Health Center Neighborhood


Many Levels of Care All on One Campus

Like the other neighborhoods in the Peabody Retirement Community campus, our health care neighborhood is filled with warmth, vitality, and home-like details that recognize and inspire the ageless spirit inside each person. Here, residents have access to a full range of health care options— skilled nursing, dementia and Alzheimer’s care, rehabilitation, and adult day memory care services—as well as opportunities to benefit from the 8 Dimensions of Wellness program.

Thoughtfully Designed Suites

Even our suites are leading edge, incorporating senior-friendly design principles used by Lorraine G. Hiatt, environmental gerontologist and winner of an AIA/Design for Aging Award. For example, indirect lighting is easier on aging eyes. Outlets are located higher on the wall. Showers include a chair instead of a bench. Faucets are off-center and more reachable. Handrails are shaped for older hands. Just a few of the details that help make Peabody’s Health Center Neighborhood such an outstanding choice.

Memory Enhancement

We never forget who they are to you
At The Frank and Laura Smock Memory Enhancement Center, we like to say we offer the most—most specialized, most attentive, most respectful, most all-encompassing care possible for those with Alzheimer’s or other memory disorders. The homelike design accentuates familiar settings and structured activities to help memory care residents experience more freedom, and to maintain and even enhance their memories.

Montessori programming and life stations focus on the use of remaining strengths and abilities. This gives residents the opportunity to use their hands and five senses to active and stimulate their minds through gardening, playing music, enjoying sports and sports memorabilia, and other pursuits.

The atmosphere is one of energy, stimulation, and generous natural light. Private rooms with private baths are available.


Adult Day Care

A break for caregivers
Looking after a person with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia can take a heavy physical and emotional toll. You want the best for your loved one, and you also need to care for yourself.

With A Day Away Adult Memory Care Services at Peabody, you can take the time to work, run errands, or simply have a break knowing your loved one’s day is planned and secure. From a few hours, to a full day. Companionship, personal care, medication administration, nutritious meals and snacks, and even transportation to and from A Day Away are provided.

At Peabody, we are here to help. For more on rates and hours, call (260) 982-8616.
