Residents were the final piece of the move from the old Akron Care Center to the brand new nursing home, located at 991 Highway 3, across from the Akron Fire Station.

Rooms are ready in the new Care Center nursing home on the east edge of Akron.

On Monday, residents had breakfast in the old facility, then moved into their new home.

All last week, construction crews were finishing last minute details, and Care Center staff were busy moving in their equipment, supplies and offices.

On Aug. 6, a private tour was held for residents’ families, facility medical staff, Care Center Trustees, Akron councilors, and all Building Committees members. The Akron Care Center Auxiliary Board served cheesecake.

A Grand Opening Open House is scheduled for Sept. 28. Watch for more details in upcoming Hometowner issues.
