United Methodist Retirement Community - Kresge Skilled Nursing Expansion and Renovation


The Kresge Skilled Nursing facility currently serves 86 residents in semi-private rooms.  Residents are partially segregated by short term / long term.  These two facts drove much of the project mission.  Along with a new entry sequence, improved staff and visitor experience, the goals were defined and the new face of the Chelsea Retirement Campus was formed.  The addition and renovation included 2-9- new resident units and fully separates short term (first floor) and long term care (second floor).  Three new dining experiences (including a full service bakery) and numerous new common areas give residents several dining experiences and choices.  The addition also creates a secure outdoor space featuring patio dining, lounge space, healing garden and walking paths.  A tremendous amount of effort has been placed in circulation and events along the path.
