CHI (Church Homes, Inc.) is a nonprofit, nonsectarian corporation committed to providing the finest in residential living and healthcare services for older adults while maintaining the highest levels of independence. CHI owns and operates two highly regarded retirement communities in Connecticut, Avery Heights in Hartford and Noble Horizons in Salisbury.

CHI’s 50-year history is one of innovation and leadership. Our villages offer a wide range of independent lifestyle options, ranging from quaint, New England-style cottages to spacious apartments with a host of services and amenities. A full calendar of diverse social, cultural and recreational programming complements daily life at a CHI village.

Residents of CHI villages have the peace of mind that comes with a complete continuum of care, including adult day care, home health care, assisted living, subacute care, short- and long-term rehabilitation, and outpatient rehabilitation as well as intermediate and skilled nursing care. This continuum allows CHI to respond to the unique health care needs of each and every one of our residents. For example, if an apartment dweller at Avery Heights or a cottager at Noble Horizons undergoes heart surgery, the subacute unit at Avery or Noble can oversee nursing care and rehabilitation following discharge until the resident can return to independent living or perhaps to another level of care.

Such personal attention to our residents’ wants and needs is a CHI staple. After all, we know that living life to the fullest is an ageless pursuit.
