Basic Care Unit

Our Basic Care Unit consists of two pods with four households per pod. These are designed for residents that independently care for his/her own needs. Medical and nursing supervision is available. Meals are provided in a central dining room.

In May 2011 we moved into our new facility; a state of the art Veterans Home designed in the household/neighborhood concept. The new home focuses on individual households designed for 12-13 residents. The facility has 142 private rooms and 4 semi-private rooms, each room with its own private bathroom. The household centers around a large living room area, open kitchen and dining area. Each household looks and feels like a home, with few medical signposts. The Basic Care Unit has 98 beds.
