United Presbyterian Home’s plans for their Expansion of Quality First Services are well under way. This shows the front elevation of the two-story addition on to the South Hall of the current Health Center.

The Expansion of Quality First campaign includes a two-story building addition on to the south hall of the current Health Center. The addition will include 17 private rooms along with converting existing semi-private rooms to private rooms, the development of a dementia specific area and the expansion of our current wellness and fitness area to include a 12’ x 20’ warm water therapy pool.

First Floor Highlights:

The first floor of the new building will be a household for short-term stay such as respite, rehabilitation and hospice. This space will create 17 new private rooms for residents which allows for future conversion of existing spaces into mostly private resident rooms. A dementia-specific area will be created in the existing Health Center to create a safe, comfortable, optimal home for residents with these specific needs.

Neighborhoods define community. The design of resident and family areas will be created in a neighborhood or household concept. This concept encourages companionship and sociability among residents with a home-like, warm, person-centered environment and lifestyle. Residents have an increased ability to make their own choices and remain in control of their lives. Daily living activities, even as basic as dining options, can be more spontaneous, varied and readily available. Until recently, all the available space throughout the building has been utilized as well as possible. Now in order to continue the excellence and quality in services you’ve come to expect, to implement potential new ideas and to continue to lead the way, there is a need to create, add, renovate and expand.

First Floor Plan

Ground Floor Highlights:

The lower level of the addition will have first-class wellness, fitness and therapy facilities complete with an indoor walking track and an 8 -10 person therapy pool with locker room area. Best of all, these spaces and services will be opened not just to UP Home residents, but to all adults over the age of 55. The current mission of our Wellness and Fitness Department is to help residents with personal wellness, but the UP Home wants to extend that mission to the outlying community.

This project gives us the ability to fulfill our vision to maximize the quality of life for seniors in the community and continue Quality First services and care to the Washington community for another 68 years.

Young retirees envision a retirement filled with an active lifestyle to include fitness , a pool and therapy that will serve the greater community. For nearly 70 years the Home has been an important business to our community and this will position them very well for the future – keeping with their mission statement of maximizing the quality of life for seniors in the community.”
