Everyday Support to Make Every Day Fulfilling Assisted Living at NewBridge on the Charles
Focus on what matters most to you, with a renewed sense of independence. It may sound surprising, but you can actually be more independent at NewBridge assisted living than where you are now because you donâ€™t have to worry about doing taxing daily chores. Instead, we can do them for you, focusing on the specific things that challenge you most. And yet there is a lot more to life at NewBridge than just receiving personalized assistance. Here you have access to exceptional daily programming, including professional musical performances, visits from authors and artists, and lectures and presentations by historians and scientists. In addition, residents
love our multigenerational programs with students from our on-campus neighbor, the K-8 Rashi School, as well as many other area schools and universities. We also offer evidence-based fitness programs, trips to area attractions, transportation to shopping centers, nightly film showings, a performance center, indoor pool, a well-stocked library, and much more. At NewBridge, you can continue to do the things you enjoy most, be intellectually stimulated and challenged, and contribute to our vibrant community to whatever extent you prefer.

A continuum of care for all your current and potential needs NewBridge on the Charles offers a comprehensive continuum of care that encompasses independent living; assisted living and memory care assisted living; our on-campus Hebrew Rehabilitation Center, which is licensed as a long-term chronic care hospital; and our five-star-rated Rehabilitation Services Unit (RSU), which provides post-acute health care. We also offer onsite medical services through our Harvard Medical School-affiliated practice that includes a geriatrician and specialists in podiatry, audiology, and psychiatry who provide world-class, concierge-like care.
You will receive up to one hour of personal, one-on-one care each day, which can be delivered all at once or in 15-minute increments that correspond to your needs throughout the day; this is typically in the form of assistance with activities of daily living and helping you to manage your medications. If extra care is required, it can easily be arranged. Beyond the care you receive to maximize your independence, our director of nursing and well-trained staff monitor your health to promote wellness and prevent hospitalization.
Having these services expertly delivered at NewBridge means less disruption for you should your health needs change. If you ever need rehab or long-term chronic care, you can receive it at NewBridge, which allows for continuity of care and minimal disruption to your life. We also offer respite stays andâ€”if ever neededâ€”onsite palliative and hospice care.
