THE EDEN ALTERNATIVE™; at CHELSEY PARK LONG TERM CARE RESIDENCE

The Eden philosophy is supported in our home with an extensive volunteer program, horticulture therapy, pets and inter-generational programs with children. These programs reflect our vibrant community.

Based on the smaller setting of our households there are opportunities available for residents to have close and continuous contact with other residents, staff, volunteers and visitors. This supports the development of relationships and one of the key elements in reducing loneliness.

When the residents and families speak about this experience in our home, they talk about the friendliness, warmth and comfort they feel.  Our home supports their involvement in the daily activities that we offer as well as encourages resident involvement in the daily tasks of our operation. 

Pets are an important addition to our program. Animals are a drawing card for participation and residents benefit from the companionship. Programs include pet visiting of dogs and cats as well as fish aquariums throughout our home.  

Chelsey Park promotes a philosophy of resident involvement in decision making; decisions about menus, linen choices, design décor and community outings. These daily opportunities for involvement can have a dramatic effect on residents feeling valued and involved. 

One of the most meaningful programs we offer is that each resident is given an opportunity where our staff support and facilitate a special request that would make the resident truly happy.
