Jewish Senior Life plans a $100 million project to add new units and upgrade existing facilities at its 75-acre Winton Road campus, officials said Tuesday.

As a centerpiece is the construction of 14 Green House residential homes undertaken as a collaboration with the Green House Project, a Virginia-based non-profit that promotes construction of long-term care facilities in keeping with principles promoted by William Thomas M.D.    

An Ithaca geriatrician and co-founder of the Brighton-based Eden Alternative, Thomas advocates for a non-medical long-term care model in which elders rather than nurses or aides largely control their surroundings and schedules.

In addition to St. John’s Home and the Rochester Presbyterian home, long-term care facilities in more than 30 U.S. states and several foreign countries have adopted the Eden Alternative model.

Each of the 14 Jewish Senior Life Green House units is planned for a dozen residents and is to include a large open kitchen, great room and dining area. Each private room is to have its own bath.

Also planned for the Winton Road campus is new, moderately priced senior rental housing, the addition of a Medicaid-eligible assisted-living program and major renovation of the Jewish Home.

The Jewish Home renovation plan calls for the 294-bed, skilled nursing facility’s double occupancy rooms to be converted to single occupancy and for conversion of some the high-rise’s long-term-care beds to post-surgical rehabilitation.  

Officials hope to wrap the project up in 2016.
