Golden Pond provides comfortable, affordable studios, one-and two-bedroom apartment homes with fully equipped kitchens, spacious living areas and scenic views. Common areas include a library, a café and gardens. The community also features a 24-hour emergency response system, on-site health center, Healthy Living Wellness Program, scheduled transportation and diverse leisure activities. Our guiding principle is to create a community where residents can age with dignity. We invite you to discover the Golden Pond Difference.
Golden Pond’s Independent Lifestyle is for seniors who are able to live on their own in an apartment or house, but who want the conveniences of living within a community that provides services and amenities such as maintenance, housekeeping, social activities, dining, transportation, security, or the option of assistance with daily tasks or medical care if they ever need it later on.
Golden Pond is much more than a typical housing development for seniors. Golden Pond’s programs and services are designed specifically for individuals who live independently but may require some assistance with their daily care to maintain that independence.
Our residents needing assistance see that Golden Pond costs significantly less than many of their other options. We provide a range of services to resident, many 24 hours a day. Golden Pond is a rental community, which means residents can move in without giving up their life savings to pay an expensive buy-in fee. In this way Golden Pond can offer a luxurious combination of comfort, convenience and security for all of our residents.
Our staff is trained in the Habilitation approach to dementia care using the “Caring for People with Alzheimer’s Disease” program created by the Alzheimer’s Association/MA NH Chapter.

Golden Pond has created the most comprehensive on-site mental health service for the geriatric population by assembling an experienced multidisciplinary team of primary health and psychiatric professionals, and by implementing a psychosocial model with an emphasis on treating the “whole” resident.
Golden Pond understands that mental health can have a broad impact, so we are prepared to guide the resident and family toward alternative coping skills and care giving skills; evaluate medications; promote wellness; and strive to achieve the optimum level of functioning possible for each resident. That level of care and commitment can make a big difference to you and your loved one.
