More than two years after the Lovingston Health and Rehabilitation Center closed, a new center is bringing assisted living services to Nelson County, according to The Daily Progress.
The Region Ten Community Services Board, which provides behavioral health and developmental services throughout Central Virginia, recently turned the health and rehab facility into the Town Creek Assisted Living Center for individuals 18 and older who need help with daily living activities but want to remain as independent as possible.
The Lovingston Health and Rehabilitation Center served as a nursing home at 393 Front St. in Lovingston before closing in early 2016, with many residents relocating to the Charlottesville area. Town Creek is the only assisted living facility in Nelson.
Jody Tedder worked at the nursing home for a few years before it closed, at which time she and her patients transferred to Charlottesville.
“I hated to see the building sitting for a couple years, so I’m glad [Region Ten was] able to come back in and open it up,” said Tedder, who has returned to the area to work for Town Creek. “We don’t have anything around here like this, and I think it’s going to be great and help the community a lot.”
