Le Mars nursing home completes multi-million dollar renovation
A three year, a multi-million dollar nursing home renovation in Le Mars, Iowa is finally complete.
The 65 residents at the Good Samaritan Society nursing home are enjoying their new "neighborhood" setting.
Parts of the 55-year old building were remodeled into separate living areas with shared living rooms and kitchenettes.
It's part of the "neighborhood concept" which a spokesperson says is new to nursing home planning.
"Our building was transformed from a traditional style nursing home where you have a lot of rooms that were not private and maybe are sharing a bathroom and such, that we've made it into a more private areas too, and I would say the most unique part too is being able to dine in those areas and not have to travel as far to a main dining room" Amy Harnack, Good Samaritan Marketing Development Director said.
No new rooms were added, instead rooms were expanded to give residents more privacy. There are also two courtyards, a chapel, and a new community room.
