The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
Stronghurst:Henderson County Retirement Center received word from Congressman Phil Hare that U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development approved financing for their new 18 room assisted living facility.
Congressman Hare along with Illinois Director for Rural Development Doug Wilson will present a ceremonial check to HCRC board members and staff at a public event this Saturday, June 21.
The much needed financing will make it possible for Henderson County Retirement Center, Inc. (HCRC), a non-profit corporation first created to provide nursing home care for area residents, to meet the changing health care needs in Henderson and surrounding counties.
The new facility called Oak Wood Estates Retirement Village will include all the services needed to ensure comfortable, independent living for seniors who would benefit from assistance with medicine, meals, and housekeeping in addition to numerous amenities.
Rural Development is providing financial backing for the project, and is partnering with Security Savings Bank in Monmouth and Stronghurst for some of the funding.
Henderson County Retirement Center was organized in 1986 by a group of concerned citizens, and it has continued to enjoy strong support from the community ever since.
In recognition of that support, HCRC is inviting the public to participate in the check presentation at 1:00 p.m. at the site where the long awaited new facility will be built adjacent to Oak Lane Nursing and Rehab, 604 Oakwood in Stronghurst.
Refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome to come.
