Assisted Living Residence at Rogerson House

string(1) "2"

Rogerson House follows the Alzheimer’s Association’s philosophy of “habilitation.” Our staff helps residents achieve success by meeting them at their highest functional level. Social activities become therapeutic experiences that enhance the moment — the here and now.

Warm, Unique Environment

The Rogerson House layout maximizes the infusion of daylight. Residents live in single or companion suites, each with its own full bath. Safe, secure and attractive walking areas, both inside and out, give residents the greatest amount of independence. Homelike kitchens and dining rooms offer familiar daily activities.

Expansive Program, Education & Excursions

Our therapeutic programs include music and art therapy, poetry and songwriting, yoga and movement, individual fitness training, walks around Jamaica Pond, discussion groups, support groups, intergenerational programs, community programs, pet therapy, and gardening.

With our close proximity to Boston, we offer our residents cultural excursions to the theater, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Pops, fine restaurants, movies, and current events. Families are welcome to accompany residents on excursions and participate in family gatherings, including holiday parties and summer cookouts.

Professional Care Team & Health Support Services

The interdisciplinary care team has a depth and breadth of knowledge that sets Rogerson House apart. A geriatric care team, including a physician and nurse practitioner affiliated with one of Boston’s leading geriatric care hospitals, provides in-house primary health care. Rogerson House has its own nursing team on duty, as well as an RN on-call 24/7. Resident care assistants oversee daily care needs and provide services such as medication, nutrition, blood pressure monitoring, and diabetic supervision. The combination of higher nursing and direct care staffing ratios define our non-profit mission.

Respite Care

Our residence welcomes guests for short-term visits. Families benefit from a temporary respite, and guests enjoy the same services and amenities as our assisted living residents.
