Memory Support in North Andover
Celebrating Rich Histories. Celebrating Life. Memory Support at The Woodlands Inn.
The Woodlands Inn at Edgewood believes in celebrating the lives of resident members in need of Memory Support. Each person who walks through our doors seeking care brings with them a rich history of a life well-lived. We help preserve that history with the care and dignity everyone deserves. Those looking for Memory Care near Boston, MA, understand that caring for loved ones in need of Memory Support requires patience, empathy and tough decisions. That’s why Edgewood is here to make things a little easier.
Edgewood has been certified by the Hearthstone Foundation as a Center of Excellence, one of only 10 Hearthstone-Certified Centers of Excellence in the U.S. and the only one in New England. Every member of Edgewood’s dedicated staff is trained in the Hearthstone Foundation’s I’m Still Here™ approach to help develop a warm and welcoming environment that feels like home.
Our specialized Memory Support households are a welcome alternative to traditional, and often clinical, care found in other communities that offer Memory Support in North Andover. Long hallways are eliminated, making it easier for resident members to move independently. Our resident members also enjoy access to a garden courtyard, the perfect place for fresh air or peace and quiet. Light can have a profound effect on those experiencing memory loss, so we’ve adjusted the brightness of each household to support their care. For privacy and comfort, resident members have their own private suite, located close to the central hearth area to foster a sense of community and provide access to a wide array of amenities. In addition to a robust activity schedule, resident members can help with meal preparation, laundry or any other daily task that helps them feel at home. This Small House model promotes greater wellness and quality of life by combining two factors that dramatically impact both happiness and independence: a close sense of community and exceptional care.
The Woodlands Inn is open to all who need Memory Support, not just resident members of Edgewood. If health needs change, our resident members and their loved ones can maintain full peace of mind thanks to priority access to discounted rates on the full continuum of care, including Skilled Nursing and Rehab, at The Meadows Health Center, located on the Edgewood campus.
