The T. Roy Adams Dementia Care Centre is attached to an existing 218 bed Linhaven Home. It serves residents throughout the Niagara Region and includes a Complex Care Centre of 16 beds and a Respite Centre of 8 beds.
The two buildings have been designed as small clusters of bedrooms around open living rooms, with a hierarchy of spaces reflecting that of a typical family home. A specialized environment with appropriate clues, security of residents, and various therapeutic applications have specifically implemented in the Dementia Care Centre. This Complex Care unit is designed to form two enclosed landscaped courtyards to which typical residents have access to. The Respite Care Unit consists of one resident home area of eight beds arranged around a central, shared living room area.
This project was started under the firm’s former name of Mekinda Snyder Partnership.
