State of the art Radcliff Veterans Center to open in just weeks
The commissioner of the Kentucky Veterans Association says the Radcliff Veterans Center the Cadillac of nursing facilities.
HARDIN COUNTY, Ky (WDRB) -- The new Radcliff Veterans Center opens in just weeks.
The commissioner of the Kentucky Veterans Association says it’s the Cadillac of nursing facilities.
“Everyone has their own bathroom and they have their own private shower,” Radcliff Veterans Center administrator, Israel Ray said.
The suites are individual, unlike most care facilities that are only semi-private.
“That's the least we can do for these great Americans who have done so much for our country,” Kentucky Veterans Affairs Commissioner, Norman Arflack said.
Vets haven't moved in yet, so WDRB was free to tour the more than $40 million center set on nearly 200 acres in Radcliff.
“It’s in close proximity to Fort Knox, obviously with the military population,”Arflack said. “And it’s in close proximity to Louisville as well. We take into consideration where we can best serve the veterans and where their family members can come and visit.”
There are 4 buildings split up into separate, smaller communities that will house a total of 120 veterans.
It's not supposed to feel like a nursing home, it's supposed to feel like home, or better. It has a state-of-the-art kitchen, chef and smaller kitchenettes for the residents. There is a community hang out space and fire place, a chapel, a barber and beauty shop, and larger bathrooms with spa-like features.
