Providence House at Corey Park offers independent and assisted living for people age 62 and over who want or need supportive services. The non-sectarian community was co-developed by the Archdiocese of Boston Planning Office for Urban Affairs and E.A. Fish Associates, and is managed by Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group, a trusted name in senior housing and health services for over 50 years. The community offers below-market rents to income qualified individuals. The Beechwood Program for those with memory impairment, and Beacon Center Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, will open in 2005.
Located near Cleveland Circle at the 5.5 acre site of the former St. John of God Hospital, Providence House is readily accessible to seniors and their families from all Boston neighborhoods, as well as the neighboring communities of Brookline, Cambridge, Newton and Watertown.
The peaceful campus setting features a community park, walking paths, mature landscaped grounds and a gazebo. The surrounding neighborhood is comprised of family homes, apartments and condominiums and is within easy walking distance to banks, retail shops and the MBTA Green line on Commonwealth Avenue. Medical services are available at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center located less than one mile away.
Residents enjoy furnishing their apartment homes, which feature kitchenette, private bathroom, wall-to-wall carpeting, window treatments and an emergency call system.
