Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is currently the only Eden Registered Nursing Home in the State of Florida. As a comprehensive culture change model, The Eden Alternative focuses on creating elder-centered communities—wherever elders live—that thrives on close and continuing relationships, meaningful interactions, opportunities to give as well as receive, and a rich and diverse daily life. Elder-centered communities are places where treatment is the servant of genuine human caring, elders are the daily decision-makers, and where wise leaders grow other leaders.


This prestigious designation is reserved for the top 10% of nursing homes in the nation!
