Monmouthshire County Council's brand-new care home, Severn View Park, has opened.  Severn View Park Care Home will innovate how care is delivered to people with dementia, allowing them to live a life that matters to them. The care home brings a bespoke environmental design, based upon innovating best practice standards for people with dementia and a relationship-centered care model.  Residents have now moved in and Monmouthshire County Council would like to thank all residents and their families for helping to organise and facilitate the move. The new care home aims to maintain connections with the surrounding community on the new Crick Road housing development. By creating opportunities for the residents through events and shared spaces, residents can maintain a sense of personal identity and inclusion.  With four residences, each housing eight residents, the care home is centred around a new village hall for the new housing community, with gardens and allotments creating shared spaces for all.  The new care home was constructed by Lovell and funded through a partnership between Monmouthshire County Council and the Gwent Regional Partnership Board via the Welsh Government’s Integrated Care Fund and Housing with Care Fund. The new design aims to support familiarity for people with dementia – a sense of being at home. Front doors open directly into the home where people and the life of the home would be more familiar than a reception desk and offices. The development of the new home sits alongside a new approach to staffing that aims to ensure inclusion for the residents in all aspects of daily living. Monmouthshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Social Care, Safeguarding and Accessible Health Cllr. Ian Chandler said: "Severn View Park will allow Monmouthshire County Council to provide the best possible care for people with dementia. The innovative design and staffing structure aim to ensure inclusion for the residents in all aspects of daily life. Thank you to all our partners for supporting us in developing this new care home. We are committed to providing the best possible care to the most vulnerable residents and the opening of this new care home will allow people in Monmouthshire to receive the best care."
