Assisted Living Specializing in Memory Care

We know the challenges families face when someone you care about is coping with memory impairment. The name, Avita, which translates to “for life,” was inspired by our desire to create a safe and fulfilling environment where nurturing caregivers recognize each resident as a special and unique individual with varied wants and needs. Just because an individual may be coping with [physical challenges or memory impairment does not mean they have lost their spirit. Our goal is simple – to make a positive difference in people’s lives by creating a special place where residents can thrive, and families can have peace of mind.

Many Avita of Needham residents and their families are originally local to the Metro-Boston area. We proudly serve the greater Needham community.

I have been so impressed with the care my loved one receives at Avita of Needham, and my admiration has only increased during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The administration, nursing team, activities assistants and aides are top notch, always available to answer questions and always responsive to any concerns. Most of all I like that Avita is a happy place, making our loved ones feel nurtured, respected and engaged.
