WHY MARY'S MEADOW?

What is the small-house concept?

Mary’s Meadow comprises four separate houses, each of which has accommodations for 10 residents. All rooms are private, with full baths, and each house has a shared living room, dining room, den and kitchen. This intimate environment makes a real difference for our residents, it encourages interaction and socialization while affording privacy. The four houses are connected to a central chapel, open to people of all faiths, providing a calm and quiet space for prayer and reflection.

Mary’s Meadow: Revolutionizing nursing home care

The opening of Mary’s Meadow at Providence Place revolutionized delivery of long-term skilled nursing care, as well as short-term rehabilitation services. This innovative social model has proven to be as attractive to those receiving care as it is to their families, physicians and caregivers. It’s an approach that empowers our residents to be as independent and self-reliant as possible, in a setting that feels like home.

Nationally recognized for the quality of our care

Our innovative approach earns us high marks for the quality of our care. Mary’s Meadow is consistently ranked among the top nursing homes in the entire state, earning a five-star rating from U.S. News & World Report and a Women’s Choice Award for Best Extended Care & Nursing Homes in Massachusetts. We have also received the Excellence in Action Award for Superior Commitment to Customer Satisfaction for 5 consecutive years, 2010-2015.

Most importantly, our residents and their families give us high marks for the personalized care and attention they receive here at Mary’s Meadow.
