While some nationwide nursing homes are reportedly facing closures due to staffing shortages fueled by the coronavirus pandemic, others are changing. Including the Grill Room at Harbor Chase of Prince William Commons in Woodbridge, Virginia.
The Assisted Living and Memory Care Home offers farm-to-table, fine dining. In fact, it’s been so good that officials told FOX 5 the restaurant has seen an increase in reservations.
The restaurant’s strategy is to attract new guests and potential customers to The Harbor Chase of Prince William Commons, as well as giving the center a new source of income at a time when many assisted living centers are struggling financially.
Currently, up to 60% of centers across the country report operating at a financial loss. The American Healthcare Association says nearly three-quarters of nursing homes are concerned about possible closures.
The restaurant is only open on Fridays and Saturdays, and you must have a dinner reservation.
