Vardaga, KIAB and Svenska Vårdfastigheter construct new elder-care facility in Laholm

The Allarp area in Laholm will get a new elder-care facility, that will be ready to recieve residents during the latter part of 2018. The facility will be built by KIAB Fastigheter AB and Svenska Vårdfastigheter AB and will be run by Vardaga.

Villa Havsglimt (Seaview), which will be the name of the new facility, will comprise 54 apartments divided on three floors. The facility is intended both for people with dementia and for those with somatic diseases related to age. Villa Havsglimt will have a banquet hall, its own hairdresser, access to a garden and a park nearby. The location in Allarp is also close to the coast at Skummelövstrand. In addition, recruiting of co-workers will create 45 new jobs.

“We welcome you to the municipality of Laholm and to Allarp. This is much requested by the inhabitants and the location is just right”, says Elisabet Babic, Chair of the Municipality Executive Board and Mayor of Laholm.

“Allarp’s location in Laholm, near the border to the municipality of Båstad, gives us the possibility to offer apartments also to their and other nearby municipality inhabitants. With our new housing concept, we create a cozy environment, that is adapted especially to the needs and requests of elderly”, says Ulla Tansen, Business Area Manager for Vardaga.

Vardaga’s housing concept is focused on Nordic design and combines function and form to an interior that is adapted to the physical needs of the residents, and also cozy and homely. Colors and interior details are, based on research and evidence, adjusted to the ageing eye and to facilitate for people with dementia to orientate in the building.

“KIAB is thrilled and proud to develop and construct a modern elderly care facility for Vardaga in the development area of Allarp. We see a great potential in the area with its lovely location at Laholmsbukten between Laholm and Båstad. We believe that the vicinity to the nature and the sea will offer an amazing environment to live in”, says Henrik Söderberg, CEO of KIAB Fastigheter.
