Ruth’s House is a beautiful, homelike residence for seniors of all faiths who value their independence, but may need assistance with day-to-day living activities. If your loved one is transitioning to a new lifestyle, or needs extra care they can’t receive where they live now, we’ll make them feel right at home.

Surrounded by lovely landscaped grounds and private walkways, Ruth’s House in Longmeadow, MA, is part of the 23-acre comprehensive campus of care at JGS Lifecare. Comprehensive care is one of the wide range of life care services we offer, meaning we can transition residents into other programs or services as their needs change over time.


Benefits of Assisted Living at Ruth’s House

At Ruth’s House, each resident is offered an individualized care plan, and has access to various levels of care. Care may include help with bathing, dressing and medication. Primary Care physician services are available on-site. A licensed nutritionist is available to discuss your dietary needs. Residents enjoy private or companion suites that can be personalized. A life enrichment program is designed to promote physical, intellectual, and emotional well-being. Respite stays are also offered at JGS, providing accommodations when family or caregivers travel. This provides comfortable environment when recuperating from an illness, or just a chance to discover the benefits of assisted living.

Memory Care in The Garden Neighborhood

This separate and secure neighborhood has been designed to support the needs – and perhaps, more importantly, the successes – of each resident with early to mid-stage memory impairments and other dementia related diseases. Our staff has come to know each of our residents on a very personal level, and strives to accentuate skills and strengths that residents retain, and not focus on losses. Daily activities are designed to create experiences of success, and reduce anxiety in a safe and secure environment. Assisted Living at Ruth’s House gives your loved one the care and support they need, while allowing them to lead full and independent lives.
