A beauty supply store is opening its doors to nursing home residents in North Carolina.
The North Carolina Nurses Association announced Wednesday that they have purchased a 24,000 square foot space in the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services building in Raleigh, NC.
The association has also purchased a two-story space at the North Cascades Regional Health Center in Asheville, NC, and plans to expand to the North Dakota State University Medical Center in Fargo.
The new facility will be located at the north side of the North American Medical Center Building, and will be accessible only by wheelchair.
The nursing home community, however, will still be able to access the building’s entrance.
“Nursing homes are a very diverse community, and we’re thrilled to be able bring a wide range of products to the space,” said Julie Brown, vice president of marketing for the NorthCascades Association of Nursing Homes.
“We are excited to offer our customers more choices and convenience with our products, and look forward to expanding our offerings to the nursing homes in the future.”
The NorthCascade Nurses’ Association is one of the largest nonprofit nursing home associations in the U.S.
The nursing homes are typically run by state-run agencies or private corporations, but they are able to make a profit through sales of nursing home supplies and services.
They are also able to provide services such as home visits, medical evaluations and home care, as well as help patients stay healthy.
According to the Association, its members serve more than 3.4 million residents, and they have received more than $7 billion in public and private support.
