A few months ago, we gave you a look into the Household Model, one of many exciting changes coming to Fair Haven. Now, we’re excited to share an update on the progress that has been made! In addition to moving to the Household Model, Fair Haven has been hard at work constructing several new buildings that will house new assisted living residences, a dedicated short-term stay rehabilitation center, and a new skilled nursing building.
We’ve also been hard at work renovating and redesigning medical and dental offices, a fitness center, a bistro, an ice cream parlor, and many other amenities. The bistro and ice cream parlor are being added to our existing dining room, which will also gain a permanent decorative buffet for both cold and hot items. The renovations in our dining services areas will create a restaurant-style atmosphere.
Being a caregiver for an aging parent or loved one is a heavy responsibility, especially for those who are caring for children as well. Close to 10 million adult children older than 50 are currently caring for an aging parent, and 47 percent of those people are also raising children simultaneously.

In this blog, we’ll review some of the things you can expect to happen when your parent or loved one is admitted into a rehabilitation center by learning about the rehabilitation processes at Fair Haven.
