Argel Flexible Care Development

WYG

WYG were appointed by Family Housing Association (Wales), in partnership with Carmarthenshire County Council and Carmarthenshire Local Health Board, as Architect and Landscape Architect for two ‘flexible care’ developments, the first being for the local community at Johnstown, Carmarthen. The design, which is an evolution of the retirement village model initiated at Hazel Court, Swansea, is for the provision of fifty extra-care flats and eleven single-bedroom dementia extra-care flats.

Each flat has been designed to Lifetime Homes, Secured by Design and the Welsh Government’s Welsh Housing Quality Standards and Development Quality Requirements.

The facility also provides care support, day-care facilities for up to twenty-five people and ancillary accommodation, all to encourage social interaction and a positive outlook, while providing security, comfort and support to the occupants.
