Hebrew SeniorLife announced this week the opening of the 256 independent living units at NewBridge on the Charles, a state-of-the-art continuing care retirement community located on the 162-acre Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Campus in Dedham, Massachusetts. The $485 million dollar project, developed by Boston-based nonprofit Hebrew SeniorLife, covers over one million square feet of living space. NewBridge’s independent residents living in the community’s cottages, villas and apartments began moving into their homes this week and the assisted living units are scheduled to open in July. NewBridge on the Charles features many attributes that set it apart from other continuing care retirement communities. Hebrew SeniorLife invested more money into the technology at NewBridge than has ever been spent on any CCRC in the country. It also has more unit types to choose from than any other CCRC in the country, and the largest collection of original art.
“The opening of NewBridge on the Charles is the culmination of seven years of work by Hebrew SeniorLife’s board, donors, staff and volunteers,” said Len Fishman, president and chief executive officer of Hebrew SeniorLife. “Each day our team works to change the way people think about aging, and we are confident that NewBridge will bring us one step closer to fulfilling this mission.”
