Rishi Sodha, Care Director at Handsale, said: “We are absolutely delighted we now have an official opening date in the diary. All the staff here at Priesty Fields can’t wait to welcome the new residents with open arms and create a truly comfortable and thriving care environment for them - where they can maintain their independence and continue to live fulfilling lives.”
The innovative physical structure of the building will be tailored to suit the specific needs of people requiring continuous care, with enticing communal areas that encourage independence and stimulate the senses being included in the design.
Positioning itself as an interactive and inviting community hub, Priesty Fields’ holistic approach will take into account peoples’ physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. Biophilic ‘living walls’ and natural wood, stone, and glass features will help to enhance mental wellbeing, while its human-centric interior design will provide an authentic and homely atmosphere.
The home will also be sustainable, being built with a heat recovery system and environmentally friendly lighting for low energy consumption - aligning with the wider environmental objectives of Hansdale.
Rishi continued: “We hope the communal areas will provide the perfect environment for stories to be told and friendships to be forged - creating a strong sense of community within the home. Our opening day will provide the residents and their families with the perfect opportunity to gain an insight into how we operate at Handsale, and hopefully rest easy in the knowledge that their loved ones will receive the highest quality of person-centered care.”
He concluded: “We can’t wait for the opening of Priesty Fields. There may also be a surprise or two on the day to mark the much-anticipated occasion.”
