Edmonton’s first residential community hospice: the Roozen Family Hospice Centre.
The Roozen Family Hospice Centre will be relaxed, comfortable, family-friendly, welcoming and in character with its beautiful residential neighbourhood.
The Roozen Family Hospice Centre will be a home away from home and non-institutional in character while offering safety, security and functionality for everyone.
Living spaces will allow for privacy and intimacy while also supporting family and group activities, spiritual and faith-based activities and quiet reflection.
The Roozen Family Hospice Centre design will enable activities and special celebrations that promote life meaning, end-of-life quality and personal legacy.
In providing respite to families, the Roozen Family Hospice Centre will enable multi-generational family participation in activities such as dining, visiting, reading, music, and activities of daily living.
The scale and layout of the Roozen Family Hospice Centre will contribute to a sense of spaciousness and openness while also enabling privacy and intimacy.
The building design will incorporate natural light and garden views.
As a hub of end-of-life information sharing, the building will be designed to accommodate a variety of educational and training activities.
