With the demand for excellent dementia care in purpose-built surroundings growing, Bristol based Milestones Trust are looking to up-date and modernise their flagship dementia care home, Humphry Repton House in Brentry.
Full planning consent has been granted by the Council to develop a 47-bed two storey care home, which would see a courtyard design principle used, of four wings each with either 11 or 12 bedrooms arranged around landscaped courtyards.
Naina Mandleker, Milestones Trust’s Director of Business Development, said: “This is a really positive step for us and cements our commitment to continuing to provide high-end dementia care in Bristol.
“The re-developed care home will take the total bed count of Humphry Repton House from 45 to 60 to include the existing wing of 13 rooms, enabling us to provide even more specialised care to those who need it most.”
The custom-designed accommodation will see each room have its own en-suite facilities, with the overall design allowing for residents to live in smaller family like communities, providing space to eat and relax in with access to either private courtyards or balconies.
