On the site of the current Wendhorst an innovative home care concept is being realized for Viattence clients in an innovative care concept. In addition, the new neighborhood will be completed with the development of owner-occupied homes. With this new building plan the large regional “nursing home institute” Wendhorst disappears and there is an open neighborhood where the residents of the Viattence houses are part of everyday life in the immediate vicinity. This is in line with the vision of Viattence, namely providing care and support in the various village centers and therefore as close to home as possible.
The location will be transformed into a new neighborhood with owner-occupied homes, a centrally located animal pasture and 12 ‘houses’ for a total of 96 residents with a heavy demand for care. The care homes are located at the front of the site, bordering the pond and the Haneweg. Each house offers space for 8 residents. The ‘houses’ are built in the shape of a courtyard and are connected by a beautiful garden, which residents of Viattence can use freely. In the new building on the Eperweg, the residents will sleep upstairs and live downstairs, just like at home.
