The next big nursing home in California
Surrounded by towering cliffs, the beach and an ocean, Surmont’s nursing home is a place to stay for the rest of your life.
A year ago, it was named one of America’s most innovative nursing homes by the Associated Press.
Now, the facility is a favorite of the Los Angeles City Council.
The city will soon have a new nursing home.
The Surmont facility was designed in the 1950s to house the elderly, who had no access to nursing homes.
The facility was built to house nursing home residents, and now that it is an aging facility, it will need to be redesigned to meet the needs of people with dementia, said Lori McDaniel, the Surmont executive director.
The design of the facility was so successful that it was chosen by the city in 2016 as one of the nation’s best nursing homes for seniors.
It has a large indoor pool, and it’s been designed to accommodate up to 10 patients per bed, she said.
McDaniel said that while Surmont has had its share of problems, the hospital was a model for other aging facilities, like the one that is now being built in San Antonio.
The new facility, the largest in the state, will have a large lobby, the newest floor plans, and more spacious living areas, McDaniel said.
“I think it will be great to have a place for seniors and families who live in that area,” she said, adding that the city has hired a firm to develop the design.
The Surmont design also incorporates a new roof that will allow for more shade.
It will be completed by June.
