The Development Review Board approved a plan to make the former Derby Green Nursing Home a place to house

DERBY — The Development Review Board approved a plan to make the former Derby Green Nursing Home a place to house and educate Ukrainians driven from their country by war. The vote by the board on Monday was unanimous to allow Scott and Theresa Cianciolo to convert the former nursing home into the Agape House Of Mercy, a residential facility where about 28 people from Ukraine would be housed. Derby Green Nursing Home closed in early 2020 after 36 years of operation. It was a 23-bed skilled nursing care facility. The decision to close was based on financial pressures and the difficulty of staffing the facility.
