Bridgwater Personal Care Home
Client: Winnipeg Regional Health Authority + Winnipeg Mennonite Senior's Care Inc.
Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba
In early 2014, MMP was awarded the proposal for a new 120-bed Personal Care Home Facility in Winnipeg, MB. The new facility, to be located in the new Bridgwater neighbourhood, will be operated by Winnipeg Mennonite Senior’s Care Inc., and funded through the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and Manitoba Health.
The design and operational intent of the new Bridgwater Personal Care Home project is to provide a new means of “home” care for residents. In designing a new personal care home model, MMP engaged The Center for Health Design in the United States. Their knowledge base and depth of research in innovative means of environmental design solutions are continuously improving the well being of both its residents and staff. With many successful facilities registered under “the Pebble Project,” Bridgwater Personal Care Home aims to provide this new ‘culture’ of health care with their help.
Currently, the Bridgwater Personal Care Home is in Tender phase, with an anticipated construction start of late Summer 2016. The home will be just over 113,000 square feet with six separate houses, split between two floors. Each home provides a full kitchen with dining and living spaces with in-house residential washer and dryers. Residential suites will include a bay window with built in millwork and roll in shower washrooms. Common areas and offices are treated with the appearance of a town centre where residents will exit their home environments and enter into the community supported environment.
