The Dubbo Mental health Rehabilitation and Recovery Centre is a 10 bedroom facility providing rehabilitation and recovery services to adults with mental health conditions transferring from a hospital setting for further rehabilitation, connecting with the community and their family before going home or adults from the community requiring a short period of early intervention in a rehabilitation environment in order to prevent hospitalisation (step-up).
The facility will support the reintegration patients with the community and will provide support for families and locally based care. The facility will reflect a domestic environment, with individual patient rooms, and a strong connection with outdoor areas.
The facility will include:
- 10 separate bedrooms with ensuites;
- ADL kitchen and laundry;
- Consulting and meeting rooms;
- Activity room;
- Living / dining areas;
- Community gardens
- Family accommodation.
All work is being carried out in strict accordance with relevant NSW environmental legislation and consultation with Work Cover and the EPA. The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2012.
