Intergenerational care

Posted: 20 Feb 2019

The Carless and Adams team had a fantastic day at Nightingale House in London. A leading specialist in residential care which also hosts the Apples and Honey Nursery in its grounds, from which children can often be seen within the nursing home taking part in planned activities with residents such as art, baking, singing and performance. This was the first scheme of its type in this country following on from similar schemes in the US, Canada and Japan. There is evidence that when generations come together everyone benefits, it combats loneliness stimulates interest and participation amongst the residents, and the enjoyment of the children was plain to see.
CAP would like to thank the staff, residents and children for letting us join in with their day and we are very much looking forward to developing schemes that are looking to follow a similar model in the very near future.

Carless & Adams start the year with success!

Posted: 11 Jan 2019

Massive achievement for Graham Land & Development as we managed to secure planning permission for a replacement care facility at Harpwood Care Home, Sevenoaks! It has been a challenging application within the green belt but the local authorities considered the proposal to be thoughtful and sensitive and subsequently approved the application under delegated powers.

The proposal will update the current provision with a new state of the art care home providing a total of 80 suites, a day centre and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Fantastic team effort and special thanks to all the consultants who helped us land this application.

Harpwood Care Home update!

Posted: 05 Nov 2018

Our application for Harpwood Care Home has reached a milestone!
We met with the planning officer on site last week and we are hopeful that the site may finally achieve its potential to care for more elderly people in a beautiful area.

The proposal includes the demolition of the existing building due to its current constraints in order to create a bespoke care home that will accommodate 80 bedrooms, spacious communal areas and beautifully landscaped gardens. The vernacular architecture has been enhanced with detailing found on the surrounding areas and we cannot wait to know the final outcome due by end of 2018!
