Assisted Living Neighborhood


The Right Blend of Support and Independence

In the neighborhood known as The James B. Peabody Inn for Assisted Living, residents can live as independently as they please knowing someone is always nearby to help with activities of daily living such as grooming and medication management.

Our one and two bedroom suites are designed to offer comfortable and gracious living with numerous common areas and outdoor courtyards for social activities and relaxation. A short walk down the hall leads you to activities, friends and the Billie Jane Strauss Wellness Center. Area hospitals are located just minutes away click here for a map.
