Yes! As a resident at Tuckerman Terraces, you can bring a pet at your will. The pets will live with the resident in the apartment, not around the community. It is important to make residents can take care of the pets themselves.

Do you have therapy services in the community and do you have on-site physician’s?
Yes! We have a therapy gym and we have two therapy providers. Medicare part A (Bayada) and a Medicare part B (Reliant). Typically when someone moves in we have the Medicare Part A provider assess the resident and treat if needed. This is helpful to get a resident familiar with their apartment and the community and gain confidence in their new surroundings. Medicare part B provider will assess and treat a resident if they have had a decline or if they need strength training in an area. Medicare will usually cover services, sometimes there is a co-pay for the Part B service depending on the insurance the resident has.
