NW Ind. nursing center in senior complex to close

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A senior living complex in a northwest Indiana community plans to close its 120-bed skilled nursing facility in November.

The Post-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/15EQcM7 ) 121 workers will be laid off when the skilled nursing center at Town Centre Health Care in Merrillville is closed.

About half of the laid-off employees are nurses and certified nursing aides.

Parent company Capital Senior Living ILM-B Inc. filed notice with the last week that it would close its skilled nursing facility by Nov. 4.

Capital says it will still operate its independent living and assisted living facilities.

Town Centre’s website says it offers apartments for seniors along with an activity center, a salon and exercise classes.
