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.

Myths About Assisted Living 2



What is Assisted Living, Myth 2


Myth #2- The Food is bad and activities are boring - Generally, in the past, all facilities had a limited amount of choices and food distributors. There was once an approach to a one style fits all calendar.


Myth 2.1, The Food is Bad Myth 2.2, The Activities are Boring

At Rockridge, our Kitchen sources local products, as we live in such an abundant valley filled with variety and choices.  From there the menu is based on seasonal components and Resident choice.  Food allergies and sensitivities can also be accommodated

Residents lives and interests range widely from professional, family and personal interest.  This is reflected in the monthly calendar, designed by our residents.  Depending on the month there could be outings to plays, restaurants, lectures, painting, gardening, book clubs, scrabble, bridge and other card games, and walking groups.  Did I mention the exercise groups and also the music, sweet music on weekends and throughout the month?  We are fortunate to have our residents want to lecture and perform for us all.
