In La Valence are 130 residents housed in need of nursing home care. They live in groups of 6 to 8 people and all have their own single room. For married couples are 24 care homes realized.
It is a transparent, open building with lots to see and do. A living and vibrant building, no tranquil beauty. The building is characterized by the abundance of daylight, so you can experience what time of day it is and what the weather is like. There are no interior corridors, there is always natural light and exterior views are available.
The atrium is the heart of the building and part of that vibrancy, all the traffic, all the comings and goings goes through the glass-covered atrium. Here you will find the special and attractive spaces such as the chapel, a hairdresser, a library with internet access, a lounge area with picture, colours and sound, the fitness and wellness area. Moreover, there are opportunities to develop even more activities and initiatives.
The glass-covered atrium is also a street, an outdoor area with walkways, glass lifts and open staircases. Here are the entrances of homes and residential areas. The residents overlook this atrium and sit in a protected outdoor area on the terrace. The recreation room, the entrance of the building and the entrance square is oriented to the south, so that people can sit down and thereby contribute to the desired liveliness.
In addition to the nursing home are two apartment towers created for independent elderly. They can, if necessary, make use of the care that is provided in the nursing home La Valance.
