Cygnet Wallace Hospital

119 Americanmuir Road, Dundee, DD3 9AG

Situated in a residential area of Dundee, Cygnet Wallace Hospital is a 10 bed specialist high dependency complex care service providing assessment and treatment for individuals with learning disabilities, with or without autistic spectrum disorder, as well as complex needs and behaviours. The team can also support those who have additional mental or physical health needs, as well as those who have been detained under the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act. We accept emergency referrals and the team are experienced in managing them quickly and efficiently to ensure transition for service users is as smooth as possible.

The team at Cygnet Wallace Hospital work towards discharge from the point of admission, ensuring they work with service users to create their own pathway to the community and more independent living. The integrated care pathways ensure each individual is supported to reach their full potential.

Cygnet Wallace Hospital is a detached purpose-built building, which enables service users to receive bespoke, person-centred support to move through a full recovery pathway. The service is split into multiple areas supporting individuals with different levels of need. This creates a care pathway within Cygnet Wallace Hospital from more acute intensive support towards residential-based support, and finally transitional studio flats to prepare individuals for moving on. There are a number of good sized living areas, including lounges, dining areas and life skills kitchens, where individuals can develop their skills, as well as a garden to enjoy outdoor activities.

Cygnet Wallace Hospital is located in the city of Dundee, which has an extensive array of community amenities to access, including leisure centres, social clubs, shops, colleges, and work placement settings. Service users can also enjoy walks and visits to the nearby botanical gardens and Discovery Quay.

The service has a dedicated activity coordinator who supports service users to have individual activity plans, which are created based on each person’s likes and hobbies. Their goal is to enable each individual to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their individual needs.
