Norlit has built an EHPAD retirement home with 80 beds and six dayrooms. Developed by the property developer Nacarat, this new EHPAD has been built as a result of the town of Lestrem’s determination to establish a centre of excellence in terms of welcoming retired people in the heart of Flanders. The Antoine de Saint Exupéry Residence replaces the former Saint Joseph care home located in Lestrem. This new facility has been modelled on a hotel: each bedroom becomes a private, customisable space that can be accessed only by using a smart badge. Small common areas are spread out over the residence for users to entertain family and friends. Pushing the concept to the limits, the teams of carers have been trained in the hotel skills.
