Brookhouse Home is a residence for women licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Its technical designation as a Level IV Residential Care Home doesn’t begin to describe what the Brookhouse Home means to the 36 senior women who live there.

“It seems to me Janice has never been happier!”

Brookhouse residents are sister, aunts, mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and great aunts born between 1913 and 1955. They have enriched the world as teachers, nurses, artists, volunteers, dieticians, therapists, social workers, community activists and so much more. Brookhouse is a perfect place for a woman who may be tired of cooking for one, unable or uninterested in caring for a home by herself, having trouble keeping track of her medications, or just lonely. Brookhouse is where one can find comfort in being around other people, making new friends, and becoming more active physically and mentally, while having the health supports one needs as they age.

Though the stately building is a fine example of famed Salem architect Samuel McIntire’s work and the Derby Street location offers unparalleled views of Derby Wharf and Salem’s historic waterfront, it’s the care provided by our committed and compassionate staff that sets us apart. Treating our residents with respect, helping them maintain their independence, encouraging them to exercise their personal choices, keeping them safe – these are more than slogans. They are the principals we live by.
