Seniors make nursing home wishes known

Viola Jones, who visits her 82-year-old husband at Glendale Home, said that she has been overwhelmingly happy with the facility and cannot wait to see how it can improve.

"I hope the location stays because for me it is accessible, and I thank God that I can visit often," said Jones.

Residents also requested additional landscaping, such as shrubs and more flowers. Families called for community spaces inside and outside the home where family members can congregate, particularly on holidays when residents have multiple visitors.

The home was constructed in 1936 and is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility that offers long-term care and short-term rehabilitation services.

Services at the home are catered to meet a wide variety of medical needs, different spiritual backgrounds, physical and occupational therapy as well as counseling for families. County officials will begin to review plans in the coming weeks.""
