Beverly Assisted Living Facility Closing For Renovations

BEVERLY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — An assisted living facility in downtown Beverly is closing for renovations, forcing its residents to move out in 90 days.

Motif by Monarch, formerly known as Landmark at Ocean View, sent a letter to its 67 residents that they must vacate the facility by July 19.

Monarch Communities purchased the facility in December and realized the amount of repairs needed to renovate the building—which includes the elevators, generators, and roof—necessitates its closure.

"Obviously it's not our intention to kick someone out on the street," said Monarch Communities Managing Partner Russ Dingman.

Monarch said it is assisting its residents in finding new homes, including financial assistance with moving, and will also offer its staff bonuses to stay.

"They had reached out to some area facilities, and some of those facilities have actually been onsite to meet with residents and their families over the last couple days to start talking through other options and opportunities," said Beverly Mayor Mike Cahill.
