Workers have broken ground on a $9 million project that will expand part of the five-year-old Heritage at Brentwood retirement community off Concord Road. The plan is for the development's Somerfield Health Center to grow to 66 beds from 30 and be divided into a number of areas focused on specific conditions.
In addition to memory care, the other four neighborhoods will encompass primarily private rooms and suites and allow for varying levels of care, in line with the company’s Centered Around Resident-Empowered Services (CARES) program to meet residents’ diverse health care needs. Each neighborhood will be equipped with a dining room, kitchen and activity room.
