Life Here

Life here is Life at Home

Combining the freedom of independent living with round-the-clock services, The Fitch provides the best that senior living and assisted care has to offer. We provide independence and community, safety, flexible quality care and affordability on spacious and serene waterfront property, 8 miles north of Boston, in desirable Melrose.

When people tour our beautiful residence they often state that we are a “hidden gem” in the heart of Melrose. Located near the center of town and situated on the banks of Ell Pond, our residents enjoy gorgeous views in a quiet neighborhood conveniently located just behind the library and close to main street shopping, restaurants, churches and with easy access to transportation.

Our great community is measured by the quality of people that call this home.

Our residents are as vibrant as the city we are located in and are highly connected to it. Accomplished, active, connected, and cultured, they add value to the lives they engage with and derive a strong sense of belonging.

For these incredible men and women, we offer a comfortable environment where they can continue to live independently with support if they need it, with access to a community they cherish and value.

Modern Living, Timeless Tradition

We take great pride in our residence and continuously keep it updated to ensure all the modern amenities are available while maintaining the comforts of home.

Comfortable residential rooms are just the beginning of what makes The Fitch so special, from the beautiful Victorian entrance to the Association Room with its marble fireplace and gilded mirror that provides a wonderful spot for a bridge game or writing a letter. The sun room always has a puzzle in progress and is a good place to read and relax or just enjoy the view. 

We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Our Home!
