                A care village that ensures
every day is well lived in Warwick
Ensuring every day is well lived is a philosophy at the heart of all WCS Care homes – and at Woodside Care Village, it’ll be no different...
Opening in Autumn 2019, the home - off Spinney Hill in Warwick - will feature family-sized households for adults including people with mobility needs, dementia and hearing loss, as well as a spa, salon, cinema and a café plus a bike-for-two on a garden cycle track.
The new home’s been designed for Warwickshire-based charity WCS Care to encourage people to spend more time outdoors, which has benefits to health and wellbeing.
External walkways will replace internal corridors and an open-air plaza will provide easy access to shops and outdoor features; all designed to help people maintain a familiar life.
Technology that integrates into daily life without being intrusive will have a place too including circadian lighting and acoustic night-time monitoring, which can help improve sleep and have a positive impact on health and wellbeing.
Smart phone apps connected to mobile care monitoring will mean carers can spend more time with residents. It’s linked
to a Relatives’ Gateway, where people can check and interact with their loved one’s care 24-hours-a-day, wherever there is an internet connection.
Home Manager Samantha Stuart said: ‘Woodside Care Village is designed to give residents the opportunity to contribute to their new community, as little or as much as they want.
‘People will be able to enjoy what they’ve always done like popping to the shops, watching a film at the cinema, doing their laundry, looking after the garden or simply sitting in the café to watch the world go by; all within a safe, secure environment where residents have access to the care they want.
‘With features like mini golf, our side-by-side bike-for-two and an outdoor gym, there will also be plenty of opportunities to try something new.’
