The Old Vicarage, Leigh

Both proprietor Annie Sinnott MBE and the Old Vicarage Care Home have a wealth of awards for their commitment to care of the elderly to back-up their reputation as one of the leading care homes in Dorset.

DKA designed a scheme to provide the former Victorian vicarage with 20 additional bedrooms, extra communal areas and the reorganisation and improvement of some of the existing facilities.

The first phase of these proposals included the provision of 7 additional en-suite bedrooms, enlarged and refurbished communal rooms, a new commercial standard kitchen and the rationalisation of circulation within the existing building. The introduction of large areas of glazing in the refurbished communal rooms, combined with the new up-to date facilities, has given the home a fresh, light and airy feel which is appreciated by residents, their visitors as well as the staff.
