Penguin Hall is an historic estate in Wenham, Massachusetts with 50 parkland acres surrounding a gracious 1929 Manor House. It was built by Ruby Boyer Miller to accommodate her affair with Antarctic explorer Richard Llewelyn Byrd and passed through a series of diverse and caring owners before being transposed into a senior independent living community with 24-hour staff, magnificent amenities and integrated home care. The property is in the heart of historic Southern Essex County, known for its charming towns, white sand beaches, major museums, cultural events and rich mixture of dining traditions.
Penguin Hall residences are designed as beautiful homes for healthy, active seniors; many retired but some not. All are condominiums that subtly incorporate those features that provide safe accommodations for the inconveniences of aging. The owners are served by a full staff that include 24-hour concierge assistants, there to provide whatever services make lives more convenient and more secure. Residents can extend entertainment and activities into Penguin Hall’s carved paneled rooms, take advantage of a portfolio of magnificent amenities and know that there is a backstop should a health event arise.
At a time of life when healthcare is critical, the deeply ingrained Assisted Living model is failing. Aging in Place, either in a traditional home or a luxury condominium, is a short-term, problem-ridden solution that will require another move, probably under difficult conditions. Alternatively, a community that is built and managed for residents to receive family or professional care in their homes offers a dignified, comfortable cost-saving alternative, one perfected over two decades in six communities by Wise Living.
