Vardaga and Vectura will build new nursing home in Knivsta

A new nursing home in Knivsta is scheduled for completion by spring 2020. The home will be constructed by Vectura Fastigheter and operated by Vardaga.

Villa Ängby, the name of the facility, will comprise 56 apartments and cater to people with dementia or age-related illnesses. The home is expected to create about 50 new jobs.

– We are looking forward to opening Villa Ängby and being involved in the development of elderly care in Knivsta. Vardaga has extensive experience in dementia care, which means we can also accept younger care recipients with dementia and offer them quality care,” says Ulla Tansen, Business Area Manager, Vardaga.

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

– We are delighted to be involved in the realisation of this attractive facility in Knivsta together with Vardaga. This is our first joint project and we are looking forward to a successful partnership,” says Susanne Ekblom, CEO of Vectura Fastigheter.

– The Municipality of Knivsta is growing rapidly and there will be a need for expanded elderly care in the future. We think the area around Ängby is an ideal location. This initiative by Vardaga and Vectura is therefore very welcome and we are looking forward to the opening of Villa Ängby,” says Göran Nilsson (Swedish Moderate Party), Chairman of the Social Welfare Committee.
