Sam L. Cohen Households

Sam L. Cohen Households: Under Construction

Completed in late 2020, The Cedars is constructing the Sam L. Cohen Households which will include two Skilled Nursing Households and one Memory Care Assisted Living Household.

The Household Model of Senior Living
The visionary and person-centered Household Model is earning praise across the country and fast becoming the best practice for an enlightened approach to care. At its core is a home environment that begins with a front door with a doorbell and features private bedrooms and bathrooms, a full kitchen that is open 24 hours a day, a living room, dining room, den, sun room, outside garden and other community spaces filled with natural light. In addition to environmental changes, the transformation to the Household Model requires a vitally important culture change process for the entire staff that provides opportunities for continuous learning, creates blended workers, and completes the transition from the institutional model to a person-centered model of care.

Creating Home
The Household Model features a home environment where residents have choices, including when to wake up, what to eat, and how to spend each day, just like we do at home. It’s a model we believe will not only help meet and exceed the expectations of our older adult population but will also be a shining example to our entire industry and will shape the way forward for the improvement of senior healthcare across the nation.
