Why the name change?

Enhanced Care

Our frailest residents, and those with memory loss, benefit from specialized programs available at some of our campuses. With this additional support, they can continue to live with us.

Adult Day Health
This program provides a supportive, stimulating, and social environment for older adults on our Brighton campus who have memory loss and other serious conditions. It’s open six days a week and has Russian/English bilingual staff. Residents can pay for this program privately or, if they are financially and medically eligible, Medicaid will cover the costs.

CaringChoices™
This program enables residents to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own 2Life apartments. While services vary slightly for each location, the overall goal of the program is to make it possible for our more frail residents to remain at 2Life and delay or prevent their need for assisted living or nursing home placement.

Residents of our Brighton campus can participate in the Congregate Housing Services Program (CHSP). The program offers a nutritious kosher lunch, escorts to medical appointments, and "house calls" which offer personal care and light housekeeping assistance, including medication reminders, help preparing for bed, toileting, warming up meals, washing dishes, and taking out the trash.

Residents of our Coleman House in Newton may receive in-home services coordinated by a designated service coordinator, who works closely with the Aging Services Access Point (ASAP) for Newton. The service coordinator is on campus at specific times each week to explain and coordinate services for residents if needed. CaringChoices can provide subsidies on a sliding fee scale based on a resident's income and ability to manage daily tasks.

Joyful Connections
This program is a social drop-in club for our Brighton residents with memory loss and their care partners. The program engages residents five times per week in a structured two-hour agenda that many say has changed their lives.
