Be Unique, Live Unique. Golden Pond has been a pioneer in Senior Living Options since it opened its doors in 1994. It was the first free-standing assisted living facility in New England, the first assisted living community to have an Alzheimer’s Special Care Program and the first to also offer Adult Day Health.

Throughout the years Golden Pond has kept to the vision of providing residential alternatives for seniors who may otherwise need nursing home level of care. This is evident in the development of our Special Care Programs for those who require additional care and services due to cognitive or behavioral needs.

Golden Pond offers an affordable assisted living option, with a variety of floor plans in a comfortable setting that is much more than a typical housing development for seniors. Golden Pond’s programs and services are designed specifically for individuals who live independently but may require some assistance with their daily care to maintain that independence.

Golden Pond is a rental community, which means residents can move in without giving up their life savings to pay an expensive buy-in fee. In this way Golden Pond can offer a luxurious combination of comfort, convenience and security for all of our residents.

Our residents needing assistance see that Golden Pond costs significantly less than many of their other options. We provide a range of services to residents, many 24 hours a day.
