The residents and staff of Parkview Village Christian Care Assisted and Independent Living of Odon have announced the completion of new additional facilities. Open house of the new facility will be Nov. 10, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Community is invited to attend the annual fish fry, silent auction and open house.
The new facilities include a new nondenominational chapel with cathedral ceilings, pulpit, piano, choir loft, large format projector screen and seating for 80 people. Also, a large sun room has been completed in the style of a ski lodge, with all glass exterior walls looking out onto the courtyard flowerbeds, activity areas and gazebo. The sun room includes lots of natural wood, game tables, reading areas, an outdoor barbecue area and an outdoor shuffleboard court.
The additional facilities also include a very large activity room equipped with a full residential-style kitchen and an overhead large format projector for movies and demonstrations. The new activity room will seat approximately 40 people at tables, or 80 people in chairs.
A physical therapy area has also been included, with space for a full range of treatment, a doctor’s examination room, and a toilet/shower room. The area has a separate outside entrance to the parking area for patients not living in the residence center.
The existing kitchen has been expanded to approximately four times its original size, with a substantial increase in the size of the cooking areas and working areas, and more freezers and coolers. There are also more staff facilities, a large food storage area, and larger laundry, dishwashing and receiving areas. A new facility maintenance storage and work area has also been included.
The original activity room adjacent to the large community room is being expanded to provide a larger community family dining room and meeting spaces. The new addition is designed to provide needed facilities for the original building and planned new future facilities.
The new facilities were built by Wagler and Sons Construction of Montgomery and designed by Battershell and Associates Architects of Danville, Indiana.
