Newbury care home awarded ‘Best Specialist Dementia Design’
We are delighted to announce that our care home project in Newbury, won ‘Best Specialist Dementia Design’ at this year’s Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.
Falkland Grange Care Home, Newbury
As part of our growing portfolio with Porthaven, the new care home at Newbury adopts a proven approach to a nursing and dementia landscape creating a series of communal and private spaces that allow residents, families and staff to engage with the external environment.
The landscape design seeks to reinforce Porthaven’s reputation for providing high quality care with an emphasis on individuality. Our design includes a series of accessible communal terraces and lawns that are linked via sensory planted pathways. Private patio areas accessed directly from ground floor suites allow residents to personalise their space. Together the design and layout help to reduce the scale and massing which in turn creates an intimate feel and sense of tranquillity – key to the wellbeing of residents.
