Closing a chapter of our local history

By Owen Liefer

The closing of Red Bud Regional Care Nursing Home has left the residents and their families heartbroken. Many residents have lived there comfortably for many years and expected to spend the rest of their lives in a facility they have called home. Our community is sad to see the closing of such a medical necessary facility to care for our aging population.

This facility has been a part of our local community for almost 50 years. Ground was broken in 1974, for the first ever nursing home facility in Randolph County.
