MARLBOROUGH – There’s always something going on at Christopher Heights of Marlborough.

The assisted-living facility, located in the heart of Marlborough, has activities of all types for residents to enjoy. There’s an opportunity for exercise every morning, chances to pursue hobbies or interests throughout the day, and, of course, the time to participate in “happy hour” at the pub, which gives residents an opportunity to catch up with friends.

Residents always have the opportunity to get involved, and there’s always something new to try.

“It’s a very active community. We’re big on routine, and we try to keep activities fresh,” Director of Marketing and Admissions Stephanie Nordstrom told the Community Advocate. “If we get new residents, we ask them about things they like to do, so we can provide activities that these people enjoy. In general, we have about one entertainer a week, and we have one trip a week – for lunch, ice cream, shopping or live music. Lots of fun little local trips.”

And while Christopher Heights is filled with fun activities, it’s also the type of place residents can feel at home. Each of the building’s 83 private apartments features amenities like a walk-in shower and full-size refrigerator and freezer. The apartments are centered around shared spaces including the salon, pub and the recently remodeled dining rooms. The kitchen features chef-prepared meals.

The building is warm, cozy and homelike, allowing residents to feel comfortable and find community.

“There’s lots of engagement that happens. When you’re home and alone for most of the time, it’s very isolating and it’s not good for your brain or health. Having that engagement with other humans throughout the day – it’s really important,” Nordstrom said.

While the community is social and lively, giving residents the freedom to live with dignity in their own space, Christopher Heights provides all the services you’d want from an assisted living facility. The building’s 24-hour staff can help residents with all types of tasks – even if it’s something as simple as opening a pickle jar.

When needs become more complex as residents grow older, the staff remains ready to help, assisting residents with their medication, getting dressed, bathing, taking out the trash and more. Christopher Heights aims to help residents “age in place,” Nordstrom said. As residents age, the gaps between what they’re able to do and what needs to be done widen; Christopher Heights aims to close that gap.

Christopher Heights’ commitment to residents also extends beyond caregiving.

“We offer a spend-down option. Other assisted-living options in Massachusetts are not set up to deal with residents’ financial situations changing. Essentially, it’s pay to play or you can’t stay. For us, we actually work with the residents and work with the state to allow the residents to stay even if their financial situation changes, as it does for most people at that age,” said Nordstrom.

Christopher Heights of Marlborough is located on 99 Pleasant St. in Marlborough. For more information, please visit https://christopherheights.com/marlborough/about or call (508) 281-8001.
