Vardaga and Carlsson & Åqvist to build new nursing home for elderly in Örebro

Vardaga will now have its first nursing home for elderly in Örebro. Villa Väster Park will comprise 80 apartments by the old regiment area, central and close to good transportation.

The building will be constructed by local property developer AB Carlsson & Åqvist, as a five storey building, including attic. Vardaga will rent half of the ground floor for common functions and four floors with 20 apartments each.

Villa Väster Park is expected to be opened in October 2020 and will have an orientation towards gardening and cultivation. This is possible due to a large garden of over 1 000 sqm. including a greenhouse and the home’s spacious balconies.

The home will be furnished according to Vardaga’s award-winning residential concept. Interiors will combine function with Nordic design to create a warm, homely and functional living environment. Both colours and fixtures are adapted for the ageing eye – based on research and evidence-based practice – and are designed to facilitate wayfinding for people with dementia.

“We look forward to be able to offer our first nursing home for elderly in Örebro. It will be a modern and well-planned home with a pleasant environment in a good location”, says Vardaga’s Regional Manger Gertrud Öjetoft.

“We are happy and proud to build a new and modern nursing home for elderly in Örebro together with Vardaga. Through this construction, we begin the development of the popular residential area Väster Park, and we are planning further housing in the area in the future”, says Anders Åqvist, who represents Carlsson & Åqvist Fastighetsförvaltning in the project.
