Plans submitted for technology-enabled homes and care hub in Blantyre


The proposed campus style development centres on the former St Joseph’s Primary School site in Blantyre.Twenty of the planned homes would be technology-enabled to offer long-term supported accommodation to older people and to individuals with complex disabilities.If approved the Care Hub will provide South Lanarkshire residents with a dedicated intermediate care facility designed to support people to live in their own homes for longer as they grow older and care needs become more complex.Intermediate Care is short stay care designed to help people recover their health and return to their home after a period of ill health or a hospital stay.The new homes would each have dedicated parking and in addition the Care Hub would have extensive on-site parking as part of a campus style development.The plans also lay out community facing elements of the proposed Care Hub which would include a café, a technology area, meeting spaces and consultation/treatment rooms which would provide support for community based care.
