Our most recently completed project is the East Longmeadow Skilled Nursing Facility. The program for this project is provided to by Berkshire Health Systems, and encompasses not only state of the art care facility but one that reflects their mission goals by providing Life Enrichment Programs and services to meet the needs of the frail elders in a home-like setting. They will be grouped in four separate population type which gives the care givers the opportunity to focus on a specific groups of individuals who have similar needs so they can provide a stated outcome.
This facility will have a number of key ingredients, to many to mention, however, the key elements are the focus on a high level of care which will be enhanced by the physical plan: each resident will have his own room with a private bath and shower; the room is located off a function and aesthetically pleasing corridor, the common areas have been designed to be free-flowing, without doors to impede progress, allowing for ease of access by residents with mobility issues. The facility has a circular flow which ease of access for the care givers, administrative staff and visitors. The courtyard has been designed to be therapeutic, aesthetically pleasing, provide area for outdoor activities, café and gazebo for social interaction and passive enjoyment. Berkshire Health Systems is also focused on a campus approach that will re-use the existing skilled care facility and converted to a Life Enrichment program for Memory Care once the Replacement Facility has been constructed and occupied.
Utilizing an existing facility is not only cost-effective but shortens the construction phase allowing this project to come online quicker. Since Berkshire Health System has completed a joint development with a partner who is designing and constructing a Medical Office Building, these two additional facilities will add another dimension for providing care for the geriatric populations that they serve, and it will become a community service for the towns of Longmeadow and East Longmeadow and beyond.
