The Finger Lakes VA Health Care System at Bath is having a grand opening for the new $ 7-million Community Living Neighborhood (CLN) renovation project for Veterans living in the Greater Rochester Area and Southern Tier from noon to 3 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7.
The new Community Living Neighborhood provides residents a single bedroom with a personal bathroom and furnished with a desk, dresser and flat screen television mounted to the wall.
Bedrooms have large picture windows and each room is equipped with an integrated lift system which can move the resident from the bed to the bathroom. The Neighborhood has larger hallways and doorways to better accommodate wheelchairs in addition to providing more copious lighting. There are no static nursing stations allowing nurses to work closer and better mingle with residents.
The Neighborhood’s resident living areas are designed using Greek Revival and Queen Anne period color pallets, moldings, and furnishings – which now gives a home furnished look and feel to it.
