This two-story addition, housing 22 residents, is an innovative step for nursing homes, as it creates a living experience that closely duplicates the level of independence and comfort the elderly have always enjoyed in their own personal residences.
The Design Build team assessed the needed design and construction components. The interior decorating added the final touches to create the warm atmosphere of “being home” with contemporary wall and floor coverings and a beautiful flow of continuity in the color and design from room to room.
Each floor of the addition includes home-like amenities such as a large open country kitchen and dining area, a fireplace and TV center with comfortable sofas and easy chairs, quiet areas to read or converse, and laundry rooms that include front load washers and dryers for easy use. These areas are available for use by the residents at whatever level of involvement they desire.
