Cheshire commissioners to gather public opinion on county nursing home plans
The dates and locations of the meetings have not been set, but there will be four to five meetings held in the county, said County Commissioner Chairman John Pratt.
“We’ll try to provide enough information for a range of options that the delegation is considering,” Pratt said.
In June, County Commissioners voted to accept a report from a county task force that proposes the county construct a new nursing home in Keene to replace the outdated Maplewood Nursing Home in Westmoreland.
“We’re trying to cost that out and get as many good figures as we can,” Pratt said.
“Funding from the state is already beginning a process of cutting back payments to nursing homes. What’s that going to look like in three or four years? What’s home health care going to look like in three or four years,” Pratt said.
