Pandemic-era Older Adults Drive Groundbreaking of Senior Living Community
Edgewood Senior Solutions Group of Massachusetts has broken ground on The Baldwin, a continuing care retirement community in Londonderry, NH. When complete, The Baldwin will offer 190 independent-living apartments, on-site healthcare and a complement of services and amenities.
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, enough apartment homes have been reserved to move forward with construction and plans to open in summer 2023.
“What we’ve seen in the senior living industry over the past 18 months is that a well-managed senior living community has been a great place to live during the pandemic,” said Marlene Rotering, CEO of The Baldwin and its sister community, Edgewood Retirement Community in North Andover, MA. “I think people who were living in their homes have looked at their own experiences and realized their lives would have been easier had they been living in a community like Edgewood or The Baldwin.”

Lisa McDuffie arrives at ConnectCRE via REALTOR® world, where she served for nearly two decades as communications director for one of the nation’s largest REALTOR® organizations. She supported two membership-elected presidents who were commercial real estate practitioners, and managed the communications initiatives of the organization’s commercial special interest group.
When not following the latest commercial real estate news, Lisa is zeroed in on her charismatic off-the-track thoroughbred as he makes the transition from an utterly failed racehorse to a lovely show hunter.
