Our Assisted Living program offers a warm and inviting home environment designed to foster a positive sense of well being and belonging. Our personalized supportive services promote independence, dignity, and a holistic approach to care that focuses on mind, body, and spirit. We incorporate a wide range of programs, entertainment, and social events developed to reflect Residents' interests and enhance their quality of life.
As part of our unparalleled continuum of care at NewBridge on the Charles, we not only offer Residents the finest in housing and medical care but also the most advanced events to stay active and engaged in the community. This participation is personal for each Resident. Those in assisted living have a wide range of opportunities to contribute, enjoy different ways to remain creative and productive, and maintain an important sense of accomplishment. Through interactive community living and a diverse range of programs, we offer:
A Personalized Approach to Maintaining Individuality and Independence
We are committed to constant communication with Residents and families to ensure that each individual is experiencing an optimal living environment. This starts with the pre-move in meeting, in which our team learns about our new Resident in detail – his or her history, talents, preferences, and goals. Based on this information, we work with each Resident to develop an individualized service plan.
We focus on wellness - emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental and physical. An individual's personalized service plan might include yoga classes, swimming, concerts, multigenerational activities, lectures, spiritual services and programs, trips to museums and cultural attractions, community gardening, volunteering, as well as assistance with activities of daily living. And we also look to our Residents for their own expertise that they may wish to share with others!
Then, at a minimum of every six months, our team meets again with each Resident and family to revisit the plan and make adjustments to ensure that all needs are being met.
A Commitment to Lifelong Learning
At NewBridge on the Charles, we believe that learning never ends. Lifelong learning enhances daily life. Whether it's participation in a current affairs workshop, listening to a chamber music ensemble, visiting a new art exhibition at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, or viewing wildlife from one of our nature trails, we make sure our lifelong learning program is continually current, interesting, and challenging.
The Rhythm of Life ®
Art is at the heart of the NewBridge community. The arts keep us stimulated and engaged. Our special program, The Rhythm of Life®, incorporates the arts into life at our Assisted Living Community. Our Residents have the opportunity to enjoy musical performances, dance, take trips to local performances and museums, enjoy plays and poetry readings, and participate in art instruction and art history discussions.
Vigorous Minds© - A Computerized Approach To Brain Fitness
Exercising one's brain is as important as exercising one's body. In our Vigorous Mind Brain Fitness Center, assisted living Residents have the opportunity to participate in a series of brain exercises that focus on attention, memory, language, and reasoning. It's a fun and challenging way to stay active and engaged - as well as potentially prevent or delay cognitive decline.
A Vibrant On-Site Multigenerational Program with The Rashi School
NewBridge on the Charles is a multigenerational campus and also the home of The Rashi School, a K-8 Jewish day school, bringing seniors and children together in a setting of learning and sharing.
Research shows that seniors' struggles with isolation, loneliness, and sense of purpose, are significantly improved when children are an integral part of their lives, especially when they have the opportunity to contribute their meaningful skills and wisdom to a younger generation. Through our partnership with The Rashi School, NewBridge Assisted Living Residents read to students, share life stories, celebrate holidays and enjoy other activities together. Through this interaction, our Residents enrich the children's lives as well as their own.
