The new 60 bed Bethesda Personal Care Home, attached to Bethesda Hospital, replaces the existing multi-storey personal care home. The facility includes four self-contained 15 bed clusters, each with its own design theme, capable of responding to specialized programming requirements. Each pair of clusters shares a nursing station, bathing suite and support areas. Special attention is given to linking interior and exterior spaces with clerestory windows and direct access to a variety of outdoor courtyards. The “downtown” area includes hair care, resident laundry, coffee shop, solarium and multi-purpose room with a feature fireplace. Local artists are able to display their work in specially designated areas.
