Sunrise Manor Nursing Home
Hodgenville, KY

The new two story Sunrise Manor consists of 90,785 square feet with the capacity of 130 long term resident's rooms.  Sunrise Manor Nursing Home offers a wide variety of care, with skilled, semi skilled care for short-term and long term residents and Alzheimer care.  The facility is also equipped with the capacity for adult daycare and inpatient and outpatient physical therapy along with other forms of therapy.  The innovative design of the resident's rooms is unique to other nursing homes with the rooms being built at an angle; this allows for maximum privacy to each occupant.  This layout permits two residents per room but provides each resident the feeling of a private room with an individual window, storage units, their own flat screen TV and extra living space.  The facility includes a beauty salon, two dining areas, spacious halls and numerous sitting parlors.  There is also a courtyard to allow the residents enjoyment and relaxation outside the facility.

Sunrise Manor offers a new way of thinking and living for people who have found themselves in need for a long term facility for a loved one.  It is also an asset to the community by offering physical, occupational and speech therapy services.  The unique architectural design and layout of this project sets the mark for future nursing homes.

This honor would not have been possible without the dedication of our valued subcontractors, Jerry Herndon Architect, and the entire Branscum Construction Team.  Branscum would like to express our gratitude to Larue County Geriatric Center and everyone at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.  Branscum Construction would also like to formally thank everyone who worked on the Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.
