Reston losing nursing home in 2014

In its monthly newsletter to subscribers, Reston for a Lifetime notes that Cameron Glen will be closing in 2014.  Here is what the newsletter has to say:

Discover a different type of "Nursing Home" 
Could We Help Bring This to Reston?

In 2014 Reston will lose its only Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Cameron Glen Nursing & Rehab. 
 
Loosing this option will mean that Reston will no longer be able to offer the full continuum of care to our elders and people with disabilities. 

 
What if our community could replace this with Nursing Home that you actually wanted to live in and visit?
This is news to us--and not consistent with Reston's goal of providing housing for people at all stages of life in the absence of any news that a new nursing center is opening.  We suspect, however, that it is part of the agreement the County has been working on with INOVA to redistribute the land they own in Town Center North as part of the new Reston Master Plan.

For further information, readers may want to contact Aging in Reston at  aginginreston@gmail.com or call 703-672-1116.
