Vliethoven provides care to people who have physical complaints or a psychogeriatric condition and who need additional support. At Vliethoven, the residents can live a full life.
The four newly built residential buildings for psychogeriatric clients was completed as part of the master plan that Wiegerinck drafted. The design provides space for 56 residents. The buildings have been positioned in such a way that together they form a new square: ‘t Loug, a name in Groningen for village center.
With a clear front and back part, each building has the hall- marks of a farm typical of the Oldambt area of Groningen. The front part is the entrance to the building. The back part includes one-person rooms with individual en-suite facilities. The rooms are close to a central living and dining room, which serves as the beating heart of the building. Some clients live here permanently and others only temporarily. The aim is to create a homely atmosphere. The living rooms contain the furniture and personal belongings of the clients. Pets have their own place too.
