About Leonard Florence Center for Living

The Leonard Florence Center for Living, a state-of-the-art, 100-bed skilled nursing home sponsored by the Chelsea Jewish Foundation, is now accepting resident applications for its February opening.

Located on Admiral's Hill in Chelsea, MA, the Leonard Florence Center for Living is the first urban Green House in the country, providing a home environment where residents will receive individualized nursing care. The complex consists of ten 7,000 square foot condominium-style homes, with each house containing ten private bedrooms arranged around a common living room, dining area and open kitchen.

Along with serving the elderly and providing short-term rehabilitation, the Leonard Florence Center for Living also will have separate high-tech residences to accommodate those living with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and multiple sclerosis as well as residences for those with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. All residents will have the opportunity to enjoy 'Main Street USA' on the first floor of the building, which will feature a cafe, bakery, deli, chapel, European Day Spa, and community area.

A team of nursing assistants will provide meals, laundry and personal care needs for the residents while a separate clinical support team made up of nurses, social workers, nutritionists and other healthcare professionals will visit the houses regularly to provide clinical services.

We Love Helping Families Find the Right Senior Care

"My adviser checked in with us periodically just to let us know she was there. I would not have been able to go through this alone and knowing she was there eased the burden of making this life-changing decision. Today my mom is happy and safe."

Tricia M., Found Alzheimer’s Memory Care in Quincy, MA

"My mother called me today to tell me, that at age 94, she is in love for the first time in her life. She loves the retirement community, has friends now, has activities, and she has blossomed. I was so sure she was headed for a dementia unit and suddenly, she is this new person. I couldn't have done any of this without your help and support every step of the way. You have been amazingly helpful and supportive."

Caroline L., Found Assisted Living in Boston, MA
