Convenience and support services
Life changes. We change right along with you.
The Chamberlin’s innovative approach to retirement living is designed to help residents maintain their independence longer, and spend their time doing the things they enjoy most. All of our convenience and support services are designed to offer flexibility in both lifestyle and finances. That’s why our residents can choose from our long list of convenience and support services, and add any of them – as needed – to their monthly bill.
If they don’t need the service, they don’t pay for it. Simple as that.
Personal assistance. Highly personalized.
Sometimes, the only thing someone needs to maintain his or her independence is a little extra help. That’s why The Chamberlin is so pleased to offer daily living assistance that is as individualized as it is economical.
Home care services are available in partnership with Heart Song Care, LLC. You’ll pay only for the services that you need. Whether its daily medication reminders, help with dressing or grooming, bathing assistance or an escort to the dining room, residents can always find the help they need.
Rehab and Recovery. Right here at home.
Forget the time, cost and burden of traveling to rehabilitation appointments.
At The Chamberlin, rehabilitative services are available in partnership with local rehabilitation providers. You’ll enjoy physical, occupational and speech rehabilitative services right here at home.
All services are billed separately and are often covered by Medicare or long-term health care insurance.

“Sometimes now when I look out our window in The Chamberlin while watching ship traffic it amazes me to realize that hundreds of years ago a good number of my own ancestors passed in sailing ships the spot that I am looking at in the present day.”
“Curtis was born in Barboursville, W.V. and Julia in Huntington, W.VA. After 34 years Curtis retired as Captain USN. Julie is the “Admiral”. Curtis and Julia were married in 1954. They have 2 children and 5 grandchildren (plus some “strays”).”
“With no big buy-in, living at The Chamberlin enables me to remain financially independent, something that’s extremely important to me. By avoiding that big buy-in I can continue to be on my own and don’t have to depend on my children.”
“We’ve got a whole wonderful lifestyle. We can go swimming, get a haircut, get good food without leaving the building. And within a very easy distance are all the hobbies and things I love to do. We can play in the yard, dig in the dirt, and go fishing. Plus, the fort is magnificent.”
“We have a full time activities director and she’s doing more and more – as a matter of fact now we have two activities directors keeping up with all the things that are going on here. For us, it’s like living on a cruise ship.”
“Growing up during the big depression, many of us learned to really value money. We want to be secure and financially independent. We want value. I feel like we have value for our money here at The Chamberlin. We get our money’s worth for sure.”
“I get up every morning and can’t believe that I’m living in such a great place. I love the sense of grandeur here, the charm of the building and the way it’s been so beautifully renovated. And I love that that we live right on the bay”
“Here you are really getting twice as much as what you pay for. Wonderful accommodations, wonderful staff, wonderful view. How many more wonderfuls do you need?”
