CREATIVE NAME SOUGHT FOR NEW DEMENTIA HOUSING SCHEME

31 March 2017

Clanmil Housing and Belfast Health and Social Care Trust are calling for local inspiration in naming a new supported housing development for older people living with dementia.
Work is well underway on the construction of the new scheme on the site of the former Grovetree House residential home on Cullingtree Road, just off the Grosvenor Road.

The project is a partnership between Clanmil Housing and the Belfast Trust and will provide 30 modern, high quality self-contained flats for people living with dementia, along with 24 hour care and support within their home.
 
Clanmil and the Trust are approaching pupils at the nearby St Joseph’s Primary School and members of the West Belfast 50+ Forum in search of an imaginative name that reflects the area’s history, some interesting aspect of the local neighbourhood or the type of service and support provided at the new facility.


Artist’s impression of the new scheme
 
Suggestions will be judged by a panel made up of representatives from Clanmil, the Trust, the building contractor and the architect and there will be prizes for the winning name and two runners up.
 
The successful entry will be used to name the new scheme when construction is completed in the Autumn.
 
Colette Moore, Clanmil’s Group Director of Housing explained;
“We are very excited to be working with the Trust to deliver this new supported housing scheme and who better to name it than people who live in the surrounding area.
 
“The new scheme will help people with dementia continue to lead full, active and meaningful lives within the community and we’re hoping for a good mix of creative ideas for names that reflect this or indeed some interesting aspect of its location.  We’re open to suggestions.  The more imaginative the better! ”
