Newton Village kicks off capital campaign for new skilled care unit
Jasper County has a higher percentage of residents over age 65 than the statewide average. With that in mind, Elim Care, the parent company of Newton Village, has given permission for the facility to embark on a major new addition.
Currently, Newton Village has 50 independent apartments, 35 assisted living apartments and nine memory care apartments, home to more than 100 older adults. However, skilled care has been one level of service missing from Newton Village. Often, a time of recuperation or therapy is needed by the residents. Now, with the new addition, that recuperation can take place in an environment the residents already call home.
Gary Shebeck, Newton Village administrator, said the new, 20,000 square foot wing will add 24 skilled beds, 20 private beds, in a state-of-the-art facility, featuring a shower in each room, a data center and Wi-Fi. A physical therapy department and a spa will be included, as well as an activity center/chapel. A double-sided fireplace in the dining room will enhance the vaulted ceilings, and a patio off the east side of the dining area will add a warm and inviting atmosphere.
