Towsley Village Memory Care Center
Loved ones experiencing dementia have changing needs. Towsley Village has been designed to address those needs. Staff members provide compassionate care and support to enable residents to develop a comfortable, engaging daily routine with optimal independence. The intimate surroundings offer an easily navigable environment with private, group, and outdoor options to explore.
Chelsea Retirement Community has a long history of leadership in innovative care for residents experiencing brain changes. The indoor spaces in Towsley Village were designed to mimic a family dwelling, with four distinct neighborhoods. Neighborhood staff strive to build meaningful relationships with each resident to foster rapport which will establish the foundation needed to respond to changing needs.
Residents bring their own furniture and belongings to provide familiarity and comfort in their private spaces. Access to therapeutic outdoor environments offer opportunities to take advantage of the restorative qualities of nature. Towsley Village strives to provide best practice care to enhance the daily lives of those coping with dementia and their families.
Kresge Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center
People often ask: What makes Chelsea Retirement Community unique among other senior living options? Without a doubt, few can boast the premier nursing and rehabilitative care options that we offer. Our beautifully remodeled Kresge Rehabilitation Center features excellent services from a top-notch staff of medical and therapeutic professionals.
Doctors throughout Michigan routinely refer patients to Kresge for short-term medical, nursing and rehabilitation needs. Many of our patients have been recently hospitalized and need more time to recover before returning home. Others have chronic medical conditions that also demand special attention but generally don’t require a hospital stay. At Kresge, our staff provides a unique and personal experience to each of our residents, while focusing on quality treatment and comfort.
Chelsea Retirement Community residents also find that having easy access to Kresge is a major benefit, allowing them to get back on their feet, and back to enjoying their passions in life, more quickly and easily. While on the road to recovery, patients can make themselves comfortable in attractively appointed private and semi-private rooms with generous common areas.
