Summer 2013 brought the opening of Brooke House Care Home, in the Denton area of Newcastle. This is our sixth new build project for client Prestwick Care Group, and the second Home constructed by Brims Construction Ltd.
This 50 bed Specialist Care Home will provide care for the elderly suffering from dementia. The Home’s décor has taken inspiration from the University of Stirling’s recommendations on design for people with dementia.
The Home’s bedroom accommodation is split over three floors, with spacious communal areas on each floor. A basement houses service and staff back of house facilities. The crowning features are the corner lounges, on two levels, each with large expansive corner windows and balconies, which take advantage of fabulous views looking down the TyneValley.
The completed Home will not only provide people in the Denton area of Newcastle with a high quality Home for people to reside in, it is also a significant new local employer in the area and a landmark gateway into Newcastle.
