Special Features

In addition to the features standard to all 2Life Communities, at our Brighton campus you’ll enjoy our state-of-the-art auditorium, resale shop, and a trilingual library, as well as a host of programs and services that are unique to this community. These include:

  • Joyful Connections: A social drop-in club for residents with memory loss and their care partners. The program engages residents four times per week in a structured two-hour agenda that many say has changed their lives.

  • CaringChoices(TM): This program supports residents in the comfort and familiarity of their own 2Life apartments, providing home care services that make it possible for our more frail residents to remain at 2Life for as long as possible, and delay or prevent their need for nursing home placement.

  • Great Days for Seniors: A supportive, stimulating, and social environment for older adults who have memory loss and other serious conditions. Open five days a week, with staff bilingual in Russian and English. Residents can pay for this program privately or, if they are financially eligible, Medicaid will cover the costs.
