Welcome addition

The Ambassador of Scarsdale, a 115-bed assisted living facility now under construction on Saxon Woods Road near the White Plains border, will bring new, much needed housing to Scarsdale — and Westchester County. We look forward to its completion and commend the developer, Renamba, for its stamina and resolve.

The facility, and assisted living in general, was long in coming. A 1999 study by the county planning department, titled Assisted Living and Related Senior Housing, recognized the need to find a place for the increasing number of county residents over 85 who are no longer able to live independently but don’t need the level of skilled nursing care provided in nursing homes. Centers like the Ambassador fill that need. As baby boomers age and medical science improves and extends lifetimes, that demographic will only continue to increase in size.

According to 2010 National Survey of Residential Care Facilities by the National Center of Health Statistics and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there are about 31,000 assisted living facilities (the survey calls them residential care facilities) countrywide, with about 972,000 beds. (In comparison, there are 15,658 Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing homes.) Read more >

SPOTLIGHT

Two fixtures in community plan their retirement

By DEBRA BANERJEE

Growing up on a farm in Nebraska, Dr. Merlin Rehm realized that being a farmer like his father was not what he wanted to do with his life.

“We lived not much differently than the Amish do,” Rehm told the Inquirer. The self-sufficient farm family grew oats, soy and wheat, and raised pigs. Both sets of grandparents had been born in Germany and emigrated to New York before some family members settled in the west.

With a scholarly bent, the Lutheran born and raised Rehm left the farm and after college went into the seminary in Wisconsin. Now, after a long career with the Lutheran Church, the last 15 years as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church on Crane Road, Rehm, 80, plans to retire at the end of this year, or sooner, if a replacement for him is found. Congregation president Michael Coffey heads a search committee to find a replacement.
