CMS Windows & Fife Council
Leading window and door designer, manufacturer and installer CMS Window Systems has completed a project with Fife Council to deliver high quality new homes for elderly residents in a pioneering ‘care village’ concept.
The development on Ostler’s Way, Kirkcaldy, forms part of an extensive initiative by Fife Council to create a supportive community for older people in the local area. In addition to a 60-bed care home, its residential facilities include a cluster of purpose-built bungalows for independent supported living. The 26 brand new bungalow residences are arranged around the main care village, giving occupants easy access to the site’s café and dementia garden. Each can house up to two residents, helping couples and individuals to retain their independence and sense of community while still receiving regular visits from carers and support staff.
