In 2003 Montpelier completed a turn-key development for a 24 hour nursed care home for patients with long term mental health nursing needs. The twelve residents formerly lived in a hospital ward but now enjoy the benefits of a more personal and homely environment which promotes independence, dignity and privacy. The nursing and clinical support encourages and enables the residents to be involved in the community through employment and education.
The design evolved through close consultation with the Commissioners, the healthcare provider Care UK and the residents of the new home. The project was completed on budget and on programme.
