The Campaign for Southminster

Bringing Great Changes to the Future of Health Care with a Small House Approach

Today our plans for creating the most resident-centered community in the Carolinas include replacing our existing health center with an architecturally vibrant new care community. It will provide residents who need nursing, assisted living or hospice care with a homelike setting, innovative design and a person-centered approach to care. Residents will enjoy open and inviting small neighborhoods with engaging activity areas designed to encourage socialization and participation for those facing health challenges. The new design will ensure that residents and families always remain central to decision-making regarding their care.

Please Give Today

Your gift to Southminster’s campaign will touch the lives of countless residents, staff, and families and will inspire the giving of others. Your financial support of this new generation of holistic living will help ensure the health of your loved ones, your community, and future generations. On a larger scale, your commitment will help Charlotte remain at the forefront of life-plan care.

THE New HEALTH CENTER

“WE’RE BEING INTENTIONAL IN CREATING SPACES THAT LOOK LIKE HOME, FUNCTION LIKE HOME. WHERE MEALS ARE SHARED TOGETHER, THERE IS A FREEDOM OF SPACE, FREEDOM OF PRIVACY AND SELF- DETERMINATION.”
- MARY COOPER, R.N. SOUTHMINSTER HEALTH & WELLNESS DIRECTOR

A Coming of Age for the Care Neighborhood Concept

Today our plans for creating the most resident centered community in the Carolinas include replacing our existing health center with an architecturally vibrant new care community. It will provide residents who need nursing, assisted living or hospice care with a homelike setting, innovative design and a personcentered approach to care. Residents will enjoy open and inviting small neighborhoods with engaging activity areas designed to encourage socialization and participation even for those facing health challenges. The new design will ensure that residents and families always remain central to decision-making regarding their care.

Impacting Care for Generations to Come

Southminster’s Board of Directors, together with residents and staff, have approved a state-ofthe-art design to continue to deliver exceptional care for generations to come. Our innovative, connected plan allows loved ones to stay seamlessly linked under one roof, while also creating common spaces with new opportunities for support and interaction. The new Health Center is scheduled for completion in 2020 and will reinvent the future of retirement living and care. It will include the following areas of enhancement and amenities.

"THROUGHOUT THE INDUSTRY, SOUTHMINSTER IS CONSIDERED AN EARLY ADOPTER OF THE PERSON- CENTERED, SMALLHOUSE MODEL OF CARE. IN THE LAST 5 YEARS LESS THAN 5% OF NEW CONSTRUCTION INCLUDED THIS TYPE OF
CUTTING-EDGE DESIGN."
- JUDE RABIG, NATIONALLY
