Avita of Needham is a Northbridge Assisted Living Community nestled within a quaint residential area of Needham, MA minutes from downtown Needham and I-95. Avita of Needham is Metrowest Massachusetts’ first dedicated memory and dementia care community. The name, Avita, which translates to “For Life,” was inspired by our desire to create a safe and fulfilling environment where nurturing caregivers recognize each resident as a special and unique individual. Just because an individual may be coping with physical challenges or memory impairment does not mean they have lost their spirit. Our goal is simple—to make a positive difference in people’s lives by creating a special place where residents can thrive and families can have peace of mind. That place is Avita.
A safe and secure community where specially trained caregivers can support residents living with dementia and memory loss; with a program tailored to each individual’s wants and needs.
Private and semi-private apartments in a separate and secure environment to support residents with Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments.
Avita’s surroundings are thoughtfully designed to be homelike and familiar. Apartments are clustered in small neighborhoods to minimize confusion and agitation and maximize the sense of freedom and comfort.
At Avita, we believe nature plays an important role in the health and happiness of our residents. Each neighborhood is designed with a safe and secure outdoor garden area with pathways for wandering, opportunities for gardening and various seating areas to soak in the sights and sounds of nature.
At Avita of Needham we believe it is time for the next generation of senior living. Seniors want more services, more amenities, and more thoughtfully designed environments that work with their age, not against it. We keep those ideas firmly in mind in every decision we make. We believe that in everything we do, our emphasis needs to be on living well and loving life.
Our services and programs are designed to allow you to spend more quality time together and less time worrying about the care of your loved one. We offer comfortable spaces for quiet visits, game rooms for fun with the grandkids and catered dining to celebrate family traditions.
At Avita we take the time to get to know our residents and their families in order to fully appreciate what is truly important to each individual. Genuine caring is about the tangibles such as medications and help day-to-day personal care. As important are the intangibles, those things a family knows, such as remembering that your mother loves a cup of Earl Gray tea in the late afternoon or that dad enjoys his morning walk. At Avita, the feeling of family is essential to the well-being of our residents.
