Non-Profit’s Plan for $70 Million CCRC in N.H. Moves Forward
A non-profit’s plan to build a new 222-unit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Durham, N.H., is steadily moving forward.
RiverWoods Group is planning to build the CCRC on an 11-acre plot in the city, Foster’s Daily Democrat reported. As planned, the CCRC would have 24 skilled nursing units inside of a large building with several wings and courtyards. Local officials reached a key tax deal with Riverwoods in December.
Construction is expected to begin this summer and last about 18 months. The community could open in 2019 or 2020.
Greystone to Build $30 Million SNF in Florida
Greystone Healthcare Management is working to open a 180-bed skilled nursing facility (SNF) in Apopka, Fla.
The facility will have private and semi-private rooms, and offer both long-term care and short-term rehab, according to the Orlando Business Journal. The facility will also have therapy gyms, an occupational therapy suite, dining areas, and bistros.
Architectural Concepts Inc. is the project’s architect, and Donald W. McIntosh Associates Inc. is its civil engineer.
Drug Rehab Facility Proposed at Site of New Jersey Nursing Home
An affiliate of Recovery Centers of America (RCA) has proposed opening a drug treatment facility at the site of a long-term care home operated by Sayreville Nursing in Sayreville, N.J. If approved, the rehab facility would treat people addicted to various drugs — especially opioids, reported CentralJersey.com.
Some of the city’s residents objected to the idea, however, citing the lack of local nursing homes as an important factor in their protests. Residents also said they were concerned because the proposed rehab center would be located near an elementary school.
Local officials must still approve the drug treatment facility for the plans to move forward.
Illinois Nursing Home Plots Addition
A nursing home in DeKalb, Ill., has plans to upgrade its congested community.
The DeKalb County Rehab and Nursing Center is set to break ground on a new addition in August or September, the Daily Chronicle reported. The expansion is expected to create new hallways, which will lessen congestion caused by foot traffic at the SNF.
The project will also turn a central courtyard into a coffee shop for residents and their loved ones.
