College Green Nursing and Dementia
Phase 2 of Bournville Village Trust’s College Green Care Village
A development of an 80-bed nursing and dementia facility, designed by Bournville Architects, the £5.3m development will form one of four new buildings that make up the Care Village.
Commissioned by Gracewell Healthcare, the dementia unit will be built alongside the 212-bed ExtraCare scheme, a 35-bed Passivhaus apartment scheme for individuals with learning difficulties and a health and well-being centre.
The design has been reviewed by experts from Stirling University’s Dementia Services Development Centre, which is putting together guidance on how to create truly dementia-friendly care environments. The nursing and dementia facility should be open by the middle of 2016, with the entire development completed in 2016/17.
