Tentatively planning a grand opening in March, the newly renovated West Point Community Living Center will be a showplace.
A new transitional care unit and therapy gym will be open for those needing rehabilitative therapy.
It is centered on the design to help people return to work or home after debilitating falls and illnesses. It will be available to those in any age group who need some assistance and therapy before returning home.
The 2000 plus square foot addition of therapy gym space will contain strengthening equipment such as a treadmill, weight machines and recumbent bikes.
