Hebrew SeniorLife and Navigator Homes of Martha’s Vineyard Collaborate with the Signing of Management Agreement for New Elder Care Facility

New skilled nursing care and rehabilitation center scheduled to open on Martha’s Vineyard in Summer 2025.

Boston, MA — Navigator Homes of Martha’s Vineyard (NHMV) and Hebrew SeniorLife have announced the signing of a management agreement for the new skilled nursing care and rehabilitation center that, pending final local and state approval, is scheduled to open in  Summer 2025 on Martha’s Vineyard.  

The facility, in the Green House model, will provide skilled nursing and rehabilitation service by highly trained care staff focusing on the whole person – medical, emotional, and social needs. NHMV is committed to offering a center that will provide an environment where seniors can thrive, by eliminating the three plagues of aging: loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Navigator Homes of Martha’s Vineyard in support of this innovative Green House model of elder care,” said Mary Moscato, FACHE, President, Hebrew SeniorLife Health Care Services and Hebrew Rehabilitation Center.

“We are honored to enter into this agreement with Hebrew SeniorLife, which has set the gold standard for senior care in the Boston area,” said NHMV Treasurer Polly Brown.   

About NHMV
Scheduled to open in Summer 2025, Navigator Homes of Martha’s Vineyard plans to house  people in 5 homes with 13 or 14 residents each. Each resident will have a private room with bathroom. In beautiful, well-appointed, spacious communal areas, residents will share living room, kitchen, dining rooms, and other enriching and recreational spaces, both inside and outside. Outside space will be a pocket park thoughtfully landscaped with native species.

All current Residents from Windemere Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (the only skilled nursing home on Martha’s Vineyard) will have the option to relocate/move into the new Edgartown-based, Green House model community. Navigator Homes of MV will encourage all Windemere residents who qualify for skilled nursing care to move to the new community, including those individuals seeking short-term rehabilitation after hospitalization, as well as those seeking Long Term Care. Navigator will accept MassHealth, Medicare, and Private Pay.
