Description: The proposed plan takes into account the reconstruction of the existing four-storey property in Vinohradská Street, Prague.

In addition, a new three-storey accommodation wing is to be erected adjoining the present building, the site of which will be in a previously undeveloped part of the garden. Furthermore, a reception area and all necessary buried services will be put in place.

The care centre will provide residential accommodation for 60 people in 44 single and double rooms, including 15 immobile residents. The establishment will also be a day centre for external users providing food, physiotherapy, and other services.

The local kitchen will be able to serve 250 main meals per day, and social workers will distribute approximately 170 of them in a meals-on-wheels basis to older people in the catchment area. The Královské Vinohrady Teaching Hospital is to provide for those with special dietary needs. At request of the owner, the central kitchen will follow kosher guidelines, requiring meat and milk to be rigorously separated.

The entire care centre premises will feature disabled access so that the individuals can get around comfortably and without difficulty. Up to fifty employees will be on hand to provide care for the comfort and convenience of users during the day.
