Commonwealth House: Assisted Living with all the comforts of home


There comes a time in most lives when the prospect of remaining in a lifetime home becomes increasingly challenging. These are the times when loved ones and family members begin to explore alternative living situations, options such as the newly opened Commonwealth House, an Assisted Living residence that sits on Commonwealth Avenue in Warwick. Tall, leafy trees and a sweeping green lawn make a breathtaking backdrop to this tidy, ranch-style home and create a picturesque setting for this once privately-owned, single-family residence.

Today, this gracious property is home to one of the newest, most unique concepts in assisted living, Commonwealth House. Welcoming and inviting, Commonwealth House is just the kind of place where a senior family member who is independent, but no longer able to live in their own home, can enjoy the comfort and peace of mind that living in a setting where they will be cared for can bring. Offering all the amenities of a larger community, but with much more personalized care and a truly home-like feeling, this recently renovated residence is the ultimate in senior living.

At Commonwealth House, a compassionate and experienced team of caregivers has created a safe and nurturing environment where the challenges of living at home are lifted off the resident’s shoulders. Such tasks as laundry, cleaning, cooking and the management of medication are routinely provided for and tended to with personalized care and attention. This assistance extends to the ever-important need for companionship, a sense of independence and access to hobbies and activities. Caregivers, which include a Nurse, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or Medication Technician, are also present around the clock here.

Residents of Commonwealth House will find eight sunny, newly remodeled and spacious bedrooms, each with a view of the grounds. There are common areas and an open-style kitchen where a personal chef prepares three nutritious, flavorful and balanced meals a day. Residents can also decorate their rooms with their own furniture, artwork and keepsakes.

Safety and security are a top priority at Commonwealth House. In addition to the 24-hour presence of staff and a secure entrance, the home is equipped with full fire suppression and an alarm system. In the event of a medical emergency, Kent Hospital is a short quarter-of-a-mile away.

Behind the success of Commonwealth House is a dedicated team of professionals who have a vision of a better, kinder and more personal level of care for seniors as they enter a new season of their lives. This team consists of Lisa Cardosi, RN, the Director of Wellness, Gina Lee D’Amore-Brown, the Executive Director, and Amanda and Graham Willoughby, the home’s proprietors. They are eager to answer all your questions, and to give you a tour of this beautiful residence.

Commonwealth House is located at 655 Commonwealth Avenue. For more information, call 401-298-6986 or visit their helpful website at to see photographs of the home’s grounds and many rooms.
