At Eden, we support individuals from childhood through their senior years. From our school to our adult day centers to our residences, we continuously work to ensure that our facilities meet the evolving needs of participants.
This summer, Winsten House was renovated to improve accessibility. The entire house was addressed, including the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and dining areas. Now wheelchair accessible, the new indoor spaces and exterior ramps make the home functional for participants who use a wheelchair or would simply benefit from the assistance of grab bars.
“Ensuring the individuals we support are comfortable, happy, and safe has always been a priority,” said Eden Autism President & CEO Michael Decker. “As the number of men and women approaching their senior years grows, this priority is particularly important.”
Robbinsville Township generously contributed $100,000 towards the renovation initiative. Gia Gore, the Director of Real Estate, conveyed her heartfelt appreciation, stating, “Robbinsville has consistently been a staunch supporter of our mission. With over 23 years of experience in developing housing for individuals with special needs, I can confidently affirm that among all the municipalities I’ve engaged with throughout New Jersey, Robbinsville stands out as the most supportive and benevolent.”
Gia’s enthusiasm was evident as she witnessed the realization of the house’s transformation. “This is a residence I would personally choose to live in, a place that I would be proud to have my family members reside in as well,” she said. “That has always been my ultimate goal – creating a space that caters not only to the residents’ practical requirements but also fosters an aesthetically pleasing environment to gracefully age in place.”
