An Eden Alternative® Certified Community

About Fairacres Manor

Fairacres Manor has been an active part of the Greeley community since 1964 and is the only locally owned skilled nursing and rehabilitation community in Greeley.

For those needing transitional care between the hospital and home, our post-hospitalization program provides specialized, coordinated treatment for complex medical issues. Fairacres offers comfortable accommodations for those in need of short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, or dementia care support.

At Fairacres Manor, we also explore holistic and complementary approaches to care, which may include aromatherapy or massage therapy.

The Eden Alternative® Philosophy

The Eden Alternative® approach to caregiving is about more than medical care. It is about improving the well-being of individuals and their care partners. At Fairacres Manor, we share the Eden Alternative® values of innovation, integrity, community, empowerment, and passion.

The Ten Principles of the Eden Alternative®

  • Principle One: Loneliness, helplessness, and boredom are painful and destructive to our health and well-being.
  • Principle Two: A caring, inclusive and vibrant community enables all of us, regardless of age or ability, to experience well-being.
  • Principle Three: We thrive when we have easy access to the companionship we desire. This is the antidote to loneliness.
  • Principle Four: We thrive when we have purpose and the opportunity to give, as well as receive. This is the antidote to helplessness.
  • Principle Five: We thrive when we have variety, spontaneity, and unexpected happenings in our lives. This is the antidote to boredom.
  • Principle Six: Meaningless activity corrodes the human spirit. Meaning is unique to each of us and is essential to health and well-being.
  • Principle Seven: We are more than our medical diagnoses. Medical treatment should support and empower us to experience a life worth living.
  • Principle Eight: Decision-making must involve those most impacted by the decision. Empowerment activates choice, autonomy, and influence.
  • Principle Nine: Building a collaborative and resilient culture is a never-ending process. We need to keep learning, developing, and adapting.
  • Principle Ten: Wise leadership is the key to meaningful and lasting change. For it, there can be no substitute.

The City of Greeley

Located about 50 miles northeast of Denver, Colorado, the city of Greeley is known for its agriculture and is home to the University of Northern Colorado.

This city attracts people from all over the country to experience the history of this town and tour the Continental Village Museum. This interactive living history experience features a collection of vintage homes, a church, a schoolhouse, and the original Weld County Courthouse on a lot over five acres. Visitors are immersed in the lifestyle of the early settlers of Northeastern Colorado by live, costumed interpreters, farm animals, and landscaping that showcases what life was like during the early pioneer settling of the western high plains.

Rich with history, Greeley is a wonderful place for guests, residents, and families to visit and enjoy!
