rebuild their lives after contact with forensic mental health services or for those who live with personality disorders, schizophrenia and drug and alcohol issues.

Residents must have a care-coordinator to be eligible for a place at Durranhill. The care-coordinator or ward staff should contact us to make a formal referral, supplying details of the individual’s current care plan and risk levels.

We will then meet with the individual and discuss with them whether Duranhill would be right for them. Should this go well, and funding is agreed, we invite them to gradually build up visits to the project from a few hours to staying with us permanently.

Our values

At the heart of everything we do lies:

    • Hope: the belief that recovery is possible for every individual
    • Respect: valuing differences and all contributions
    • Enabling: giving people encouragement and support to achieve their goals
    • Inclusion: the belief that everyone has a right to participate fully in society.
