Shackletons complete work on the new 71 bed £7 million Centre of Excellence for Dementia Care in Caernarfon.
Called Bryn Seiont Newydd, the Centre is the brainchild of Pendine Park’s owners Mario and Gill Kreft who turned to Shackletons to help them with furnishing the Centre.
Providing a better quality of life and enriching lives for residents, and creating a pleasant working space for employees, Shackletons focused on relaxation, privacy, stimulation and communal living complementing the Centre’s idyllic setting within 5 acres of tranquil gardens and countryside.
Creating a homely feel and a family environment that would meet the specialists needs of gender, age, and dementia sufferers, Shackletons developed and adapted a series of bespoke seating, bedroom and dining furniture to support people have as much independence as possible.
The small details were also taken care of with specially designed and developed memory boxes and strategically placed bespoke artwork in selective colour schemes to assist residents with wayfinding.
Mario, who is also the chair of Care Forum Wales, which represents the independent social care sector, said: “We are very proud of the Centre of Excellence for Dementia Care. Our aim here is to provide a world-class home that will become the focus for community-based care in the area. It will be the hub for other services including respite care, day care, memory clinics and outreach services supporting people in their own homes.
Sarah Thompson, Regional Sales Manager at Shackletons says: “It was a pleasure to be able to assist in creating this wonderful care environment and offer my knowledge and experience to ensure the specification met the expectations of all concerned, particularly the residents.”
