Caring for your health. Supporting your independence.

Edgewood’s highest goal is to empower you to maintain your health and independence for as long as possible. Toward that goal, our LifeCare community in North Andover, Massachusetts offers services and amenities designed to encourage whole-person wellness. In addition to a wide array of fitness and wellness opportunities, we offer in-home resident services that can enable you to remain in the apartment or cottage home you’ve grown to love. And, while we offer a full continuum of on-site healthcare services including short-term rehabilitation, assisted living, memory support, and long-term skilled nursing care, you can rest assured that, at Edgewood, you’ll never be pushed through a predetermined sequence of healthcare levels.

While residents of Edgewood always have guaranteed priority admission to our healthcare services, direct admission for those who are not already residents is accepted on a space-available basis.

“All the reasons we moved to Edgewood — but hoped not to need for 10 or 15 years — happened in the third or fourth week and everything worked exactly as we had hoped. When there was a health problem, the nursing staff was on top of it and said, ‘We’ve got you covered.’”
