“One of the keys to success in this new model is having a structure that meets the demands of the skilled nursing setting and complies with all the regulations that govern this environment, but still present in a very residential, non-institutional manner.  The fact that Horst Construction was willing to take the time to participate in the educational process around this model of care was critical to its positive outcome.  You not only built a great building, but your team exhibited an understanding of the issues and a command of the critical thinking processes necessary to identify the “little things” that would make the building more functional, more homelike, and safer for the residents who would eventually reside there.”

Garden Spot Village created home-like settings in their Household Expansion project to encourage seniors to participate in their life even in the nursing care area of the community.  Features include a “front door” in keeping with the home theme, and a family-style kitchen where something is always baking.  Nursing stations are disguised as office space, storage for the service carts and clean, bright hallways with private entrances to resident rooms.
