Beeches Manor Wokingham: a template for Dementia Housing with Care

Cover Case Study 96

This Housing LIN Case Study no 96 by Quattro Design Architects showcases a project which can be seen as the future for dignified independent living with care for people living with, and expected die with, dementia. Housing & Care 21 had the vision to translate the Green House® model of dementia care home living into a model which supports people in a cluster of one bedroomed flats rather than en-suite bedrooms. Quattro translated this vision of care into a built form and Wokingham Borough Council embraced the model and identified a further need for independent living for a group of adults with learning difficulties who could benefit from discreet support at Beeches Manor.
