Of course you want to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible. So it simply makes sense you’d want to continue your independence on your own terms, and in your own home.

At Essex Meadows, we offer assisted living services in the comfort and privacy of your apartment or cottage. You continue to enjoy the best of Essex Meadows — your cottage or apartment, every service and amenity we offer, and all our programs and clubs and opportunities.

We deliver any extra support you may need, in your home, in a way that’s personal and one-on-one. The care is provided by the quality staff of our Resident Health Services Department, or by a licensed home care provider.

Types of assisted living services include:

  • Assistance (upon request) with bathing, dressing and personal grooming
  • Oversight by a medical director and registered nurse
  • Medication management

It’s an innovative model for assisted living in the Essex, CT, area — but we believe it’s the best way to blend care with independence and privacy.
