Did you know that the original nursing homes were designed after hospitals?
In the new Household Model design planned for the new health care center, there will be no more long lengthy hospital-like corridors, allowing little privacy for residents. The Person-Centered approach effect on a “nursing home” is to shape it into a personal community, a household, a neighborhood.
Cedarfield’s new health care center will have two households which allows for 20 residents in each household. Every resident will enjoy a spacious private bedroom and full bath, and each room will be situated off of the private living areas, just like home.
Each household will be designed with a fully functioning kitchen where residents can be involved with meal preparation if they choose. The beauty of having a kitchen within each household is that alternative food is accessible to residents 24 hours a day… and fridge raiding is encouraged! It’s easier to want to eat when you can have what you want, when you want it!
Spacious living rooms and dining rooms in each household will be designed for family gatherings or group activities for those who wish to participate. Easy access to outdoors will be a very important component to the new design, making it possible for residents to enjoy time outside on a regular basis.
