Pondview Lodge is an adult day health program designed to meet the physical, functional and social needs of elders and disabled adults living in the community. Pondview is owned and operated by Essex Group Management, a family and veteran-owned company located in Rowley. Our adult day health program is open Monday through Saturday 8AM-4PM, and is staffed with qualified, experienced licensed nurses, social workers, certified nurses assistants and activity coordinators The highly skilled staff are trained to provide individual assistance to each member. We are home to two day programs offering a traditional adult day health program and a program for people diagnosed with memory disorders including Alzheimer’s disease and the related disorders of aging. The adult day health environment features interesting, “failure free” activity programs which offer a focused approach to maintain health and maximize independence.  Attending a supportive and therapeutic day program may assist individuals in remaining in the community and in their own homes.  Darcey Adams, LICSW stated “Pondview Lodge has been physically and programmatically transformed in the past year and we invite the community to schedule a tour to learn about all the changes!”

 All staff and Pondview members were in attendance. Additionally, Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce Board Members and other agency members within the community who also serve the targeted population attended the event.

 Following the ribbon cutting, tours of both day programs were offered, in addition to refreshments being served.  For more information about Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce member benefits, programs and services please call the office at 781-592-2900, email [email protected] go to www.LynnAreaChamber.com
