The Lakes offers personalised 24 hour specialist dementia and nursing care in a comfortable, modern environment. Every resident has access to a homely household living area, including a lounge, sitting room, kitchen and dining room.
Residents’ are able to enjoy the social activities going on every day in the central communal areas including a hairdressing salon, coffee shop and garden lounge. The garden, lounge and coffee shop on the ground floor was created to be the perfect place for meeting family and friends.
RACS have worked with The Orders of St John Trust on other care homes and were flattered to receive yet another invitation to join the project team for this prestigious venture.
The client’s brief was simple – design the commercial kitchen to the same exacting high standards as other projects successfully completed by RACS for OSJCT and achieve a similar quality finish and performance. Utilising premier manufactures recognised as the market leaders in the catering industry, RACS’ selection of appliances included high output, low energy usage state of the art prime cooking and refrigeration equipment. The clients objectives and end result had been achieved.
