Foyer Atert, De Park (CHNP)


The Centre Hospitalier Neuro-Psychiatrique (CHNP) was created by the Luxembourg State in 1855 as a "Hospice Central". Today, the CHNP is structured around 3 axes, each dedicated to a target population: clinical activities of psychiatric rehabilitation (Rehaklinik), care and support activities for the elderly (Pontalize) and care and socio-educational support activities for people with mental disabilities (De Park).


This new construction in Useldange, called "Foyer Atert", in reference to the nearby river, is a new offer of the De Park entity for people with mental disabilities. This new 3-storey U-shaped building has a total of 34 rooms, 8 of which are adapted for people with reduced mobility. All the rooms are located on the wings to the West-East while the common rooms are located on the South side in order to benefit from maximum sunlight. The ground floor is used for daytime activities in activity, occupational therapy, music and staff rooms. The two floors are dedicated to patients, with the living rooms located in the middle wing, adjacent to a kitchen area. In order to make it easier for patients to differentiate between them, the floors have their own colour, the ground floor is blue, the first floor is orange and the second floor is green. In addition, the circulation is grey and the floors of the activity rooms are green. The inner courtyard has a small terraced area with benches, the door is protected by a courtyard. Shrubs brighten up the place. Another terrace is located on the side of the west wing, in case patients would like to have their meals outdoors, as well as a terrace in the green patio.
