Katrinebjerg Rest Home

In Denmark it is rather common that people live their last time in a rest home. It used to be a place where you could go just because you had become of high age and maybe needed a bit of help in daily life. But the number of elders is growing here like everywhere else and nowadays you have to be really weak in order to get a room. Very often the residents are suffering from dementia and for those who doesn´t and maybe those who does? it can be quite lonely and depressing to live surrounded by weakness, decease and  life fading out and a staff that is overworked and not very well taken care of.
So I decided to take part in the February challenge on my favorite danish site:
The challenge was: Build a rest home for 4 singles and 2 couples and a butler. There were certain other demands and I tried to fulfill it all. Fortunately I didn´t have to worry about real-life-budgets :-)
Here is Katrinebjerg Rest Home:
