Mrs. Bush’s is Breaking Ground This FALL on a New Addition! The staff at Mrs. Bush’s is proud to announce that we are beginning a project that we started planning back in 2002 and set aside while we completed our South Annex Addition in 2014. Now, we are ready to start this new project, that may possibly be the last expansion to the Mrs. Bush’s Chestnut Ridge Facility. We recently received our building permit from Eldred Township and hope to begin site prep, excavation, and construction of the building soon.
Our expansion project will be a 10,000 sq. ft addition including 2 floors extending off the existing west wing of the West Annex. It will then extend south toward the mountain.
The main floor of the addition will consist of 10 additional personal care rooms. Each will be private with a full private bathroom. A salon & sunporch will also be included on the main floor.
The lower level will include 5 independent living suites for tenants that are independent with ADL’s and medications. There will be an elevator to access the upper level so they may participate in our social programs, utilize community areas and receive meals in the dining room. The lower level will also include a common laundry room and a community room which may be utilized for various programs, meetings or possibly as an exercise/therapy area.
Many years and long hours have been poured into the planning of these designs. The goal of our project is to achieve an overall census which will generate budget growth needed to offer improved benefits and wages for employees without the need for dramatic rate increases.
