Malsis Hall

Malsis Hall is a refurbished country house and estate that provides a Care Home with Nursing as well as a Care Home without Nursing. There is also a purpose-built Hospital on site along with more independent Studio Apartments. This provides a clear care pathway and gives various living and support options to match need, whilst enabling the individual to live in the least restrictive environment safely.

The service holistically supports people with complex mental health conditions on their journey to recovery and independence. We strive to provide quality care and support to enable the person to be as safe and independent as they possibly can be and that they have a clear care pathway back into the community.

We provide opportunities to develop and maintain skills and coping strategies needed for everyday life. We pride ourselves on early intervention and our pathway at Malsis Hall ensures the person builds and develops confidence enabling them to successfully progress down the various available living options on-site to living in the community.

We place emphasis on maximising quality of life and reducing admissions to hospital.

  • We are committed to keeping families and previous carers involved at all times as we begin the care planning journey focusing on recovery, transition and discharge whether to one of our internal cottages/apartments or into a community-based living setting.


At Malsis Hall we recognise keeping in contact with family and friends is an integral part of any recovery journey. We encourage relatives and friends to visit at any time and are committed to supporting the family as a whole.
