Skilled Nursing Home in Concord, MA

Short- and long-term care beyond compare

A commitment to excellence, compassionate care and exceeding expectations has never been more evident than at the newly renovated Rivercrest on the campus of Newbury Court.

For those in need of short-term or long-term skilled nursing or post-acute care and rehabilitation therapy, Rivercrest is not like traditional nursing homes in Concord.

Rivercrest is here to provide the highest quality, individualized nursing care designed to improve all aspects of life—physical, cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual—in a loving family atmosphere.

Top-rated Care for All

As a not-for-profit organization, the well-being of our residents is our highest priority and it’s emphasized in everything we do. It’s why Rivercrest is continually recognized for its excellence in senior care.

  • Rivercrest holds a 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission earning the Gold Seal of Approval®

And you don’t have to live at Newbury Court to benefit from the advantages of our skilled nursing facility in Concord. Rivercrest is Medicare and Medicaid-certified and welcomes direct admission.

Putting You First and Foremost

During the week, our interdisciplinary team of nurses, social workers, rehab therapists and chaplains review each resident’s physical and emotional comfort and progress, so no detail is missed. They are also available on the weekend to answer any and all your questions.

Our in-house team of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants is led by a dedicated medical director. A compassionate team is always on-site 24/7.

The high staff-to-resident presence and longevity of our nursing team mean you’ll experience continuity of care and a close, personal bond that can lead to more positive outcomes.

Every team member, including our dedicated psychiatrist and on-site licensed therapists with special training to support those with Parkinson’s disease, understands that everyone has individual concerns; personal preferences; and emotional, social and spiritual needs. That’s why our team will partner with you, your family and your physicians to develop an individualized care plan designed to meet those needs.

This includes specially designed cultural, spiritual, social, recreational and educational Life Enrichment programming to encourage residents to maximize their abilities and get the most out of each and every day.
