Senior Living on Bellingham Hill, Chelsea

Developed in 1999, Senior Living on Bellingham Hill in Chelsea, MA offers supportive housing for low-income elders 62 years and over. The project, which was an adaptive reuse of the former Chelsea Memorial Hospital, was funded by the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). The site has evolved into a Serviced Enriched Housing environment where tenants age in place and enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

Bellingham Hill is comprised of 60 units: sixteen (16) one-bedroom and forty-four (44) studio apartments, each with its own kitchen area, private bathroom, living-dining area, and a 24-hour emergency call system. All apartments and common areas are designed to be fully accessible and to accommodate physical limitations.

Senior Living at Prouty, Spencer

In March 2010, MHPI opened Senior Living at Prouty in Spencer, MA. After being selected by the Town, MHPI used a combination of federal and state funding sources to transform the former David Prouty Intermediate School into thirty-five units of supportive housing for very poor seniors.

The building is comprised of one section built in 1888 and the other in 1938, and represented two very distinct architectural styles. Working closely with our development team, we were able to stay true to the characteristics of both, while creating 29 one-bedroom apartments, 6 studios, and a two-bedroom resident manager apartment. Each unit has a kitchen, private bathroom, living-dining area, and a 24-hour emergency call system. All apartments and common areas are designed to be fully accessible and to accommodate physical limitations.

As is the case at Bellingham Hill, our Certified Home Health Aides and Nursing Assistants provide a substantial number of tenants with various long-term supports that allow them to live independently.

The PATH Program at Hasseltine House, (Providing Access to Transitional Housing)
The PATH to Independent Living Program at Hasseltine House supports individuals who are looking for a stepping stone to move from their family home or residential school, to Hasseltine House, and then to a more independent living setting. Since Hasseltine House opened in 2013, 12 residents experienced growth in skills and independence and were able to move into their own apartment, a shared living setting with another resident as a roommate, or to smaller group/cluster living setting. The PATH program gives individuals and families a path to lower private pay housing costs, as skills are developed at Hasseltine House, allowing individuals to move on to these other affordable housing options.

JCR Group Homes, Norwood and Walpole

John “Jack” Roche partnered with Norwood Housing Authority in 2010 to open a home for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The residents have the freedom of living on their own while having the support of staff to assist with Activities of Daily Living. They bonded with their housemates as well as with neighbors in the community. The “Yellow House” became a successful housing model for independent living throughout Massachusetts and beyond. The need for this type of supportive housing continued to grow, three more homes were opened in Norwood in 2013. In 2014, the “Walpole House” opened, bringing our total number to five homes serving 44 residents. The homes continue to be an extension of Jack Roche and his family.
