Development History

The new Hazeldene House is a brand new development from the Graham Care Group which is to replace the old facility ‘The Priory Care Home’ which could no longer be maintained as viable and sustainable, even in the short term. The new design incorporates contemporary standards and requirements and with modern facilities to care for elderly people requiring specialist nursing and dementia care.

The old care home was no longer fit for purpose and to do nothing would have meant that the facility would be lost. Whilst high quality care was still being provided within the Home the room sizes, corridor widths, shared toilets and bathrooms, and ancillary accommodation were way below what a new home should provide and not in keeping with the exceptional high standard of the other new Graham Care developments.

To replace the existing facility the area per resident has significantly increased as has the number of suites within the home.

The context of the development in terms of its physical, social and economic aspects was adapted throughout the design process to achieve a high quality replacement Residential Care Home.

The new home will provide a high standard of living and communal accommodation with an innovative style of elevation utilising traditional materials for this sensitive location. The design incorporates large glazed openings to maximise sunlight penetration into the building. In combination, this will contribute to the new home becoming a prime example of collective living and care for the elderly.
