dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis project is to propose a multi-functional addition to an existing convalescent home. This will greatly enlarge the facilities and living areas, while providing a better program for opportunities to develop.The validity for such a proposal is that a part of the existing home needs to be replaced due to unhealthy conditions. This expansion will respond to the demand for additional space required by various department programs and services, along with a demand for occupancy as residents.The DuPage Convalescent Center is located in Wheaton , Illinois, approximately 30 miles west of Chicago, in the middle of DuPage County. Presently on 11 acres of land, it is situated in a rural atmosphere of big trees and open space of land.The Center serves all residents of DuPage County who require convalescent care or are unable to live alone without some kind of care and attention. Most of the people are elderly or physically handicapped from all types of background, with no barrier set for acceptance. It is a state supported institution, run by the county, with an appointed director and professional staff. The people it employs are skilled, semi-skilled and volunteer staff working on a continuous 24 hour basis.This project will entail replacing much of the older existing structures with modern and more than adequate facilities for the residents and those who work there.
