MEDWAY — A new senior living community is slated to open in town this summer and has begun accepting reservations.
In a press release, Salmon Health & Retirement said the facility will be the first of its communities to offer both independent living and assisted living options at the same site.
The Willows Premier Retirement Community for Active Adults and the Whitney Place Assisted Living and Memory Care facility, at 261 Village St., started taking reservations for spaces this month.
The senior living community for those over 55 years old offers cottage and apartment-style independent living, along with apartment-style assisted living and memory care on a single 57-acre campus.
“Much has happened in the world since we came together on June 3, 2020, to celebrate the structural completion of Salmon at Medway,” said CEO Matt Salmon, in a statement. “To reach this next milestone of beginning to accept reservations for our Salmon at Medway community is a day we’ve long anticipated. We look forward to meeting and engaging with members of the Medway and surrounding communities over the coming months and welcoming our new residents this summer.”

Westborough-based Salmon Health and Retirement began constructing the facility in January 2019 and structurally completed it by June 2020.
The Willows and Whitney Place communities are housed in separate wings of the 290,000-square-foot main building, each with its own dining room. The Willows will offer 15 rental cottages with interior parking and 56 apartment homes in a common building. Whitney Place will offer 60 “traditional” assisted living apartments and 40 memory care assisted living apartments. There will also be a pavilion for campus residents and a medical office building open to Medway residents.
Indoor and outdoor amenities include a bank, spa, salon/barber shop, fitness center with personal trainers, an on-site certified nutritionist, indoor pool, general store, library, billiards lounge, workshop, creative arts studio, greenhouse, a great room with stage and bar, and the “Pavilion” clubhouse, along with a daily schedule of activities. There’s also nearly three miles of walking trails on campus, along with a canoe and kayak launch into the Charles River.
Other offerings include “Anytime Dining,” which allows residents to enjoy restaurant-style service on their schedule, along with perks of being a member of Salmon’s Founders’ 1917 Club.
In homage to the year the Town of Medway was founded, the Founders’ 1917 Club at Salmon at Medway offers exclusive benefits to all residents who move in by three months after opening. That includes free rent, dining passes, personal training sessions and other offerings, such as covered moving expenses up to $3,500. The offers will be shared through the Salmon at Medway social and email channels over the coming months, the company said in its release.
Large down payments or advance purchases are not required, said Director of Sales & Marketing Jenna Anderson, with the communities instead offering standard lease-style monthly payments with no long-term commitment.
A series of free preopening virtual events, such as barre-inspired workouts, social media lessons for seniors, kids activities for grandkids, cooking and mixology lessons, are being offered this month as an opportunity for seniors and their families to learn more about and meet the Salmon at Medway team.

Salmon Health and Retirement has served central Massachusetts since 1952 and has existing locations in Westborough, Natick and Northborough. Salmon’s Beaumont at Worcester community was also the nation’s first COVID-19 recovery center for seniors.
