Set on 26 beautiful acres with ponds and walking trails and located in the lower Connecticut River Valley, Chester Village West is adjacent to a large state forest and just minutes from the town of Chester. Chester is a charming New England village known for fine restaurants, art galleries, and cultural activities. One of Chester’s famous residents, Morley Safer, stated, “Chester is where Walden Pond meets Broadway.”
A Unique Retirement Community
Chester Village West embraces a personal approach to independent senior living — where each person is known, cared for, and encouraged to live a vibrant, healthy life. With a farm-to-table approach to dining, outdoor walking trails, indoor swimming pool, beauty salon, exercise programs, pub, library, music room — as well as transportation and excursions to local and regional destinations — this is a truly active retirement community. Because our community is small, we are able to offer a personal touch in all that we do.
Innovation in Healthy Senior Living
At Chester Village West, we believe in delivering health services personalized for you, enabling you to receive care in a familiar, non-clinical setting where you can comfortably age in place.
Of course, true healthy living starts with a preventative program. That’s why our forward-thinking approach to independent senior living begins with our Health Program. It’s a unique program taking a whole person view of your health by focusing on all 8 Dimensions of Wellness, helping to ensure you stay healthy and independent longer, so you can enjoy your time, friends, and active lifestyle at Chester Village West.
We also provide a full-time, on-campus registered nurse who is available to help with your health care needs. Should you need assistance with the activities of daily living, our nurse will make arrangements to provide the assisted living care you need, so you’re able to remain safely in your own apartment home while continuing your current lifestyle. You pay for assisted living care only if and when you need it. Chester Village West also offers on-campus, Medicare-certified physical, speech, and occupational therapy services.
And in the event residents require skilled nursing care or rehabilitation, Chester Village West will coordinate care with the skilled nursing facility of your choice.
