ABOUT US

We set out to create a place with all of the comfort, safety, and hospitality of traditional assisted living, without the overwhelming size and institutional feel.

In the fall of 2016, Commonwealth House opened its doors to the families of Rhode Island! Not quite assisted living, and not quite home care. We call it a “Care Home”…a residence, in a residential neighborhood, where a small group of seniors resides and receive all of the care and amenities of assisted living in a home-like setting.

 

This is Commonwealth House!

Our Story

IMG_4426.JPG
OUR HOME

Commonwealth House feels like an upscale residence because it is in fact just that, situated in a residential neighborhood. Before we converted it to an Assisted Living community, it was the home to generations of the same loving family. Now we have brought a new family to this house, and are excited to see new generations grow and thrive here.

OUR GOAL

At Commonwealth House, it is our goal to provide care that most closely resembles what one would find at home with family. Our skilled staff is fully licensed in their field, but at the same time, they are given the freedom to engage our 10 residents as people, not numbers.  Our small scale allows us to do away with the corporate structure and hierarchy found at most assisted living facilities. This way we can concentrate on the person, providing the most personalized care possible to the resident.  Our residents are not numbers, they are our family. With a typical resident to staff ratio of 5-1, and a maximum population of 10 residents, no one is ignored or forgotten.

OUR LIFESTYLE

The kitchen and dining area is the central space in the community, and is open 24 hours a day for residents to dine or enjoy the company of residents, staff or family. Meals are created by our private chef with the help of our staff, further conveying the feeling of everyone having a role in the care of the resident.  Two beautiful common areas and a small library enjoy designer touches along with large windows and comfortable seating. Ample grounds make Commonwealth House somewhere you’ll be proud to bring your family for a visit.  Our 8 spacious bedrooms are often equipped with private full bathrooms, otherwise a large full bath is shared. The community is fully equipped with all the safety systems required of large assisted living facilities, but installed in an unobtrusive way that does not interfere with the home-like feel of the space.
