Cheshire Home serves as New Jersey's designated special-care nursing facility for older teens and young adults with physical disabilities, primarily paraplegia or quadriplegia resulting from spinal cord injuries. Our mandate is to empower each resident to reach their highest level of self-sufficiency, and transition to independent or semi-independent living.
Our services, inclusive of skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapy, educational and vocational programming, computer instruction, recreational activities, employment opportunities, and specialized transportation, combine to maximize the potential for personal success. Our interdisciplinary, professional staff develops individualized care plans for each resident, with a focus on how we can best help each resident become self-sufficient, and how each resident can work toward the achievement of their goals. Eligible candidates are fully supported in the process of transitioning to independent living.
Cheshire Home participates in Medicaid, Medicare, third party insurance programs and self-pay.
Cheshire II and Cheshire III are small, community-based homes established for individuals with disabilities who are able to live more independently. Please see the "Community Homes" page of this website.
