    The Chelsea at Bridgewater, NJ is located right on Rt 202/206N, but is easily accessed by Rt 78, Rt 22, & Rt 287. We are set back from the road, in a lovely wooded neighborhood with the Cross Roads condos for neighbors. Our home is highlighted with large spacious living areas, wide brightly lit corridors, and a never closing country kitchen. Our wellness staff is in the building 24 hours a day, and the nursing director is always available for emergencies. Residents use a pendant system at all times to call for assistance. Our apartments include cable & telephone hook ups, independantly controlled heat and air conditioning, kitchenettes, and bathrooms with shower seats and grab bars. Our housekeeping department cleans the rooms, changes bed linens, and does personal laundry. Our handicapped van takes residents to local doctors appointments, errand runs, or to the local cinema. Our residents are active, involved in the community, and offer a zest for life. We have an active Welcoming Committee who assist with adjustment of any new resident. Monthly entertainers hightlight the weekly programs with talents ranging from karaoke to electrical guitar. Our chorus has performed at local venues. At any time you can find a puzzle in the lounge, a rummycube game in the corner, knitters in the living room and a poker game at night.
    All genders welcome
