Welcome to Cheshire Home!
Cheshire Home is New Jersey's leading provider of unique residential and rehabilitative services to young adults with spinal cord injuries or neurological impairments, and the only stand-alone facility of its kind in our state. Licensed as a special care nursing facility with a 35-bed capacity, we espouse a "can do" philosophy, and empower each individual we serve to attain their highest level of self-sufficiency. Our residents, admitted between the ages of 18 and 55, have quadriplegia, paraplegia, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, or related conditions.
Our Home offers an atmosphere of comfortable living, peer support, caring, professional services, and programs designed to help each resident advance their personal goals. Our care plans are individualized, proactive and broad-based, inclusive of nursing, physical therapy, education, recreation, transportation and counseling services. On a daily basis our residents pursue a lifestyle of their own choosing, through higher education, on and offsite employment, community volunteerism, and socialization. Often when residents attain independence and transition out of Cheshire Home, they do so with college degrees that pave the way to career paths.
We invite you to visit Cheshire Home through the pages of this website, to preview our exceptional programs and amenities, and to go beyond our doors to Cheshire II and Cheshire III, our community-based homes for adults with disabilities who are able to live semi- independently. What you will find is a distinctive organization fully dedicated to the belief that each individual is ABLE, Not Idle, and fully capable of living a meaningful life.
Many of our programs and services are sustained through grant funding and private donations, and we appreciate your generous support!
