USDA Rural Development Acting Area Director Leann Gleason today announced three Community Facilities Loans totaling $12,000,000 to the Adair County Nursing Home District. The funds are being used to construct a new nursing home facility which with replace their current 50-year-old building.
“Working with the Adair County Nursing Home District has been a great experience. After realizing the need for a new building, they took proactive steps to seek the resources necessary to make this happen,” said Gleason. “This new nursing home facility will provide a more pleasant living experience to the residents as they continue to receive exceptional care. Rural Development is proud to be a partner in seeing this new facility come to fruition.”
The Adair County Nursing Home District has been operating out of their current building, Twin Pines Adult Care Center, for almost 50 years. After much thought and consideration, instead of renovating their current facility, they decided to move forward with an entirely new facility at a new location.
The new one-story 45,000 square foot building will offer the modern concept of ‘neighborhoods’ for the residents giving a more home-like experience. The 90-bed facility will also have a unique rehab environment for inpatient and outpatient use. The estimated length of time for construction is 18 months.
