Independent Living

Assisted Living

At Commonwealth Senior Living at Monument Ave, assisted living balances the active independence that our residents want with the 24-hour support they need.

It’s the ideal combination. We realize that while the need for support may have brought our residents to us, their desire to live an active, fulfilling and engaging lifestyle hasn’t changed at all.


Personalized Care

At Commonwealth, the care we deliver is personalized. We know that no two residents have the same needs, abilities or preferences. To deliver the right amount of care and support, we create individual care plans for each resident. Our specially trained caregivers meet directly with residents, their family members and personal physicians to develop the most appropriate care plans. The care plans deliver the care that is needed – perhaps assisting the resident with getting dressed or bathing or helping them get around the community, but also identifies and supports each individual’s retained abilities, promoting independence and dignity.
