CareOne Acquires Its First Massachusetts Assisted Living Community

The large integrated healthcare network is set to transform senior living and memory care in Sharon, MA 

CareOne, a leading, family-owned senior care provider with more than 60 locations in the U.S., has completed the acquisition of Whitney Place at Sharon, formerly owned by SALMON Health and Retirement. The renamed building, CareOne at Sharon, marks a milestone as CareOne’s first assisted living and memory care community in Massachusetts.

CareOne is bringing 25 years of experience in assisted living from New Jersey to Massachusetts. The new facility joins the ranks of 15 existing skilled nursing facilities and an independent living facility in the state. Driven by its values to deliver the highest quality and most compassionate care, CareOne at Sharon is poised to become a leading assisted living facility in Massachusetts and a welcome pillar in the Sharon community.

In honor of the opening of CareOne at Sharon and to personally meet and greet local residents, CareOne hosted a celebratory event on June 15. Festivities included food tastings and refreshments, music, dancing, and raffles. The fresh, gourmet food, vibrant entertainment, and interactive social setting reflect what CareOne calls the CareOne Difference to deliver care in a safe environment that provides best in class culinary offerings, full mind-body wellness and meaningful connection. Also in attendance was the son of CareOne CEO and Founder Daniel Straus and Principal at The Straus Group, Joseph Straus, Town Administrator, Frederic Turkington, Chair of Select Board, Hannah Switlekowski and Member of Select Board, Kiana Pierre-Louis, to welcome CareOne to the Sharon community.

“We are elated to introduce our world-class assisted living offering to the state of Massachusetts,” said CareOne CEO, Daniel E. Straus. “Our assisted living and dementia care specialists work to provide daily services and activities to support the physical and mental health of our residents. CareOne provides 24/7 care and hotel-style senior living experiences that give each resident freedom of choice, consistent social interaction, and the tools they need to maintain the safest level of independence possible.”

CareOne assisted living communities are committed to delivering the highest quality of patient-centered care for their residents. By using a positive approach to care, their dementia care practitioners work with care partners and residents’ families to teach techniques that allow for dignity and supported independence. The program is expertly designed to meet the unique medical, emotional, and social needs of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or related conditions. Success-based programming with a hand-under-hand approach often allows difficult tasks such as activities of daily living to be carried out successfully, with limited to zero frustration for our residents. The highly skilled staff leads specialized programming tailored to each resident’s unique needs and abilities in an environment designed to feel like home.

“The dedicated staff at CareOne work tirelessly to meet the evolving needs of each patient. Our memory care community takes a unique approach to memory care, housing residents in neighborhoods based on their unique abilities and disease progression,” said Emily Vazquez, Vice President of Operations at CareOne. “Expanding our offering of senior living experiences in the state of Massachusetts is part of our commitment to partnering with nurses and caregivers to support seniors through the continuum of care.”
