HammondCare’s The Pines and The Meadows represent a new standard in aged care – providing the reassuring atmosphere of home and the safety and service of high-quality facilities.
Maintaining independence Environment plays an important role in the ongoing independence of people with dementia. Designed to feel like home, but with numerous special features to help residents maintain autonomy, The Pines and The Meadows combine pleasant surroundings with an air of reassurance.
A cottage in a village HammondCare wanted to provide cottages for their residents, so that they could live in domestic, familiar spaces, much as they would at home. Attractive gardens and communal areas facilitate relaxation and socialisation, with specially fitted out, single-level residences allowing for privacy, comfort and family time.
Design for dignity Dementia care requires thoughtful design that caters to residents’ need to ‘read’ rather than remember their environment. These developments are carefully laid out to maximise independence and wayfinding, reducing anxiety and enabling a high quality of life.
