At Neuvant House we believe that care should be based on the resident’s capabilities, physical health, behavioral status and personal preferences.

We all know that spending time with friends is fun, but it may also yield a multitude of long-term physical and emotional benefits. Studies show that healthy relationships make aging more enjoyable, lessen grief, and provide camaraderie to help you reach personal goals, among other things. Maintaining positive relationships should rank up there with healthy eating and exercise as a necessary investment in your health.
Friendships occur naturally between residents and staff. People support each other, care for each other and become part of a unique family; often compensating for each other’s frailties. At Neuvant House, no one is alone unless the resident wishes to be in the privacy of his/herown apartment. It is heartwarming to watch special friendships develop and grow.
