The professionals at Masconomet are dedicated to providing high quality long-term nursing and subacute care. It is our goal to open the doorways to a functional and fulfilling lifestyle for each and every one of our residents.
The facility is situated on lovely grounds in peaceful Topsfield, Massachusetts in a setting that has been described by residents as “pleasant and comfortable.” Masconomet offers elegant dining, social rooms and finely decorated living accommodations. In addition, the nursing and therapeutic services are second to none. Programs are comprehensive, offering residents the most modern, innovative therapies available.
Our professionals work 24-hours a day to provide the highest quality care. The staff represents a wide range of specialties, including physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers, and nutritionists. Together they create a restorative program suited to individual needs and then work to maximize the potential of their patients each day of their stay.
Residents may choose to have their personal physician provide their care. However, if that is not possible, for whatever reason, our facility staff will assist in selecting a physician that meets the approval of the resident and their families.
