(AUG. 26, 2011) NAPOLEON CARE CENTER RECEIVES USDA FINANCING TO EXPAND

NAPOLEON, ND, Sep 26, 2011 -- State Director Jasper Schneider announced today that the Napoleon Care Center will receive $1.8 million in loans to remodel and expand the current nursing home facility.

“It is critical to re-invest in our long-term care facilities to provide residents with comfortable living options close to family and friends,” said Schneider. “This project will create rooms that give residents privacy as well as more space for visitors.”

The 44-bed nursing home was built in 1965 and is in need of upgrades and a new design concept. As the level of care for residents has changed, so has the demand for privacy and space. To meet those needs, the current single-story facility will be renovated and will include a 6,460 square foot addition. The upgrades will consist of window replacements, new flooring, new emergency generator, updated resident call and wondering system, new resident doors, and a remodeled activity room. The expansion will add eight new semi-private rooms while eight private rooms will be created in the current building. The new construction will also expand the dining room, add a new bathing room facility, and create more administrative space.

“Napoleon Care Center is fortunate to obtain funding through USDA Rural Development so our construction project can proceed as planned,” said Richard Regner, Napoleon Care Center Administrator. “These funds allow rural communities to grow and provide employment for the citizens who live there.  We are excited to get the project started so we can better accommodate the needs of our current and future residents.”

The project is expected to begin in spring 2012 with the total project cost estimated at $2,078,004. USDA Rural Development financed a $1,385,239 direct loan and a $500,000 guaranteed loan through the First Community Credit Union in Jamestown. The remaining funds will be provided by the Care Center through operational funds and fundraising activities.
