The recent purchase of the Frewsburg Rest Home by the Tanglewood Group has been announced by Nicholas Ferreri, Tanglewood president and CEO.
The Frewsburg Rest Home, an 81-bed Adult Home located in Frewsburg, has been owned and operated by the Sischo family for 40 years. The current owner, Steve Sischo, is the son of Joyce and Malcom Sischo, who purchased the facility in 1974.
Ferreri expressed excitement about the purchase, stating that he felt incorporating a small, quaint option like Frewsburg to Tanglewood's existing offerings would broaden the company's appeal to prospective residents and their families who are looking for an appealing, rural living option. The Tanglewood Group currently operates two facilities on its Jamestown campus; Tanglewood Manor, a 158-bed assisted living facility and Memory Garden, a 56-bed dementia-special needs assisted living residence. Their tag line, "where caring and community come together," resonates with staff and residents alike and speaks to the company's desire to provide its' residents with dignity in a home environment.
Sischo, who has been very active in the day-to-day activities of the residents at Frewsburg, will continue to be involved throughout the transition. It is expected that the acquisition will be complete within the next few months.
