I’m looking forward to being a part of the SALMON team. After many years working in health and retirement communities in various positions, including Resident engagement, administration, and leadership roles, I’m excited to bring my extensive knowledge to the Natick campus. I have a passion for working with seniors and look forward to getting to know the Residents and staff members of this great community.
Director of Sales
Twenty years ago, I suddenly found myself as a caregiver to my mother, who had a terminal disease and vascular dementia. Shortly after she passed away, I started working at an assisted living community and have spent the past fifteen years helping families as they work through the process of choosing an assisted living community. Having worked for some larger national and regional companies, I am thrilled to be working for SALMON, a family-owned company with a reputation for providing excellence.
Director of Business Development
After many years of experience in the hospitality industry, I was ready to build strong relationships in another field, one that was dedicated to helping individuals find their forever homes. I love the challenge of having new tasks each day and I’m looking forward to continuing to meet new people and get to know Residents on a personal level.
Yes, as a Resident, you may elect to keep your primary care physician and any other doctors you have or begin a new relationship with a local physician or specialist; it’s entirely up to you.
What is Tapestry Program for Memory Care?
The Whitney Place Tapestry Program, offered at our Natick, Northborough, Sharon and Westborough locations, is an innovative program for seniors living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. The program is designed to help those with memory impairment live life to the very fullest by minimizing its impact from day to day.
What is the difference between assisted living and a skilled nursing center?
Assisted living gives Residents a little help with their daily routines, while they maintain their personal independence and social interactions.
Skilled nursing centers (nursing homes) give Residents with long-term medical needs 24-hour care in a home-like environment, and recreation as their abilities allow.
Are there visiting hours? May I have overnight guests?
There are no visiting hours; Whitney Place is home to our Residents. You’re welcome to have guests visit whenever you’d like, including overnight in your apartment.
Is there a nurse on call overnight?
Yes, there is a nurse on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

SALMON Health and Retirement’s senior living and healthcare options address older adults at different stages of their lives, from when they’re completely independent to meeting the needs they may require as they age. That results in a continuum of care.

The inspiration to deliver a healthier, richer life for those we serve runs three generations deep in our family and is something we believe our entire team strives for every day. That’s because founder Helen Salmon, a nurse who instilled compassion and responsibility, set our standard when she said we needed to serve others “just like family.”
Following Helen’s lead, people on the SALMON team have a habit of pitching in, working together to create the best experience for those we serve, and each other.
We have remained family owned and operated since our founding in 1952 by Helen and Daniel Salmon, Sr. When their son Danny, Jr., and his wife Dorothy took the reins in the 1960s, they began building and expanding the scope of services. Today, third-generation family members Matt and Andrew Salmon are actively involved in the daily operations of the organization’s campuses.
Throughout the years, the Salmons have brought an unwavering commitment to excellence and a genuine concern and respect for each individual.
