With the growing concern about the spread of Coronavirus and how it may impact our communities, the health and safety of our residents remain our top priority on all the campuses at Deaconess Abundant Life Communities. Infection control has always been a top priority for our organization and our dedication to providing a safe environment for our residents, and the staff who care for them, is unwavering. We continue to diligently monitor information and guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We remain committed to inform and educate, while remaining available to answer any questions residents and families may have.

Traditional Independent and Assisted Living Apartments and Cottages

Built in 2004, our 30 apartments and 12 connected cottages are certified for both independent and assisted living. This allows residents to live independently until the time they need assistance. If the time comes where you are in need of assistance, we come right to you with our 24 hour licensed staff.

Our apartments and cottages offer access to most of the community via an enclosed corridor system. Rockridge provides singles and couples, 62 or older, with a rewarding lifestyle.  Established in 1971, the Rockridge grounds are beautifully landscaped and surrounded by lush countryside, where residents enjoy walks along paved walkways and quiet nature trail.
