New Berlin's Chase Nursing Home celebrates 75th birthday

NEW BERLIN – Chase Memorial Nursing Home will be celebrating its 75th anniversary with a garden party from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The celebration, a significant milestone in the nursing home’s rich history, is an opportunity to learn more about what Chase is offering its residents.

The garden party will provide light refreshments and historical displays with music provided by the Small Town Big Band. It will be located on the south lawn in full view of the various flower and vegetable gardens available to residents. The appetizers will even contain produce that has been grown on site.

“It should be a very spirited party with a very fun atmosphere,” said Administrator Roger Halbert. “It’s a chance for people who ... have been involved ... can celebrate what we’ve accomplished.”

Since 1991, Chase Nursing Home has employed a revolutionary method in nursing home treatment. It began with a challenge from the NYS Health Dept. to provide a way to more fully care for patients with mind-altering diseases and developed into a program now employed at various care facilities across the United States, Canada and Europe.

“It was spurred on by the child day care,” said Administrator Roger Halbert. “We could see the benefits of the sights and sounds of children ... that life element which is foreign in most nursing homes.”
