Our specialized memory care unit offers individualized nursing care for those with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and related disorders. We are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, and our nursing home is a member of the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts Chapter.
Here are other reasons why we excel in specialized memory care:
- Our new renovation and expansion has increased the amount of activity space and includes an activity kitchen for convenience and comfort.
- Outdoor patio and roof deck for gardening activities and to enjoy the nice weather.
- Newly renovated rooms with increased natural light and warm colors to sooth and rejuvenate resident’s mood.
- Our activities program is what really differentiates Mary Ann Morse from other facilities. We keep our residents busy throughout the day with “failure-free” activities, which helps alleviate feelings of frustration.
- We have an attending physician who is a certified wound specialist whose expertise is always available to the staff and residents.
- Our specially trained staff members provide a caring, therapeutic environment intended to optimize each resident’s level of cognitive and physical functioning while enhancing each person’s sense of emotional well-being.
- Our staff members work closely with family members to plan each resident’s care and provide education and support as needed.

Don’t have a pet?
Many families and volunteers bring their pets to visit among our patients and residents. We also sponsor visits from “barn babies”. Baby bunnies, baby goats, kittens and puppies all make “house calls” at Mary Ann Morse much to the delight of everyone! Of course, all visiting pets are carefully monitored for hygiene purposes.
Clinical research has clearly demonstrated that handling a pet or small animal reduces blood pressure, heart rate and other physical markers associated with stress.
