Project Description

Lutheran Services Carolinas – Trinity Ridge Skilled Nursing

Hickory, NC
Lutheran Services Carolinas has led the culture change revolution by developing communities where elders enjoy living and employees enjoy working. Culture change describes the movement away from medical, hospital-like model of care and emphasizes the “home” in nursing home. This 120-bed skilled nursing facility is organized into four neighborhoods, each with its own kitchen, dining room, living room, and children’s play area. These neighborhoods are connected by a central area which offers a chapel, therapy gym, salon, and auditorium. Each neighborhood has an outdoor courtyard area with a fountain and seating areas. There is also an outdoor playground for visiting children.
