Offering Quality Care for More Than a Century

A Cozy New England Bed & Breakfast Lifestyle

Pond Home offers the comforts of home that many other retirement homes cannot. Although we provide supportive nursing care, our atmosphere is nothing like a medical facility. We offer warmth and independence and the opportunity to take part in events or have visitors over anytime! Being a 501c3, Pond Home offers a welcoming environment in a one-of-a-kind home in Wrentham, MA.


What does senior living at Pond Home mean?

Pond Home was incorporated in 1899 and has been serving the needs of local seniors since 1902. Pond Home was created to offer medical and social support to our residents. That means Pond Home has 24-hour on-site Registered or Licensed nursing staff available to care for residents and assess their current medical condition. This includes administering all medication, including eye drops and insulin.

How does Pond Home differ from Assisted Living?

Pond Home also has 24-hour on-site Certified Nursing Assistant staff available for around-the-clock safety checks of each resident, to remind residents of meal times, provide toileting reminders or assistance, assist residents in dressing, and encourage participation in activities.

In addition to caring for our residents’ medical needs, we also care for their dietary and social needs. All meals and snacks are planned under the supervision of a Registered Dietician, and our full-time Activities Director runs our daily activities program.

In contrast, Assisted Living facilities provide limited medical services.

Does Pond Home offer nursing care?

Pond Home offers nursing care in our Supportive Nursing Care area. This area is reserved for residents who require more medical support and supervision. This may include extensive assistance with eating, dressing, bathing, continence care, and management of daily activities if needed.

Does Pond Home offer other health and wellness services?

Pond Home offers many health and wellness services, including:

  • Administration of prescription and over-the-counter medication
  • Refilling prescriptions
  • Monitoring resident’s reactions to medications
  • Providing recommendations to the resident’s physician as needed
  • Around-the-clock safety checks
  • Meal reminders
  • Continence management

Staff also assists residents with dressing when needed and encourages participation in activities. Our monthly fee includes hairdressing, cable, personal laundry and linen service, and housekeeping services.

Does Pond Home offer primary care services?

Through trusted providers, Pond Home also offers on-site primary care services, x-ray, lab services, dental work, foot care, eye care, and ear care. That means residents may choose not to leave home for routine medical tests and services.

What happens if residents’ needs can no longer be met in Residential Care?

Pond Home’s Care Plan Team monitors each resident’s needs at least every 90 days. If it is determined a resident living in Residential Care can no longer have their needs met with dignity, they will be given first priority to move to our Supportive Nursing Section.

Can someone come to Pond Home for a short stay?

Most residents live here for many years, but Pond Home offers short-term stays. These stays can range from one week to three months and are offered based on room availability. A resident staying for a short time is called a Respite Guest and is provided furnished accommodations for the length of their stay.

How is Pond Home paid for?

Pond Home is paid through the resident’s private funds and long-term care insurance. Residents of Pond Home who meet qualifications are eligible for Veteran’s Benefits, which may increase their income. Others may qualify for a state program specific to Residential Care.

What happens when my money runs out?

As part of our application process Pond Home financially screens residents prior to admission. Part of Pond Home’s agreement with residents is that once they are qualified to move in and after their funds are depleted, they may remain in their home at Pond Home through the cost of their care needs. Our cost structure and financial expectations were set with the moderate-income senior in mind.

What are the visiting hours?

This is the resident’s home. Visit whenever you like, as we have no set hours.

If I become a resident, may I keep my car?

Absolutely, with free parking in the front lot!

We are licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Public Health as a Residential Care Facility, and we have a Supportive Nursing Care unit for those who need additional assistance. In the long-term care continuum, Pond Home is that sweet spot in the middle of assisted living and skilled nursing care. We are what most elders moving out of their houses would benefit from experiencing. We are not an alternative to their home, we are their home.
