New Independence for Adults at the Former Nightingale Care Home
WWA Studios is ecstatic to be a part of the team that will transform the former Nightingale Care Home in Ware into a fully assisted residence, allowing adults with brain injuries to regain their independence.
WWA has been commissioned by The Disabilities Trust, working in partnership with the Hertfordshire and West Essex Integrated Care Board, to design and transform the building and associated landscaping into a state-of-the-art 15-person residence.
The Nightingale Care Home will be transformed into a fully assisted residence and will enable individuals to enjoy independence whilst optimising well-being through innovative service provision. The homes will provide a combination of rehabilitation and care and include bedrooms and self-contained living spaces.
WWA will be working alongside accessible designers Motionspot with Irene Sobowale, Chief Executive at The Disabilities Trust, commenting: “We are delighted to be working with pioneers of this concept, accessible design specialists, WWA and Motion Spot, to develop a space that will influence the wellbeing and progress of the residents, whilst supporting the Government’s agenda for increased independent living that decreases reliance on the NHS.”
The property will be reimagined to look and feel like a home, by placing the emotional and psychological requirements of the residents first as well as drawing on the latest research into psychologically informed environments. Mark Slater, our Design Director says: “We are delighted to be part of the team delivering this state-of-the-art residence for The Disabilities Trust. We are looking forward to creating homes to aid rehabilitation and recovery whilst making the most of the character of the current property on site.”
