Cedar Cliff Nursing Home


Cedar Cliff was opened in 1929 as a tuberculosis sanitarium.

In Two Thousand & Nine Construction of the new wing at the county nursing home is now finished and awaiting final safety inspection by the state. Should the building pass the inspection, residents are expected to begin moving into the wing within four to six weeks.

The new facility, which has been under construction for three years, is meant to replace two Depression-era buildings that are overcrowded, dank, and cheerless. The goal has been to bring all of 342 current residents under one roof and to create enough space so that the Nursing Home can expand the number of beds to 406.

 Cedar Cliff provides both long-term and short-term care for both the indigent elderly and people with a variety of disabilities, including Multiple Sclerosis.

In the old buildings, some residents are currently living four to a room and sharing community bathrooms that are not accessible to the handicapped; such residents must be assisted onto toilets. The dining room is a cramped, drab place, with room for about a half-dozen card tables with metal folding chairs.
By contrast, the residence rooms in the new wing are bright and pastel-colored and will be occupied by no more than two people per room. Each room has its own wheelchair-accessible bathroom and the beds are separated by a wall, which allows a resident to control the temperature on their side of the room. The dining room is now a big, wide-open space that invites residents to congregate.

As for the Old Building, The Fate is Unknown.

  1. What a waste of a building. Some renovation work, as well as plumbing services melbourne, and this place would still be very much usable.

  2. If that house will ever be renovated, I would suggest to install a kitchen glass splashbacks. It can add some good design in the kitchen.

  3. It will be too exhausting for me to clean that nursing home alone. I hope that the nursing home will be restored soon.

  4. The place looks creepy, if you ask me. Together with the restoration of the physical appearance, the electric system should also be checked too, and the fuses, wires and switches should be replaced to avoid any fires. It would be better if they could use high quality electronic components for that.
