SWBR Architects completed programming through construction administration services of a 117-bed Skilled Nursing Facility for Cattaraugus County. This new facility replaced the existing building on the same site.
A contextual residential environment has been created in both appearance and function. Residential scale at the living areas provides departure from the institutional arena. Shorter travel distances encourage greater resident mobility and decreased reliance on nursing aides. The new facility provides a greater sense of resident personal space and control, with a decreased emphasis on sacred “staff territory.” The physical layout promotes staff cross training and staff empowerment.
