Bergen Gardens uses a unique citizenship model for organizing our community. This process includes inviting the people living at Bergen Gardens to communicate their opinions and needs to each other, and then with the help of their Care Partners and Mentors go on to participate in planning their life within the community. Within each neighbourhood we develop a robust framework of support that is focused on various aspects of personal wellness.
At Bergen Gardens we are also re-imagining what it means to access quality health care while living in this community. Everyone has times in their lives when they require health care and Bergen Gardens has a multipronged, dignified approach to assist people to find the right care at the right time, with the right health care professional or team, in the right place—whether that be in house, at a clinic or in a hospital—in the right way, according to their personal directions.
