The Sarah Community, a US-based service provider of long term care and retirement options for older adults, is set to begin work on new $17 million Anna House, a nursing home in Bridgeton, in the US state of Missouri. Located on the SSM DePaul Health Center campus in Bridgeton, the new facility reflects the movement for services to elders with an individualized care and neighbourhood concept, which include more privacy, better food services available, a living room area, actively participating in all decisions regarding care.
The updated design of the Anna House structure will positively enhance the continuum of care, connecting the Anna House skilled nursing home to the Veronica House assisted living apartments and Naomi House retirement apartments
St. Andrew’s Management Services along with architectural firm The Lawrence Group, Hercules Construction Management Company and BSI Constructors have been selected to build the new Anna House. Construction work on the new building is to commence in November 2011, and it will last about a year.
