SCH proposed project geared toward AL center

SCH proposed project geared toward AL center

TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Architect Jeff Ahl, with arCuretecture, explains the most updated proposed project for the Sutton Community Home during a town hall meeting Wednesday, Jan. 29.

For the past four years, the Sutton Community Home Board has gone through several options for a new nursing home, but those options haven’t come without substantial costs.

Sutton Community Home’s building has exceeded its 50-year mark and doesn’t meet ADA regulations.

“The current building needs to go away,” Jeff Ahl, an architect with arCuretecture, said during a town hall meeting Jan. 29. “SCH’s building has reached the end of its life.”

He later commented on how well the SCH administration and staff continue to care for residents, despite the challenges the home presents.

“Janet [SCH administrator] has done an amazing job getting people in the nursing home,” he said, adding, “it’s a real challenging situation and I commend the staff for making it work.”
