Rochester's Cornerstone Group, Ltd. and Genesis Housing Development Corporation, a 501(c)(3), have broken ground on Cornerstone Pointe Apartments, a sixty-six (66) unit supportive housing project for seniors 62 and older to be constructed in the Town of Greece. The site is adjacent to Long Pond Senior Housing, the 54-unit Cornerstone project completed at the end of 2015. There will be 66 units, with a mix of 59 1-bedroom unit (51 at 724 sf; 4 @ 700 sf; 4 @ 713 sf) and 7 2-bedroom units (950 sf).
Thirty-three (33) units (50% of the total Project units) will be set aside for occupancy by MRT frail elderly households enrolled in Medicaid. the Project meets New York State's Medicaid Redesign Team's goals by expanding lower cost community-based supportive housing alternatives to high cost Medicaid paid nursing home or emergency room care. The Project will contract Rochester Regional Health to refer frail elderly residents to the Project.
Rochester Regional Health and it's affiliates will work with our residents to offer assessment and care management services to ensure that identified services and support needs are met so residents may enjoy independent residency. RRH's ElderONE "Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE)" will work with those residents identified as frail enough to need nursing home, but instead choose PACE services to help them live at home. The comprehensive and coordinated services of ElderONE are a perfect match with Cornerstone Pointe Apartments to combine senior living and health and supportive services. The nationally recognized PACE program enables seniors to age in a place they call home. 33 of our 66 units are set aside for occupancy by frail, Medicaid enrolled seniors.
