This 58-bed extra care scheme was constructed as part of a wider development masterplanned by IDPartnership. Later phases will also include 12 bungalows to develop a ‘core-and-cluster’ facility. The extra care proposal has been designed to offer the highest design standards in line with the HAPPI report recommendations and includes full catering kitchen, lounge/dining areas with terraces, assisted bathing, IT area, shop, hairdressing and activity rooms. The landscaping is also geared towards elderly activities with sensory garden and allotment planter elements.
