Holton Home outgrew its small farmhouse by the turn of the 20th Century. In 1903, with gifts of $10,000 from Russell Lamb and $5000 from Harry Newman, the current stone building was built. It was one of the first buildings in town to boast indoor plumbing and central heat and had cherry woodwork and multiple fireplaces throughout. It began and remains the region’s premier home for our elders.
We have an old building that has been continually updated to take advantage of the best current safety technology for protection and care of our residents and staff.
Over the years, we have updated the safety features of the home to include a full, in-house sprinkler system as well as fire proof doors on magnetic latches that automatically close to provide two hours of protection in the event of a fire emergency.
We also have three fire-safe stairwells wide enough for us to help patients quickly to safety.
Our resident’s bathrooms include easy to use paddle handles for hot and cold water, step-in showers with shower heads that can be handheld as well as safety grab bars all around.
Residents also have a call bell in the bathroom by the toilet and on the wall by the bed, in addition to the one they can wear around their neck.
Residents control the heat in their own rooms.
Our building is very tight and ‘green’ with heat recovery systems in place to lighten our carbon footprint, keep residents comfortable and maintain affordable monthly fees.
