The nursing home formerly owned by Prestige Care and Rehabilitation in Grandview is being converted into an assisted living center.
As of Friday, August 3, 2018
GRANDVIEW A nursing center on Hillcrest Road that has been vacant for nearly four years is getting a fresh outlook.
The City Council last month approved a re-zone for the facility once known as Grandview Health Care. It was Prestige Care and Rehabilitation when the doors were shuttered in late 2014.
LPI Holdings, LLC, and Ramandeep Malhi and Sukhjinder Kaur applied for the rezone of the facility at 912 Hillcrest Road.
Their intent is to transform the former nursing home into an assisted living center.
“I know a lot of people want loved ones close by,” Mayor Norm Childress said. “It’s great if we can provide that opportunity in Grandview.”
The facility had nearly 50 residents when it closed. It provided long-term care with skilled nursing staff.
An assisted living center consists of apartment-style living spaces, providing residents the ability to maintain their independence while also giving them access to medical professionals when necessary.
Childress said the Lower Valley needs housing from assisted living centers for older residents to low income housing.
“I think it’s terrific — this helps availability,” he said.
