Ocura Herk-de-Stad, residential care centre with a view
“The new Ocura facility focuses on small scale and homeliness. Bouwen aan de Zorg met Dave Roosen, campus director of the Ocura Residential Care Centre and archipelago.
“In April 2019, the brand new residential care centre Ocura opened with room for 76 elderly people who are very dependent on care. The warm, homely atmosphere stands out when you enter, as do the natural materials, light colours and large windows. The icing on the cake for the residents and staff are the fantastic views: stately chestnut trees, a patio and the Ursuline Monastery of Herk-de-Stad.”
“Full house at Ocura in Herk-de-Stad. There are 66 elderly people living permanently in the facility, as well as ten temporary residents who stay here for respite care to relieve their carers. On 18 November, the day centre was opened to a further fifteen guests.Unlike most facilities, Ocura works in small groups.
Homeliness was therefore one of their most important conditions for the new residential care centre.”
Dave Roosen, campus director of the Ocura Residential Care Centre: “Classic nursing homes usually all have rooms that open onto long corridors, little communal space and one large dining area. We consciously choose for small scale, with groups of twelve people.”
