This project was designed to bring the Home up to ADA standards and NYS Code. The design proposed to eliminate the 21 4-bed Wards, to create adequate space for resident toilet rooms, create (3) 44-bed and (2) 43-bed Nursing Units, for a total of 218 beds.
Additions to the first and second floors have been added at the east and west ends of the facility, as well as the front entrance area. Existing interior spaces have been remodeled to create single and double bed resident rooms. Existing masonry window openings have been retained in an effort to control costs, resulting in rooms of varying sizes, but all are of adequate space for resident care. Likewise, private bathrooms of varying sizes and shapes to meet A.D.A. standards are provided in each resident room. New and remodeled spaces have been stacked, to achieve plumbing economies where possible.
