As part of the family-owned Edgewood Centre campus, the Inn at Edgewood is situated on 15 beautiful acres in the historic seaside town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We provide supervision for people who need some assistance with activities of daily living but do not require continual nursing or medical care. We also offer respite care on a space available basis to cover the short-term absence of a primary caregiver or someone thinking of moving in and wanting to fully experience the lifestyle before making a decision.
When assisted living is needed
Assisted living communities offer an environment for elders that provides help with medication management, meal preparation, laundry and housekeeping services and activities but less supervision and direct care than they might need from a nursing home.
Those who enter assisted living facilities can often do many activities on their own but prefer the comfort and security of knowing someone is there at a moment’s notice if needed. Medical monitoring and the structure which provides social engagement can provide great support while living independently.
An assisted living community can offer the peace of mind that your loved one is in good hands and is enjoying a quality of life filled with daily social interactions with peers and staff that is not available if living alone.
Here are a few reasons it may be time to consider assisted living if the following has become challenging:

Why Edgewood for assisted living?
The Inn at Edgewood features 11 private rooms, each with its own half bath, heat and air conditioning control, cable hook up and WiFi. Services are provided at an all-inclusive rate, with no unexpected add-on charges at the end of the month.
Although we are proud of our historic home and residential location, it is the individual care we provide to our residents that earns us a reputation as the right choice in assisted care.
