Award winning dementia friendly landscape which promotes independence

The Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre in Hull is a totally different way of caring for frail, older patients. The first of its type in the UK, the centre provides holistic out of hospital care allowing patients to see a multi-disciplinary team and have diagnostic tests done all in one building; reducing unnecessary hospital admissions and enabling residents to keep fit, healthy and living independently in their own homes. The colourful low-rise building, designed by healthcare experts Medical Architecture, is immediately welcoming and the non-institutional character of the design with views of gardens and use of daylight reduces patient anxiety.
