East Providence, RI


Situated near One Hundred Acre Cove Nature Preserve with beautiful water views, Anchor Bay at East Providence is a vibrant, cozy senior living community located near Rhode Island Hospital, Miriam Hospital and Roger Williams Hospital as well as Seekonk Shopping Center, RISD Museum and Haines Memorial State Park. Wake up every day in a safe, intentionally designed living space. We tend to the cooking, housekeeping and home maintenance so you can participate in social, cultural and exercise programs including happy hours, chair exercises and painting classes. Choose from a menu of seasonal, nutritious chef-prepared dishes at our bistro.

Enjoy discreet, supportive care, a maintenance-free lifestyle including scheduled transportation, and boutique amenities. Spend every day living fully and experiencing greater well-being.


Our Philosophy

We believe a thoughtfully designed environment filled with good neighbors and a caring staff, along with nutritious food, accessible exercise programs and opportunities to connect and engage every day, are the right combination for optimal living.  

For older people living alone, these important elements can become harder to maintain – making home a challenging, unsafe, even lonely place to be.  

That’s why we offer a community for older people where living is easier, surroundings are safer – and together is better.

How we’re showing gratitude in August

For leaving our minds better than you found them – thank you, teachers.

Teachers influence the future by awakening curiosity, confidence and creativity, and opening our minds to possibilities. As educators head back to the classroom this month, we’re showing our gratitude by supporting their essential work and sharing personal stories of those who made a difference in our lives.

Come see how we’re celebrating teachers in August at one of our featured events!

This is such a cozy and beautiful community. It's Natural setting makes it a perfect place to view wildlife ( I saw a Baltimore Oriole for the 1st time in years during my visit), and to engage in gardening pursuits. Resident engagement... opportunities abound in both assisted living and memory support, with individual talents being honored and highlighted. Each resident I spoke with told me that they love living life at anchor Bay at East Providenceread more

Very caring staff that is response to my mother's needs!

I want to thank Mary for always listening to my concerns about my mom and going above and beyond in providing her care. An example…one evening before putting my mom to bed, I noticed swelling in her hands and was concerned about her wedding band... becoming stuck on her finger. I told Mary about the swelling and asked if the nurse could be alerted in the morning about the swelling. On my way home, Mary called to say she checked on my mom, saw the swelling, and went ahead and removed the ring and locked it up for me to pick up. I so appreciated Mary’s act of more

My mom has been living at Anchor Bay for 2.5 years. After looking at multiple facilities over a period of days, we felt instantly at home when we walked into Anchor Bay. Ashley went above and beyond, helping us to get my mom moved in comfortably... in a very short time frame due to an unexpected need. The entire staff is always friendly, helpful, and caring no matter the situation. They are truly special people and have given my family peace of more

I cannot express my gratitude to Ashley, Paige and the team at Anchor Bay! My mother just moved there, and she is well-cared for, emotionally and physically. They are on it! The process of getting her there was a long one for me. I checked out... several assisted living communities. Anchor Bay was the first visit. I loved it there. I kinda wanted to move in!!!My family members and mother expressed wanting to keep my mother in the town she was in, but honestly, at this time, I had to make her closer to me to oversee her care, and Anchor Bay is 15 minutes from my home.After much consideration, I went with my gut. I chose Anchor Bay, and I'm so glad I did.The sense of relief I have in knowing that my beloved mum is safe and cared for is something inexplicable. She has cared for me my whole life, and now it's my turn to watch over her. This was the best choice.Thank you to everyone at Anchor Bay!Rock stars!!!!!read more

We worked closely with the staff at Anchor Bay during our exploration of options for a family member. The staff all went above and beyond with their customer service, and I really got a sense that they are more like a big family than just a... community. Even after our family member made the decision to go elsewhere (for personal reasons unrelated to the quality of care at Anchor Bay), Ashley remained an active resource for both assistance and emotional support, which really made a great impression. If you're juggling with options for assisted living or memory care for your loved one, take it from someone who has done extensive research on all of the facilities in the area; Anchor Bay is by far the best selection. A big thank you to the staff at Anchor Bay for everything they have done and continue to do for my more

My best friends mother moved in a few years ago. She has early stage dementia and is doing so well at AnchorBay. Staff is so friendly and caring and take such good care of her. It was so nice to come by and see how happy she is there and how... beautiful the building is. Ashley Ferreira is the sweetest and knows all the residents so well. I highly recommend Anchor Bay of East Providence for your loved more

My brother moved to Anchor Bay in April and loves his new home. The staff is very professional and they create a warm and caring community that is like an extended family. Ashley Ferreira, the Director of Sales and Marketing, was extremely helpful... in facilitating the transition and was very generous with her time and advice. All of the staff are very friendly and the building is very clean, spacious and well furnished. We are so pleased to be part of the Anchor Bay family!read more

If you are looking for someone who will care your loved one and understand the importance of family, look no further. Ashley and the admission team at Anchor Bay have gone above and beyond for us. Ashley is one of the most compassionate people I... have only met over the phone/email. Unforeseen circumstances have prevented mom from moving in right now and yet Ashley keeps in touch and genuinely cares about her. Anchor Bay is very fortunate to have Ashley as a Director who honestly understands the value and meaning of family. We have never felt pressured to commit or inconsequential because we can't and for that we are eternally more

A BIG Thank You to Ashley, who has made my brother John feel welcomed and cared for. The adjustment hasn't been easy for him, but he seems to be accepting the changes. Ashley you have helped my brother so much and I can't thank you enough for your... kindness and caring you have shown my brother. You are an Asset to Anchor Bay along with your staff, & Paige. You have made my family and I grateful for the care you've shown my brother. THANK more

Deciding to move your parent out of their home that they have lived in for over 25 years to an assisted living community is a very difficult situation. Throw in the times of covid and you have an emotional and logistical nightmare! My family and I... can not thank Ashley and Paige over at Anchor Bay enough for their understanding, dedication to service, professionalism, and genuine kindness in helping during this very difficult time. Our Dad has seemed to transition well and we attribute that to the gorgeous facility and the amazing staff. We honestly could not have asked for a better outcome. Thank you all so much and we look forward to being a part of the Anchor Bay family!!read more
Melissa S.
Ashley Ferreira is so knowledgeable and kind. She is willing to share her wisdom and educate those around her. I am new to the area and consider her an asset to have her as a colleague and friend. Anchor Bay at East Providence is lucky to have her... and can only be considered one of the best with her as part of their team!read more
