New Community Living Center Groundbreaking

On May 27, 2021, VA Maine broke ground on the construction of our new Community Living Center (CLC) at the Togus VA Medical Center. This 24-bed Community Living Center facility will replace, Patriots Place, the current memory care unit on campus. The construction follows the small house concept and entails building two single-story homes with 12 private bedrooms, and outside access for residents in a secured and safe location.  

27 May 2021 CLC Groundbreaking

These homes take a different approach from the traditional nursing home.  They are modern, home-like buildings with beautifully landscaped surrounding grounds.  They feature private rooms and bathrooms, working kitchens as a focal point for social activity, large dining rooms and living rooms and consistent staff who administer individualized care, according to resident preferences.

This approach to care and living has been shown to improve the resident’s quality of life and improve clinical outcomes such as a reduction in infections, falls and improved sleep patterns. Improvements have been shown in communication with staff and Residents in the home-like environment.

Please check back periodically for updated photos and information as construction progresses. Please also take a moment to read the following letters from our Maine Congressional delegation who join us in celebrating this great undertaking.
