Benedict house, on the junction of Park Road and Copers Cope was formally a nursing home that was closed by the Care Quality Commission. We reported on this at the time.
Omega Mears, a care service provider will be using it as a ‘residential support centre’ to provide ‘accommodation, care and support services’ for ‘homeless families, vulnerable young adults and emergency housing requirements arising from healthcare needs and other issues’.
The property has 41 bedrooms in total and Omega have submitted a comprehensive plan and will be supervised 24 hours a day.
