Senior Health Services & Elder Care in North Andover, MA
EMPOWERING YOUR HIGHEST LEVEL OF HEALTH AND INDEPENDENCE
“When our 90-year-old parents needed more than Assisted living and absolutely needed a room together after 68 years of marriage, the staff worked with us to make it happen. Once there my parents were treated warmly and respectfully by the entire staff. They were well cared for in a very loving environment.” – The Driscoll Family
At Edgewood, our highest priority is to equip you to maintain your health and independence as long as possible.

Edgewood’s unique take on Assisted Living helps you stay where you want to be.
At Edgewood, our goal is to keep members in their homes as long as they choose and as long as they are safe. Our experience is that members who have made friends, enjoy the programs they attend and like dining in our restaurants do not want to make another move if home health or nursing home services are needed. We don’t believe in forcing anyone through the continuum of care. That’s why we offer a unique take on Assisted Living that we call Lifestyle Assistance.
With Lifestyle Assistance, we can provide the assistance you need to stay safe in your Independent Living cottage or apartment. Services include but are not limited to:
- Home health care
- Sick and wellness checks
- Overnight assistance
- Medication reminders and management
- Nursing and case management
- Assistance with showering and bathing
- In-home tasks such as laundry, changing bed linens, meal preparation, pet care and home organization
- Transportation escorts
Edgewood Lifestyle Assistance can provide help for as few as 30 minutes or as long as needed. Call us at 978-494-6876 to learn more.
