At a Glance

Committed to caring for all residents, The Chelsea is proud to offer seniors an integrated mental health program at our East Brunswick, NJ location. We understand that aging often comes with a variety of stressors, all of which can have a significant impact on emotional and behavioral health.

From medical complications and reduced mobility to the loss of loved ones, seniors may find themselves struggling to cope with the realities of old age or, simply, a traumatic event. At The Chelsea, we understand how trying this can be, and we endeavor to provide a nurturing environment for all residents to thrive.

Individual Needs, Custom Treatment

Rather than treat acute or isolated problems, The Crossings at The Chelsea seeks to address the overall wellness of each resident. Our clinical behavioral health team evaluates every case on an individual basis, focusing on residents’ strengths to curate a realistic treatment plan, designed to meet each senior’s unique physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Residents receive the care they need in the comfort they deserve. Private apartments can be furnished with treasured possessions and personal effects, allowing each resident to flourish within the context of a familiar environment.

In addition to individualized care, all residents benefit from the full range of amenities and activities available in our Senior Living Communities and Assisted Living programs. Always available to provide medical and mental health support, our compassionate team of dedicated professionals is on hand 24/7 to ensure each resident’s wellbeing.
