North Hill offers three modern living communities – Crescent Heights for independent living, Vista Terrace for enhanced living, and Pines Edge for skilled nursing and long term care – all on a single 59-acre campus. We’ve been here since 1984, upholding the traditions and values of community, wellness and healthy aging that our residents have come to rely on, while staying at the vanguard of senior living with innovative and inspired programming that reflects current trends and preferences in standards of lifestyle and care. North Hill is and always has been, a community that combines and encourages active autonomy with one of the most reliable continuums of care in New England. Our residents can maintain the individual lifestyles they are used to with access to support, activities, and amenities that help them live rich, fulfilling lives that are full of new or rediscovered purpose. Here at North Hill, residents enjoy constant cultural enrichment and intellectual stimulation, 5-star dining, and social interaction – all in a modern, updated, secure environment that promotes healthy aging. They can choose to fill their days with health and wellness, technology, nature, hobbies and interests, and still see all of their medical needs (short-term rehab, long-term care, memory support) fulfilled through our full-service care options and cost-deferring programs. Crescent Heights is the lively heart of the North Hill Retirement Community. Seniors who experience life in these luxurious apartments enjoy the freedom they have always cherished and discover ways to explore a vibrant new life and purpose in everything they do. Crescent Heights is the independent epicenter of our thriving retirement community. North Hill is a modern retirement community for the modern day. Arts, literature, education, communities with people who share your passions are part of the experience at North Hill. On-site banking, transportation services, exquisite gourmet dining, health and wellness facilities – we have attended to every detail to help keep your mind and body healthy and active. Your retirement community will be your new home. So it is imperative to choose a place that has activities that will regularly stimulate your mind and engage your senses. North Hill Retirement Community does all of that and more with our year-round series of exciting courses, lectures, and events that are open to residents and potential residents alike. A visit is a great way to sample the campus.
