The new Health and
Rehabilitation Center at
Abernethy Laurels is the first
phase of a planned two-phase
nursing home bed replacement.
Abernethy Laurels was originally
constructed in the early 1970s
as a stand-alone, medical
model nursing home. Periodic
additions and renovations in the
years since have transformed the
original 120-acre campus into
a full service CCRC complete
with Community Center,

Independent Living apartments,
cottages, and Assisted Living
apartments. Replacement of
the original nursing home
(Healthcare Center) portion of
the community is the latest and
perhaps most complex step in
the transformation.
The project presented here
is Phase I of a two-phase
replacement of 174 licensed
nursing beds. Now completed,
Phase I includes replacing 96 of
the existing 174, primarily semiprivate units with a new, twostory health and rehabilitation
center organized into six,
16-resident unit households.
All new resident units are
private, single occupancy
rooms. Two first-floor
households are designated
for short stay or transitional
rehabilitation residents, two
second-floor households serve
memory care residents and
the remaining two households
accommodate long-term care
nursing residents.
Each household features
two clusters of eight resident
rooms connected by living,
kitchen/dining, and activity
areas. Residents' proximity
to the common areas within
their house encourages social
interaction and fellowship with
