Lake County United Celebrates Construction on $30 Million 185-Bed Affordable Nursing Home

Groundbreaking for 185-Bed Affordable Housing Nursing Home in Lake County, IL
 
Eleven years ago, Lake County was positioning to close Winchester House, which would have left over 200 low-income seniors without an affordable place to live. On December 4th, at the official groundbreaking of a 185-unit affordable nursing home, County Board Chair Steve Carlson began his remarks with “This all began with a conversation with Lake County United.”
 
Over the years, Lake County United (LCU) continued to press to keep the nursing home open and affordable. Of the 185 beds, 65% are Medicaid and will include long-term nursing, memory care and short-term rehab services. The building of the facility is expected to be completed by mid-year in 2020. The old building will be torn down and made into a potential land site for more affordable housing.
