Person-Centered Care (PCC) is the common thread running throughout all of ERS’s communities. It’s all about allowing residents to live on their own terms, in a community that is their home.
At Cambridge Heights, PCC means providing a living environment in which you can feel truly independent. You make all of your own decisions about how you spend your day. And staff does more than just go the extra mile to treat residents with respect and loving care. They also provide Cambridge Heights residents with a level of freedom and personal choice they deserve.
At Cambridge Heights there is a palpable sense of community and neighborliness. Camaraderie abounds as residents join one another for meals, events and activities like a game or two in the community room, or a walk on the path around the building.
A grand aviary sits in the entry lounge area, providing endless entertainment as residents watch the birds build nests, lay eggs, and flit playfully around their habitat.
When the weather is warm, it is common to see many residents lounging in our sun room. As the winter chill arrives, the community room provides a wonderfully warm refuge to enjoy time with friends or just enjoy some personal time with a book.
There’s always something going on at Cambridge Heights. From Bible studies to birthday dinners, community events to crafting classes, Cambridge Heights provides a social environment where neighbors become friends, and friends become family.
Our chaplains strive to enrich the spiritual lives of residents, with a focus on the tradition and faith journey of each individual. Ecumenical in ministry, Cambridge Heights serves older adults from all denominations as well as those with no affiliation at all.
We are here for everyone.
Regularly scheduled worship is provided for the community, as are seasonal celebrations and opportunities for faith formation. We also help residents participate in their own faith communities and to seek and support those opportunities within Cambridge Heights that honor our core values, inviting and encouraging the ministry of residents’ faith communities in our midst.
The ministry of the chaplain focuses not only on the residents, but includes staff, volunteers, resident families, and the wider community. Because we care deeply for the soul, enriching the lives of all those who are part of our community is our most important mission.
