Massachusetts assisted living facility stresses natural light, access to nature

The facility is designed with gables, wrap-around porches, and colonnaded enclosed promenades, and set against a wooded backdrop and manicured landscaping

The 94,000-square-foot Stonebridge at Burlington, Mass. is the largest of The Northbridge Companies’ (Burlington, Mass.) assisted-living facilities. An article on the Environments for Aging magazine website gives a photo tour of the 110-living-unit community, which accommodates a spectrum of physical and mental levels of independence and acuity.

The facility, which opened in April, includes 26 apartments of the memory care sub-community organized around an enclosed outdoor courtyard and common areas. The remaining 84 apartments accommodate both independent residents as well as those fitting a traditional assisted-living profile, according to the article. Combining the two allows a greater degree of “aging in place" and avoids demoralizing and disorienting relocations based on changing acuities.

The facility is designed with gables, wrap-around porches, and colonnaded enclosed promenades, and set against a wooded backdrop and manicured landscaping, the article said.

Read the article and take the photo tour.
