Lambeth Community Care Centre
The Lambeth Community Care Centre was an innovator in its mission to provide medical treatment to patients in a home style environment. It was found that this style of care regime was highly effective both in terms of the patients’ health and the cost of care giving.
It has a day unit at street level with physiotherapy, dentistry, chiropody and speech therapy as well as spaces for eating and sitting.
Upstairs, bedrooms for 20 (4 fours and 4 singles) with a sitting room and a staff room open out onto a south-facing terrace overlooking the landscaped gardens.
The main stair is placed in the conservatory which links the two floors. This ‘extra’ space has become the most popular place for patients to connect with nature while feeling protected.
