This facility is a replacement skilled nursing facility for Grace Lutheran Foundation. It consists of a 48-bed Short-Term Care Rehabilitation household and a 50-bed Long-Term Care Skilled Nursing Facility. Each household is connected to a commons area pod where there are shared services and activities that support the wellness, spiritual, entertainment and social needs of the community. Orientating each household’s entrance to different streets facilitated the distinction of separate short-term and long-term care functions. Resident center care is supported with all activities of daily living provided in each household space.

Highlights of the project:

  • Resident-centered programming design featuring separate short-term care and long-term care skilled nursing neighborhoods
  • State-of-the-art therapy, wellness and rehabilitation suite
  • Commons area featuring bistro, community gathering, education center, chapel, and gift and salon services
  • Varying colors, building materials and scale of the building respond to the residential qualities of the neighborhood setting
  • Formal and informal dining areas with full kitchen service that supports resident choice and flexibility

“Community Living Solutions take the hassle out of building! Terry and his team guide you through the construction process and produce a beautiful building with features that you did not know you needed.”
– Mike Christensen, CEO, Grace Lutheran Communities
