The Villas at RiverMead Are the Next Generation in Retirement Living
Peterborough, NH – RiverMead, a top-rated full-service, not-for-profit LifeCare Retirement Community, will break ground in the early fall on the Villas at RiverMead, culminating over two years of extensive research and planning as part of their master plan. This initial phase will consist of two buildings, housing a total of just 24 corner Villa units.

The Villas will join the two neighborhoods of The Mead and The Village on RiverMead’s expansive 90-acre campus nestled in the woodlands of Peterborough, NH, within easy access of Boston, the Berkshires, and the seacoast.

“Today’s clients are different than those of ten years ago. Through our research, we’ve learned what they value – spacious, open living areas which offer privacy, convenience, and freedom from maintenance and upkeep. The Villas are an entirely new concept, combining the privacy and spaciousness of our single home residences with the accessibility and community of our apartments,” remarked Jan Daly-Eaton, Director of Resident Services & Marketing. “They are the result of our partnership with current residents, staff, future members, and industry leaders to develop a comprehensive master plan that builds on our strong foundation of creating a caring and vibrant community for our residents while developing a progressive vision for the future.”

Each architect-designed Villa will feature spacious open concept design, luxury finishes, large screened porch, beautiful views, and a corner orientation for maximum flow and light. The project will begin this July with a projected completion date of fall 2018. RiverMead is currently accepting deposits on these new units. Additionally, special informational sessions on this new residence option are scheduled throughout the area. To find out when a session might be scheduled near you or for more information on RiverMead and the Villas, please visit their website at

RiverMead is an award-winning LifeCare Community set in the beautiful community of Peterborough, NH, offering a range of luxury living units, continuing professional onsite health care options, every lifestyle amenity as well as a wealth of cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities.

RiverMead Heirloom Project Recipe Winner - April 2017

Heirloom fb

The RiverMead Heirloom Project: The Heirloom Project is a series of monthly recipes brought to the community (‘My Family to Yours’) from a Resident of RiverMead. The Residents have submitted recipes (and stories) from their family’s ‘recipe book’ to share with us and future generations. One recipe and family story behind the recipe was selected by a judging panel for each month of the upcoming year. The selected recipe will be featured on the menu at RiverMeads’ Main Dining Room with Chef Fournier building the balance of the menu around complimenting the chosen recipe.

The Story:

“I believe the recipe originated at a little restaurant in Upper East Side Manhattan. The version I used came from my father’s cookbook, The 1961 New York Times Cook Book by Craig Claiborne. If there was a gourmand in the family, it was my father. I remember him often attending Wine and Food Society dinners when I was growing up. This was a favorite recipe of mine to prepare for my family for family gatherings. For me, it was always a two day production, making the Joy of Cooking, hollandaise sauce the day before, poaching chicken breasts and steaming broccoli the next day. I have a granddaughter who doesn’t eat red meat or pork so she was always happy to eat this meal."
