Stones River Manor Skilled Nursing Care Unit & Memory Care Unit

Residents have occupied Stones River Manor’s new Skilled Nursing Care Unit and Memory Care Unit, located in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Stones River Manor is an independent faith-based, not-for-profit senior living community, that offers independent living apartments, stepped-care assisted living, memory care, adult day care, respite care, physician and clinic services, and complete nursing and therapy services.

This Design-Build contract included a 31,900 square-foot, one-story addition that contains a 30-bed skilled nursing care unit with private and semi-private rooms, a 24-bed memory care unit with private rooms, a physical therapy department, administrative and support spaces including various offices, two new dining halls, a beauty salon and new library.

A covered drop-off area portico was incorporated on the southeast corner of the addition as well as exterior common areas including a lavish gated courtyard with sidewalks, patios and a beautiful, tiered water feature. Additionally, sunrooms can now be accessed from both the Skilled Nursing Unit and Memory Care Unit and overlook this newly landscaped courtyard. The finishes (custom designed cabinetry, carefully selected wallpaper/paint, flooring, landscaping, etc.) were all designed to create a family atmosphere for residents.

Many of the upgrades within this project were focused on several of the same energy-efficiencies associated with the LEED® certification process. Exterior walls featuring 2x6 studs - an upgrade from 2x4 studs - increased wall thickness and will allow the opportunity for added insulation. High-efficiency HVAC units and spray foam insulated walls at the exterior will also further boost the addition’s energy efficiency.

“This Advanced Care Center is the culmination of many years of planning and preparation,” said Stones River Manor CEO, Kirkland A.Mason.

“The addition of skilled nursing and rehabilitation services will complete the continuum of care for our seniors and provide them with a Christian home they will never have to leave, regardless of the level of care they may require. Words can’t express the sense of comfort and security this gives to our residents.”

This project was J&S Construction’s second expansion project with Stones River Manor, the first being a $1.2 million, LEED Gold addition completed in December 2011.
