Casal Nuovo, previously St. Joseph Convent, was built in the 1930s as a Borders’ School and a residence for the Sisters of St Joseph.

A beautiful property situated in the heart of the Paola community with its strategic location making it fully accessible to shops, public transport, and coffee shops amongst other things.

Casal Nuovo is a therapeutically enriching environment, where healing is engrained and its clients’ stability and well-being are nurtured. A warm, welcoming and familiar environment promotes a sense of calmness which is key for recovery as well as instrumental for safety.

A lot of emphasis was placed by the inter-disciplinary team in Casal Nuovo’s design. Apart from the functional element, we have also concentrated on the psychological element since this will impact on the expectations and perceptions clients will have of themselves, the team who works with them, and the services they are receiving.
