Person-Centered Assisted Living and Memory Care
Brookdale North Chelmsford is a beautifully maintained senior living community in North Chelmsford, MA. We provide Assisted Living and Memory Care services, including Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
With a continuum of support, our loving family provides assistance for those needing help with daily activities. Residents have the security of knowing they can remain here, in their home, without having to relocate and separate from their familiar surroundings and friendships, should their needs change over time.
We are conveniently located in a quiet residential area, close to local shopping and restaurants as well as lovely Silver Lake and Friendship Park.
Our residents can also take advantage of all the wonderful beaches of Northern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire which are just a short drive away. Several medical facilities are also close by, including Lowell General Hospital, Saints Medical Center and a rehabilitation facility, if ever needed.
Here our residents and in many cases, their pets, enjoy a socially active retirement community. Yet, should you need a helping hand from our warm and friendly staff, we also offer complete Assisted Living services, tailor-made to your needs. Our services focus on wellness to help you maintain your health, so you can live as independently as possible.
Active and Engaging Lifestyle
With a family-friendly atmosphere and strong sense of community, North Chelmsford feels like home the moment you walk through our doors. Spacious apartments ensure each resident maintains their privacy, dignity and independence while common areas offer opportunities to engage in social interactions.
Group spaces include a lovely dining room, library and family room, which give residents and their loved ones an opportunity to get to know one another.
An exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs and community outings, encourage exploring new interests and share personal favorites with friends and neighbors.
The Life Enrichment Program at Brookdale was designed to add joy, purpose and meaning to the lives of our residents. Our retirement activities and programs reflect the talents, interests and personalities of each resident while also offering new experiences that will challenge and keep them mentally healthy.
Substantial investments in Brookdale’s culinary program and staffing allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From a Culinary Arts Training Program for chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, we’ve created one of the industry’s leading dining organizations.
Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to offer satisfying entrees while meeting dietary requirements. Each meal consists of a selection of delicious choices, sensational service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our Memory Care community. Residents all sit together at the same time and same table each day.
Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so that they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.

Levels of Care
As the population ages, more people are discovering assisted senior living and the peace of mind we offer. Our community’s approach focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs, understanding the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customizing a solution that puts that life within reach.
Brookdale North Chelmsford offers two levels of care:
- Assisted Living – where residents receive personal assistance and support with daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, along with amenities for housekeeping and linen services, transportation and recreations. Our individualized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support, with respect for personal preferences.
- Memory Care – was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia. Associates help residents create daily moments of success, offering opportunities for them to experience a sense of purpose and meaning. A gently daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
Personalized Approach to Assisted Living
There may come a time when you or your loved may need additional help with daily tasks. We offer Assisted Living care so you’ll be prepared, if or when you need more assistance.
It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents, so we can understand their needs; then we establish clinical, dining and program support that works for them in a meaningful way. We partner with our residents, recognizing their individual needs and preferences, and adjust services to meet their changing needs. So whether it’s a unique snack, the celebration of a favorite season or a lifelong interest, we value the privilege of knowing our residents and building relationships with them to create a truly personalized living experience.
With our exclusive personal service system, you can live your life the way you want with the right care at the right time, delivered by the right people. Through years of experience serving seniors, we have developed a process that allows us to customize personal care plans for our Assisted Living residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
More About Memory Care
Brookdale’s exceptional programs provide a secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe that no matter where an individual is in their life, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self. Providing excellent dementia care is a complex task that requires ongoing guidance and teaching for our staff members. All of our highly trained associates receive initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approach and care for seniors with dementia.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. The whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs and be a part of a solution.
Strong Professional Relationships and Staff
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. Our community has visiting physicians, rehabilitation and home health partners offering physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and additional medical services which allow you to remain in your Assisted Living or Memory Care apartment and receive the exact services you need.
We take pride in the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management. Our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please while respecting individual desires. All of the services we provide are customized to personal and unique needs, by creating a way of life that enriches the lives of others through compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Hospice is also always welcome. We can take residents to various rehabilitation facilities in the area, should they require more intensive therapy. Occasionally, local home health agencies sponsor health fairs at our community, offering a variety of free screenings to our residents.
