The Gateway Neuro Rehab
The Gateway, is an innovative development for Keiro, designed to support people with traumatic and long term neurological conditions, helping them to regain their independence. Located at the heart of Middlehaven, an area of regeneration, the scheme provides community-based specialist services as well as transitional housing.
Alistair McDonald, Keiro’s Business Relationship Director, explained the concept behind The Gateway: “For people who are going through rehabilitation for a brain injury, serious stroke or a spinal injury, the traditional kind of environment people have experienced has been very clinical. That is very different from the kind of environment we are moving into here. The Gateway provides a social context for people’s rehabilitation.”
The contemporary 6-storey building provides a range of neuro-rehab services, 40 in-patient bedrooms, and community health and well-being hub. The hub, designed for public access, includes café, pool, gym, and therapy rooms. Alongside the main building, step-forward accommodation by Erimus provides transitional and supported living options with 2-bed flats, bungalows and 3-bed houses available to clients moving towards independent living.
The Gateway aligns with NHS initiatives: reducing costs by facilitating discharge from acute settings to community care and improving long term outcomes for clients by providing the right support at each stage of recovery. Opened in January 2014, the scheme has attracted national attention with several awards including RICS NE Project of the Year, Pinders Best Young Adult facility, BBH Best Supported Living and Client of the Year.
