MND Scotland’s purpose-built accessible lodge gets the go-ahead.
MND Scotland is investing a quarter of a million pounds to build a brand new, bespoke accessible lodge, as a part of their accessible holiday service.
Construction of the state-of-the-art disabled-friendly lodge, which has been specially designed with MND in mind, will begin towards the end of 2018.
Craig Stockton, MND Scotland’s Chief Executive, said:
I’m delighted to reveal that MND Scotland is investing a quarter of a million pounds into our accessible holiday service for people affected by Motor Neurone Disease.
Due to the physical progression of MND, there are often barriers to families taking a break they may desperately need.
That’s why the new Clayton Lodge has been purpose designed to prioritise space and comfort and will be fitted with an array of helpful adaptations suitable for people with MND and other disabilities.
The new lodge, which will open in March 2019, will be set on the scenic Clayton Caravan Park, in the beautiful Eden Valley in North East Fife – just minutes from St Andrews and the Fife coast. And has the aim of giving families affected by MND, and other disabilities, a chance to take a break from their normal routine and enjoy a break together.
The lodge will also include a sofa bed and a second bedroom, with two sets of bunk beds, allowing the lodge to sleep seven in total.
The new lodge will include:
- Full wetroom with Clos-o-Mat Toilet and Tilt-In-Space shower chair
- Ceiling tracking hoist (bedroom to wetroom)
- Portable hoist with universal slings
- Fully adjustable bed with Medi-Pro mattress
- Second bathroom with over bath shower
- Riser Recliner chair
- Transit wheelchair
- Dishwasher, washer & dryer
- Blackout blinds in bedroom for those with a disability
- Equipment charging area
- Exterior wrap-around decking and access ramp
- Car parking
