Suzette Molina, The Eden Alternative

Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Chipley, FL joined The Eden Registry on May 13, 2013. Located in a small rural town in the Florida panhandle, they are home to approximately 155 Elders.  Person-directed care coupled with meaningful relationships is the driving force in this home.  They have fun getting to know each other through activities that encourage independence and compliment the rhythm of daily life. Gardening and cooking are often used to compliment traditional therapy modalities. The quality of life program is designed to provide exciting activities such as canoe trips, fishing trips, camping, the Watermelon Festival, and the Rodeo Festival. But that’s not all, Elders here also have the opportunity to achieve their life long dreams which have included swimming with the dolphins and helicopter rides and trips to Myrtle Beach.  Mealtime here at Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a wonderful time for friends and family to gather together for a hot meal of their choosing and more wonderful things are yet to come as they add more and more to the dining experience this year. This home is committed to making a difference in the lives of all of the people they touch each day.
