Bristol Retirement Living
An integrated campus facility, Bristol Retirement Living comprises a 63-bed dementia care home and 200 Extra Care homes in a mix of one and two bedroom apartments. The facility is designed to offer state-of-the art, age appropriate and dementia friendly accommodation with a range of tenure types across the Extra Care housing.
This is an ambitious scheme, however it remains domestic in scale, with particular attention given to the layouts of each area of accommodation, including internal and external security and the inclusion of natural daylight to promote healthy lifestyles.
In-line with Bristol City Council’s ‘Living Well with Dementia in Bristol’ strategy, the entire campus will offer a new approach to the provision of desirable accommodation with help and support available at various levels, dependent upon need. In addition to accommodation, all residents and visitors will benefit from a flexible central area designed for the use of the whole community, to include shops, cafés, exercise areas, art and craft workshops and spaces for work and learning, all set in rich and active landscaped gardens.
Bristol Retirement Living will be truly aspirational, attractive and obtainable to all, regardless of level of care needs, personal wealth or tenure preference. Benefiting the whole community, the scheme will create positive, welcoming and engaging health and social care environments, accessible and enjoyable for all.
