Blackwood House Opens Doors to Independent Living For the Future

AN INNOVATIVE home which is set to be the model of how Edinburgh aims to help transform the day-to-day lives of people with disabilities has been unveiled for the first time. 

A working replica of the ‘Blackwood House’ was launched on 4 December at the Edinburgh Community Rehabilitation and Support Service in Longstone.  The home will provide a place for both customers and staff to test and feedback on the latest in technology enabled care within a realistic homely setting.

It is the first step in what is hoped to be the roll out of a number of the specialist properties in the city.
