BEAVERCREEK — ACrestview Manor is now Village at the Greene — an assisted living and nursing home with a brand- new look.

Village at the Greene underwent a $15 million renovation where the facility was rebuilt to offer a state-of-the-art short-term rehabilitation center and long-term senior care facility. Phase one has completed. Phase two is expected to be completed next year.

“We are the newest thing in the community now,” Village at the Greene’s Business Development Coordinator Jeff Schairbaum said. “It’s truly a neighborhood setting and that’s where the word ‘village’ came from and with the new setting we are set up as little villages.”

The current residents were moved into Village at the Greene in August, just before the old facility was torn down to make room for phase two.

Phase one holds 80 beds, but after phase two, the facility will hold 102. With the new neighborhood concept, the facility steps away from the “hospital feel” to a “home” feel. Instead of having meals served to the rooms, the residents that are able meet in a dining room and have meals on regular dinnerware and family rooms that are designed for socializing and activity centers. The idea is to get the residents, whether short-term rehabilitation stays or long-term stay residents to feel at home and get out of their rooms and enjoy the facility.

“We are devoted to providing quality care and serving the community. Our interdisciplinary team is dedicated to a family culture of respect and dignity, high quality post-acute nursing and rehabilitation,” Village at the Greene Administrator Sarah Landis said.

The activity rooms feature large flat screen televisions, gas fireplaces, new color schemes to give a homey feel, companion suites with full-size closets and shared bathroom facilities with a walk-in shower. It offers outdoor patios that are safe and secure, open spaces for socializing and group activities. The facility also offers wireless internet, religious choices, cable television, flexible dining and all the amenities to help the resident maintain their regular daily routine prior to entering the facility.

“When we changed the name to Village Greene, our tag line was ‘we’re moving from good to great’ because we felt like we are very good right now but we know we can be better,” said Schairbaum. “Some people say, why are you using that tag line? We say because we’re honest. We are always striving to be the best.”

Phase two of the facility will offers a state-of-the-art dementia facility with a secured unit.
