The Quaker philosophy emphasizes supporting individual strengths, respecting each person’s dignity and creating a participative social environment. Chandler Hall embraces these ideals by hosting outside community events and welcoming civic activities groups and entertainers. A YMCA on the grounds is accessible to residents of the facility, as well as the greater community. An adult day care program, a licensed kindergarten and a child day care center also share the campus. Intergenerational programming is a mainstay. This community is one of few in the area that has a separate hospice unit open to patients of any age.This facility extends over several acres of land, similar to a small college campus. Spacious independent living cottages are spread throughout the grounds . Some of them even have dens. The assisted living component at Chandler Hall is quite large. These residents occupy four separate buildings, warmly referred to as manor houses, in addition to the Hicks, an assisted living unit located in the skilled nursing building. The manor houses are designed like family homes, with living, dining and family rooms, fireplaces and pianos in several common spaces, and grand spiral staircases leading to the second levels. The Hicks caters to residents who require more assistance than those who are able to reside in one of the manor houses. The unit has a large living room and colorful dining area with a fireplace, as well as a secure, shaded deck. Assisted living accommodations are all bright studio and one-bedroom apartments with small kitchen areas, large bathrooms and ample storage space. Residents with dementia live in various sections throughout the campus, depending on their care needs. The Dignity in Dementia program refers to a philosophy of care in which staff members strive to treat all residents with respect and consideration.The skilled nursing unit provides both long-term and rehabilitative care. Hardwood floors help eradicate the institutional atmosphere. Homey touches, such as shutters on the doors and memory boxes outside the rooms, add warmth to the environment. Resident rooms have large windows and colorful borders along the walls. The central area overflows with plants and trees, surrounded by seating and illuminated by skylights. This rejuvenating area overlooks the child day care, and residents enjoy watching the children at play. Residents who require feeding assistance eat in a separate dining room. Two living rooms, a therapy room and an activity room, open to the entire Chandler Hall community, round out the common areas. The activity room contains a kitchen, pottery room and a gardening section. Wall murals of trees add a creative flair to the rotating seasonal décor. A path through a commemorative area called Memory Garden leads to Wright Meeting Hall. An auditorium and balcony make the room truly multipurpose. A beautiful baby grand piano takes center stage. In addition to being used for activities, concerts and meetings, the room is also rented out to community organizations. A large café just across the hall is also rented occasionally, sometimes for a clergy breakfast. There are plenty of opportunities for residents to have fun and socialize, taking trips to nature centers and museums and participating in activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, exercises and religious services.
