Creation of 14 rest places for day visitors, 14 places in an activity centre offering individualized care and 17 dwelling units suitable for special needs
Characteristics of the operation
Reconstruction, on a new site, of a not for profit nursing home which historically specialized in the care of elderly blind persons before extending its services to include all forms of sensory and cognitive deficits.
The reconstruction operation resulted in an increase in capacity from 66 to 74 beds as well as a diversification in the services provided by the facility, with:
- The design of a nursing home with 74 long-term beds (66 for permanent and 8 for temporary clients) and 14 rest places, making a total of 88 beds and places, subdivided into:
- 6 conventional living units with 10 beds each;
- A 14-bed Dementia care unit including a therapeutic kitchen, a rest room, two activity areas and a large terrace;
- A rest facility with 14 day-care places.
- The creation of a 14-place activity centre offering individualized care, with rooms measuring 22.6 m², all individual.
- The development of a training centre and an experimental therapeutic wellness centre measuring 300 square metres. Equipped with a Jacuzzi, a sensory shower, and a floating bed, this wellness space welcomes the nursing home’s clients every day on doctor’s prescription as part of the general care project.
- The construction of 17 dwelling units (16 with two main rooms and one with three main rooms) above the nursing home for independent adults who are vulnerable due to a sensory impairment.
