Long Term Care
Resident Driven Care
As one of the top 3% of nursing homes in the U.S. committed to resident-driven care, the emphasis of the nursing department at The Edgewood Centre is on the whole person.
Beginning on the day of admission, the resident and family are welcomed by a group of professionals who begin to develop a personalized plan of care to meet individual needs and preferences. Is there a preference to get up early for a long, hot shower or have a breakfast of blueberry pancakes in bed? Care is resident-centered and spcial requests are our specialty at Edgewood.

The Edgewood Centre, a New Hampshire nursing home, is located in the historic seaside town of Portsmouth, NH. The area is an hour north of Boston and close to the beaches of New Hampshire and southern Maine.
Residents take advantage of the beautiful location on scenic tours, fall foliage cruises, picnics at oceanfront parks, and riverside events all summer long at Portsmouth’s Prescott Park.
