Providing Exceptional Senior Care for Over 70 Years

Our Heritage: A Legacy of Compassionate Care

SALMON Health and Retirement stands as more than just a provider of senior care; it is a testament to a family's enduring dedication to enriching the lives of seniors. Our story began in 1952 in Northborough, Massachusetts, with a modest nursing home and has since evolved into a broad spectrum of senior living solutions. Founded by nurses Dan and Helen Salmon, our original vision of personal care and compassion remains our guiding force, even over seven decades later. Today, from the dynamic atmosphere of our vibrant independent living campuses to the nurturing environments of our memory care facilities, we focus on delivering the right solution at the right moment in the right environment. Each aspect of our approach is designed to provide a fulfilling and dignified experience for seniors, tailored to their unique journey through life.

Rooted in Care, Rising in Excellence: SALMON's Story

As a third-generation family-run business, SALMON's fabric is woven with threads of caregiving expertise and a profound understanding of seniors' needs. Our evolution from a small nursing home into a comprehensive post-acute care continuum has been driven by our philosophy: service over scale. This ethos distinguishes us in a sector where many providers prioritize expansion over personalized care.
