HAMILTON TRACE

The project is the first phase of a new CCRC campus located in the Town of Fishers, Indiana. This first phase of the project is developed on an 11-acre site and includes 108 skilled nursing beds and 30 assisted living apartments. The nursing facility includes a 28-bed rehab unit and a 20-bed secure memory-care area. Private rooms with private baths are provided for 86 beds. Semi-private rooms include a full-height wall between beds. The assisted living accommodations include 24 one-bedroom apartments and 6 two-bedroom apartments. The design was conceived to facilitate person directed care.

It was important to CarDon to provide separation between the skilled nursing facilities and the assisted living apartments. A “main street” including a theater, multi-purpose activities space, beauty salon and private dining was incorporated between the two use groups. In addition, main entrances were planned on alternate building frontages. The creation of a homelike environment was also very important. Storage was designed throughout the facility to enable the staff to keep the corridors clear of equipment.
