The Chelsea at East Brunswick. Assisted Living in East Brunswick, New Jersey
East Brunswick, New Jersey is probably most famous at the home of the main campus for Rutgers University. Because it is, in many ways, a “college town,” some people do not think of East Brunswick as a place for retirees to live, but many of the same perks enjoyed by students make East Brunswick a great location for people who are retired. East Brunswick offers a wide range of cultural activities, many associated with Rutgers University, that are enjoyed, not only by students, but also by the larger community. The academic environment has helped make East Brunswick and the immediate surrounding communities a thriving medical center, with Robert Wood Johnson, one of the nation’s leading teaching hospitals, in nearby New Brunswick. East Brunswick also offers easy access to public transportation, including a train station that can connect residents and their visitors with almost all of the Eastern Seaboard.
The Chelsea at East Brunswick offers comprehensive care for a wide variety of seniors.
One of Chelsea Senior Living’s most comprehensive sites, The Chelsea at East Brunswick is happy to offer a wide range of care options for seniors. These options include both private and semi-private assisted living suites, a memory care unit for residents with Alzheimer’s or other diseases that can impair cognitive functioning, a behavioral health unit for residents challenged by mental health struggles, and respite care facilities for those families where assisted living may not be an appropriate full-time choice.
Regardless of what type and level of care a resident at The Chelsea at East Brunswick requires, there is always an emphasis on independence and dignity. So many times, the challenges of aging chip away at individual autonomy in such a way that meeting an individual’s increasing needs can often result in behavior that erodes self-esteem and dignity. This is only exacerbated when an individual is facing dual challenges, such as aging and cognitive impairment or aging and mental illness. At The Chelsea, dignity and autonomy are crucial to the concept of assisted living, and remain in focus regardless of a resident’s additional challenges.
The Chelsea at East Brunswick understands the importance of social support in assisted living.
Some assisted living centers can marginalize family members, making them feel unwelcome or burdensome, particularly when a resident faces challenges that go beyond normal aging. At The Chelsea at East Brunswick, we firmly believe that loved ones can offer invaluable expertise and insight into our residents. That is why we welcome family and friends and actively seek their involvement with residents in all of our various programs.
The Chelsea at East Brunswick also recognizes that it can play a supportive role, and does so by offering respite care. This gives family members who have taken on the responsibility of senior care the opportunity for the much-needed breaks that can refresh them and make them better caregivers.
