Cygnet Adarna House now open

Cygnet Adarna House, our new open rehabilitation service in Bradford for men with mental health needs and a secondary diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, is now open and accepting admissions.

The service supports up to nine men in a homely, open and community facing environment for individuals who are preparing for community life, but need further support to move to more independent living.

This new service is a step-down service from Adarna Ward at Cygnet Hospital Wyke in Bradford. This enables individuals to continue to work on their independent living skills while being in a safe environment – with the advantage of continuing access to the same multi-disciplinary team (MDT). The service will also accept external referrals.

The team are highly experienced in supporting individuals with ASD. All members of staff are trained in understanding ASD and in how to create a supportive environment for everyone. The service has an array of facilities, all of which provide a low stimulus environment for individuals who may be experiencing heightened feelings of agitation. The service has been decorated in consultation with service users from Adarna Ward.

Clare Heaton, Registered Manager, said, “Cygnet Adarna House will be the last stop for many of our service users in their hospital journey. Being Registered Manager, I am looking forward to seeing our service users’ journey from being in hospital then moving through step-down services to becoming well, recovering, being able to support themselves and understand their needs, will just be amazing. It is why I love my job so much – it makes it so worthwhile .”

Cygnet Adarna House is located in the suburbs of Wibsey in Bradford and the team will focus on ensuring the individuals they support are part of their local community and can access education, employment and other opportunities to meet their needs. The service also benefits from great public transport links to local towns and cities including Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds and Manchester.
