24 bed intermediate care facility
Designed to meet the specific needs of residents with Alzheimer’s, this project’s goals were to assure safety and security for residents, support functional abilities, assist in wayfinding, prompt memory, support independence and facilitate social interactions while maintaining privacy. Michael Shilale created a building that features eight single bedrooms each with two windows, four bathrooms, and large window filled common spaces including two lounges, a dining room and recreational day room.
Client: Camp Venture Inc. Location: Nanuet, New York Size: 5,000 sf Cost: $600,000 The new addition harmonizes well with the existing building and will make it easier for Camp Venture to continue giving quality care to those in need. The addition of the Alzheimer’s Unit will not only benefit the residents under their immediate care and also benefit the future generations of people with special needs who this facility may serve.
