From Design to Construction

Architectural and spatial design, the size of private and common spaces, and ensuring privacy are very important goals when building RHCFs or Clinics, because they must accommodate people who are not perfectly able and suffer from physical and mental problems that sometimes can be quite relevant.

The facilities that are developed and built by Rodevita usually have a capacity of 100-120 beds and are divided into different consistent units. The number of units and floors depends on regional legislation. Each unit might include only single rooms or 85% single rooms and 15% double rooms. The choice to include many single rooms is aimed at providing more privacy to guests who need to feel protected, safe, and not disturbed by other guests. In this way, guests can enjoy the same safety and tranquility they have at home, albeit relying on the surrounding highly specialized system. Double rooms, on the other hand, can be transformed, simply by rearranging the furniture, into rooms for married couples who, due to the lack of self-sufficiency of one or both spouses, are forced to move into a RHCF.

All rooms have private bathrooms and each unit includes areas where the services and utilities that are necessary for the unit’s operation are located. Rooms are stylish and are designed with all amenities: electronically adjustable beds, bedside table, table, chair, armchair, wardrobe, television, telephone, and emergency call devices. Furnishings and accessories are chosen to match the facility’s overall style.

Solutions that make a difference

Normally, each unit also includes several common areas dedicated to socialization and relaxation. Units also include a dining area with a small kitchen where hot beverages can be prepared. Outside each unit, a medical facility, a small gym, and a reception room for guests are also located. There is also a room for the coordination of health activities with a first aid cabinet, medication trolley, emergency trolley, medical records, and a control and surveillance station for the nursing staff.

Living in welcoming places

Usually, facilities have large windows with plenty of sun shining through, thus making rooms and lounges warmer. As a matter of fact, each area is designed also based on the appropriate sun exposure during daytime hours. Both in public spaces (living rooms, dining rooms, and gyms) and in private spaces (bedrooms) windows with outside views are essential both to improve guests’ psychological and physical well-being and to provide adequate natural ventilation.

Modernity and Innovation

Normally, at the entrance, there is a large hall where the reception, café bar, and central restaurant are located. There are large and elegant lounges and dining rooms to accommodate guests and encourage socialization. All facilities include multipurpose rooms that can be used for religious services, and an adequate number of gyms, depending on the type of facility and its capacity. Terraces, gardens, and recreational green spaces enable guests to enjoy the nice weather. Each facility has a large outdoor parking lot.

Usually, facilities are fully enclosed by a fence and with different entry points for the general public, emergency, and commercial vehicles.

All outdoor and indoor spaces are barrier-free to facilitate accessibility. Residential facilities and clinics are built according to the latest construction techniques and are rated at a high energy class to respect the environment. Facilities are designed and built with the latest technological devices in the field of home automation to promote people’s well-being.
