This unique 47-bed Care Home with nursing and dementia care plus an adjacent 14-bed Extra Care scheme is situated in a key location in Dovercourt overlooking the estuary of the River Stour on the Essex / Suffolk border.
This innovative scheme refurbishes an existing Care Home into high quality self-contained Extra Care apartments offered on a mixed tenure basis to older people who may be in need of Care but able to enjoy an independent lifestyle. The design of the adjoining new Care Home posed the challenge of producing a residence with the same architectural language to complement the very strong and distinctive style of the existing building.
The new Care Home provides independence and privacy for individuals, as well as communal areas. The individual bedrooms are spacious, and the large, double glazed windows allow fantastic sea views from many of the rooms.
The kitchen and laundry are located within a small extension to the old building which serves the new Home via a new glazed link.
The attractive sitting and dining rooms in both buildings look out to sea, where the large amount of shipping creates constant interest.
