It is with a very heavy heart, and regret that the Board of Managers of the Hazel Carpenter Home, have made the decision to close our Adult Home. We have provided services to the Senior population of Madison County for over 136 years, and this decision was a very difficult one to make.
A slow, steady decline in our number of new resident admissions over the past 6 years, in combination with shorter lengths-of-stays, forced us to this decision.
The Board of Managers, Home Administrator, and Staff are doing everything necessary to make the transition of our current residents to a new facility as easy as possible.
Thank you all for your generous support through the years. The Board will be pursusing other options for continuing to support senior citizens in Madison County through their charitable not-for-profit corporation.
