Northridge Residence Survey:

As we continue to plan and prepare for the future of healthcare in our region, we are seeing significant and continuing changes in how senior care and services are made available. One of the key factors we face in preparing for the future of senior care is our infrastructure. Northridge Residence was a state of the art facility when it was built; however, it is almost 40 years old.

The appearance of the building looks in good shape as it has been cared for over the years. Behind the walls however, many of the building’s infrastructure (heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical, roofing, insulation, etc.) are at or past their useful lives so significant repairs and/or replacement needs are upon us.

As we looked into the building needs, we also looked at what changes are occurring in our region and at a national level. Expectations of senior care customers are changing, with greater expectations of more amenities and higher quality of care as well as how and where that care is given.

The purpose of this survey and the staff/community meetings is to get your input on what needs to be considered if we redesign the Northridge building to meet the expectations and needs of our community for the next 40 years.
