Camphill Ghent is a vibrant residential community for elders that offers a meaningful quality of life and a rich, active social program designed to support residents in maintaining their independence and joy of living.
Located on 110 beautiful acres in rural upstate New York, Camphill Ghent is in a prime location, just minutes from the quaint village of Chatham and close to the expansive cultural life of the Hudson Valley, Berkshires and Capital Region.
“Knowing of the excellent reputation around the world that the Camphill movement enjoys, I was honored to become the first chairman of Camphill Ghent’s board. This bold experiment in integrated senior living represents something quite new for Camphill in North America. Camphill Ghent is setting an example not only for Camphill but for all those who have an interest in how people of varying abilities can live together in community as they grow old. I'm excited to be part of this effort.”
"My mom has also been at Camphill Ghent. We were hoping things would be as good as the place she lived in before, which was another very nice senior community. Our hopes and expectations have been exceeded by quite a bit, and it seems to be getting better all the time! Something very special and good is behind assembling a staff like the folks I have met working here. In a word, it is HEART...!"
“I have a special appreciation for the care provided here at Camphill Ghent. I feel like I'm treated as well here as I would be at the home of one of my family members. The staff are friendly and nice, there are lots of activities to keep me busy, and I am learning all about Camphill. I love it here!”
