A full planning application has been made in Erdington, Birmingham for Liberty Care Development for a 77 single occupancy bedroom care home, with each bedroom having a private wet room. Liberty Care Development is a leading developer of care homes in the North West and Midlands providing bespoke environments with a high quality level of service.
This is a joint venture by Liberty Care Development and an extra care provider on previously developed land. The site has been recently cleared of the former light industrial buildings and is located at the north-east edge of the Erdington Local Action Plan.
The care home is designed over 3 floors encompassing extensive communal areas offering a private dining room, hair & beauty salon, treatment room, activity room and cinema. There is also a visitors lounge and gardens to ensure that residents are able to welcome their family into their new home environment. The ancillary spaces have been designed to ensure they flow with the needs of the care givers to the residents. Externally the building is nestled into the landscape which enables the building to find comfort in its setting. A variety of public and private garden areas have been designed to allow for a sensory experience at every opportunity, alongside a series of gardens surrounding the building, all to support mind, body, and general wellbeing. The clients aspiration is to encourage independent use of the spaces, promoting mobility and sense of freedom.
