Extension of the nursing home, creation of a Dementia care unit, an activity centre offering individualized care and non-medical accommodation

Characteristics of the operation

Restructuring and extension of a not for profit nursing home, with an increase in capacity from 50 to 65 places and diversification of the care services provided. The project made it possible to:

  • Deploy 50 long-term beds for permanent clients in individual rooms + 2 long-term beds for temporary clients, organized in small groups of 5 or 6 beds
  • Create a Dementia care unit with 12 long-term beds for permanent clients and 1 bed for temporary clients
  • Design an activity centre offering individualized care that is highly interconnected with the Dementia care unit
  • Develop a community centre (restaurant, activity area, beauty centre, shopping area, spiritual area) that is oriented towards the world outside of the facility
  • Organize centralized administrative, medical and logistical services
  • Create non-medical accommodation for families and trainees, employees in need of accommodation or healthy elderly persons.
  • Implement an approach based on environmental quality (wooden boiler room, timber structure for the extension: winner of a national timber construction award)
