About Our LivingCenter

In Massachusetts, Golden LivingCenter - Fitchburg provides excellent care in a comfortable, home-like environment that maximizes independence and dignity. We have short-term care that emphasizes rehabilitation and return to regular life, as well as long-term nursing, respite care and hospice, provided by licensed community providers.


Our rehab care truly differentiates us. We have a spacious, modern gym where we offer physical, occupational and speech therapy six days a week. Additionally, we offer Freedom Through Functionality (FTF), powered by Aegis Therapies. This program of strength building is a highly effective way to increase mobility and independence. Potential benefits of FTF include improved quality of life, increased muscle strength, improved body composition, improved mobility, enhanced functional capacity, reduced number of falls and enhanced joint flexibility.


We also offer another Aegis program, Geriatric Enhanced Modalities (GEM), through which we offer therapy protocols designed specifically for health conditions common to older adults. Our clinicians are specially trained to integrate the modalities of shortwave diathermy, e-stim, and ultrasound with traditional therapy approaches to maximize patient outcomes. These patients enjoy better mobility, less pain, greater joint flexibility, faster recovery, earlier discharge from therapy and an enhanced quality of life.


At Golden LivingCenter - Fitchburg, we have two full-time dedicated social workers available to all residents and family for a variety of needs, including setting up home services prior to discharge. We have a registered nurse on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as a wound-certified nurse. Pulmonary physicians from Mass Lung and Allergy consult weekly at our facility. Our approach to clinical healthcare emphasizes teamwork between all members of our staff -- nurses, dietitians, social workers, activity coordinators -- and each employee plays a key role in the treatment plan.


Golden LivingCenter - Fitchburg is accredited by the Joint Commission and received their Outstanding Life Safety Award in 2010.


We are proud to be a 2008 recipient of the American Health Care Association (AHCA) / National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) Bronze Quality Award. This award recognizes facilities that demonstrate a strong commitment to principles of continuous improvement by delivering ever-improving value to residents and other customers, improving overall organizational effectiveness and capabilities, and serving as a champion for organizational and personal learning.
