Buildings and Grounds
The Department of Buildings and Grounds provides support services to ensure the safety, security, and maintenance of the Fairport Baptist Homes campus. Fifteen employees work full time not only to protect the place and the residents and staff, but also to enhance the quality of their lives.
They maintain and repair the physical plant of the nursing home, including security and sprinkler systems, HVAC, boiler room, electrical systems and generators. Porters provide room setups for meetings and assist with all receiving of supplies, furniture, and food. They help with moving and trash removal, including medical waste, and ensure proper operations of fire safety and paging systems. They also provide nightly patrols of parking lots as well as the entire campus.
Grounds people ensure that the campus is safe, clean, and attractive and maintain lawns and plantings not only for the nursing home, but also for Fairport Apartments, Deland Acres, ElizAl Court, and the Northfield.
For the convenience of its residents, the Fairport Baptist Homes maintains a full-service fully-licensed beauty salon, a brightly-lit room tucked into an area off the basement hallway, offering a full range of services to male and female residents alike.
This non-clinical amenity, an informal club of regulars and staff much like that of any other salon, contributes to the residents’ sense of dignity and well-being, recalling a stage in the residents’ lives before wheelchairs, chronic illness, and long-term care became a daily reality. Haircuts, shampoos, and permanent waves, all combined with casual and cheerful conversation with their regular hairdressers, recalls a familiar everyday routine. For many residents, their visit to the salon is the highlight of their week.
