Resident Life At Leonard Florence Center for Living
165 Captains Row
Chelsea, MA 02150
Residents have many social and recreational options. The trained nursing staff provides light housekeeping, personal laundry, and meal preparation. A key advantage of the Leonard Florence Center is that residents rise when they want, eat when they want and plan their own schedules. It’s just like living at home — except here you are also getting the very best care possible. You’ll find that our staff member quickly seem like family!
Each home features a central communal space near the kitchen and a dining table for 10. There’s also an electrical hearth, where 10 residents live together in private rooms. The shahbazim are assigned full-time to a specific home, instead of being shared by the entire facility, which brings a high level of comfort and familiarity between residents and staff members. In addition to delicious and nutritious meals a day, coffee, tea and snacks are provided according to each resident’s preferred time. There are no nurse’s stations or medical carts. Our competent and compassionate caregivers provide individualized skilled nursing home care, 24 hours a day, with all the comforts of home.
A Real Home
The prevailing goal of the Leonard Florence Center was to create a “real” home that provides exceptional care, but also supports those seeking to redefine the worth and meaning of late life and those living with debilitating diseases. On the first floor of the Leonard Florence Center — or “Main Street” as it is often called — residents and families are able to take in the beautiful aesthetic and design of the facility. Upon entering, you will see a beautiful waterfall in the entryway and a welcoming reception and lobby area.
