Catering to individuals with increased cognitive and physical limitations such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, the Florence & Chafetz staff is a key reason why the residence is in such high demand. Our caring and compassionate caregivers have extremely long tenure with the organization; there is little staff turnover, which is reassuring to our residents and families. The personalized support services enable residents to live in a safe environment while still maintaining a level of independence. This unique setting allows your loved ones to bond with other residents, creating special friendships that truly enhance the quality of life. Let us make your loved ones feel safe, nurtured and happy.
