A new 'lifestyle concept' senior care campus in Gallatin, Tenn., was designed to accommodate people as life stages take them from assisted living to other, more specialized living facilities, according to an article on the Tennessean website.
NHC Place, Sumner, with its 172 beds. There are 90 beds in the skilled nursing wing. Of the 82 assisted living beds, 22 are for assisted living. The others are for seniors who are independent but want, or need, extra support and smaller living accommodations, the article said.
The entrance to the multi-wing facility is like a hotel with high ceilings and plush furnishings. There is technology embedded in almost every corner of the facility.
The memory care wing is carpeted with a low-key design to reduce stimulants. If a resident pulls an alarm for help then staff immediately get a text message. The hallways are shorter than many healthcare facilities, to make residents more comfortable but to make sure nurses and caretakers have everything they need within easy access.
