GREENVILLE - The Village Green Healthcare Center campus is schedule to open in the fall with a community open house slated for mid-October.
The residents of Village Green Healthcare Center, a Trilogy Health Services Community, will soon be packing their belongings in preparation for a move that they have been eagerly anticipating. With the upcoming opening of Village Green Health Campus later this year at 1315 KitchenAid Way, the residents’ journey may be short in distance, but the difference in their new home is immeasurable, indicated a spokesperson.
Trilogy Health Services acquired the Gade HealthCare center in February 2012, made the name change to Village Green Healthcare Center, and plan to rename the campus to Village Green Health Campus upon the opening of the new, state-of-the-art Village Center campus this fall. Village Green Health Campus will continue the strong tradition of service that Darke County seniors have come to expect since the facility was purchased by Trilogy Health Services.
Village Green Health Campus is built on the “Village Center” residential living model created by Louisville, Kentucky-based, Trilogy Health Services. The Village Center design allows residents to maximize their independence, while creating a more homelike, less-institutional atmosphere. The design features small neighborhood clusters that surround a central gathering area featuring a full-service restaurant, ice cream parlor, health club and other amenities; creating a sense of community for residents and families.
Village Squares have always been a hub of activity in communities across the Midwest – a place to meet, mingle, socialize, and catch up on the day’s news and happenings, it was noted.
“Friendships were forged, and communities were established through the relationships built around the village square,” the spokesperson said. “Seniors in Greenville an now experience the same sense of community with the opening of Village Green Health Campus.”
“We are thrilled to expand our services to the residents of Greenville and the surrounding communities,” said Nicholas Anderson, executive director of Village Green Health Campus. “We look forward to bringing our team leadership, servant hearts and exceptional approach to resident care and services to area seniors through our new Greenville location. We invite members of the community to attend our Community Open House on Oct. 19, from 1 to 3 p.m. to take tours of our campus and meet our team of caregivers.”
Village Green Health Campus, he said, held its town meeting on July 9 at the Lighthouse Christian Center, where members of the community attended to hear a brief presentation on the campus’ amenities and services and met members of the Village Green Health Campus team.
Village Green Health Campus features a full continuum of senior living and related healthcare services, all offered in a homelike setting that features an abundance of private suites, chef-prepared meals, and services specially tailored to meet residents’ individual preferences and achieve the goals of providing home, hospitality and healthcare. Services in the Village Center will include assisted living, short-term rehabilitation, memory care, long-term care/skilled nursing and transitional care, adult day services and respite care. These options will allow the campus staff to care for a wide variety of residents.
The health center facility has a capacity of 51 residents, while the assisted living residence capacity is 24 residents and memory care neighborhood capacity is 14.
Rooms come fully furnished, or families can bring their own furniture. Rooms have individually controlled heating and air, private baths with drop-down shower seat and hand-held shower nozzle in a walk in shower, call cords at toilet and in shower stall; and assisted living suites also include a kitchenette.
Village Center features ample common areas including Village Center with café tables, living rooms, ice cream parlor, library and sun terrace. There is a nurse’s station and living room on each hall allowing the nurses and caregivers quick access to assist the residents. A call system located at nurses’ station allows for quick response. Medical director and/or personal physician will see residents on a regular basis.
Courtyards are located throughout the campus.
Legacy Lane Memory Care Neighborhood is specially designed to serve those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
“It utilizes the person-centered approach to care,” Anderson said.“We strive to help our residents to feel more like they are at home, rather than in an institution.”
There is a private suite with private bathroom; a daily rhythms program [activities program which helps set and support a healthy energy pattern for residents with activities offered throughout the day]; regular supervised outings and special entertainment events; family-style dining; and life stations [areas designed to help residents engage in tasks and activities that they may have performed in their younger years including baby bassinet, office area, and clothes closet].

Its culture is focused on the values of servant leadership and Trilogy Service Standards, which emphasize exceeding customer expectations in all areas, including resident activities and programming, fine dining, family care and employee care to name a few.
“Each service standard is designed to provide an exceptional service experience, whether you are a Trilogy resident, family member, employee or community member,” Anderson said.
