60 Bed Dementia Specialist Care Home, Belfast

60 bed dementia care and nursing home for Belfast central Mission

Just outside Millisle, on the Donaghadee Road, overlooking the Irish Sea lies an elevated site with stunning panoramic views up and down the beautiful coastline.  From the outset it was determined that the proposed design would be a place of refuge, that it would reflect a well-known, traditional and established local building typology and that, as a result, the new building would become a place of comfort and safety for its residents.  The setting certainly lends itself to this approach – that of a haven on the hillside overlooking the stormy sea. For a person to feel ‘at home’ it is important that we understand what that means in their particular context. A building that evokes early memories of ‘home’ is far more likely to become a place of refuge for someone who is starting to suffer from the stress of memory loss and diminished cognitive ability
