Service Users will have an en-suite bedroom and a communal lounge and dining room, as well as access to other areas to relax, exercise, cook and participate in meaningful activities.

“Deanston House is a beautiful environment, set very close to the village of Doune, and we are confident that being part of the local community will have a significant positive impact on the residents, and help them on their road to recovery.

“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to create 60 jobs to support the new facility, which will primarily be advertised in the local area. It is very important to us that we support the local economy as much as possible, from recruiting the staff, to the food, to the contractors undertaking the work. We want this to be a local service for local people that everyone can be proud of.”

Deanston House will officially open in August.
