Leonards Croft Care Home Stafford, West Midlands

Leonards Croft Care Home, Stafford - Conversion project

The project involved the conversion of an existing Hotel into a Specialist Care Home facility for individuals with autistic spectrum disorders. The care home has been designed to offer a low stimulus, homely and relaxed environment, whilst offering robust furnishings.

The Care unit now has five self-contained flats each with their own Activities of Daily Living (ADL) mini kitchen aimed at promoting independence, whilst maintaining safety, and three bedrooms with en-suite.The new care home now benefits from a very spacious and modern kitchen with separate dining room, a lounge and learning room. 

Great effort has also been spent on the outside to form a large and secure communal garden.
