Bracken County Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Augusta, KY joined the Eden Alternative Registry on May 27, 2014.

Located on 50 acres just 45 miles outside of greater Cincinnati in the rural community of Chatham, Kentucky, they are home to 32 Elders.  This is a thriving and vibrant community filled with empowered Elders and care partner employees that know how to make each day count. 

On days when the weather is nice, the back courtyard is a favorite gathering spot with its shady pine shade trees, gorgeous flower beds and white picket fence.  Many enjoy watching the birds eat from the bird feeders and hummingbird feeders that line the entire building.

Currently the raised garden beds are growing green beans, pepper and tomatoes and herbs that are harvested and enjoyed in Elders meals. Mealtimes are always a special time together and each day is kick started with a warm, nutritious made to order breakfast?  Sunday’s are an exciting and busy day with local churches coming to give thanks and worship with the Bracken County Care and Rehab family.  They have formed numerous Elder driven committees to ensure that they are honoring choice and providing plenty of opportunities for growth and well-being for all.  If you are in the area stop by and let the Elders on the Sunshine Committee give you a tour. Email Erich Hayman if you have any questions about their journey.
