Enriching the lives of seniors

Renovating for the Future

Long-planned renovations at Fahrney Keedy Senior Living Facility are all but complete, with just a few finishing touches remaining. “The facility recently underwent an extensive renovation that began in Sept. 2016. The renovations were designed to provide comfort, safety and a home-like atmosphere for our residents,” said Steve Coetzee, President/CEO at Fahrney Keedy. The 101-bed facility, located along Mapleville Road in Boonsboro, provides long-term skilled nursing care and short-term rehabilitation to area residents. Fahrney Keedy also boast 39 independent living cottages and 24 apartments, and 32 rooms of assisted living. While several additions have been added to the core of the facility, which was built in 1953, this was the first full-scale renovation to the facility. “This is the first total renovation of all common areas. We wanted to modernize the building,” said Cassandra Weaver, Executive Director at Fahrney Keedy. All of the common areas were fully renovated, including new furnishings, flooring, ceilings, window treatments and artwork. “The newly renovated shower rooms, lounge areas, dining room and lobby add additional comfort and beauty to the facility,” Coetzee said. Weaver said feedback on the project has been positive. “Families love it. They’re very pleased,” she said. “It still has the ‘homey’ feel, yet it now has a more elegant touch. It makes the residents’ living environment much more pleasant.” The final phase of the renovation, widening the doorways of 20 rooms that are part of the original facility, is currently underway. “Family and visitors are very impressed with the designs and amenities that were a part of this project. We are always receiving many positive comments on the overall appearance and comfort of the facility,” Coetzee said.
