12 Old Pocasset Ln,
Johnston, RI


Situated on 16-plus acres in a park-like setting, Anchor Bay at Pocasset is a bright, warm senior living community located near Rhode Island Hospital, Providence Place Mall, fine dining at Federal Hill, as well as Downtown Providence, and Johnston Memorial 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, walking clubs and seasonal crafts. Choose from a menu of seasonal, nutritious, chef-prepared dishes in the dining room. 

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.

My parents, Bob and Cecile, have been part of the Anchor Bay community for two years, and frequently mention how happy they are there, how well they are being treated, and how careful everyone there was during the pandemic. Thank you!
Great place to live

From what I can see, it seems to be a pretty nice place compared to a lot of other assisted living facilities I have seen around Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I visited only briefly in January of 2022, place seems clean no odd smells, residents... seem relatively more

Love working has given me a real sense of accomplishment and pride to have been working here the past year. The residents are definitely a top reason that i go into work, every single day, with a smile. Then add in my fellow co workers... and upper management and it creates a work atmosphere that one could only hope for! With Paul, Matt, n Calvin in the kitchen, Nate and 2 Michele's in housekeeping, Courtney And Denise in sales, Sheryl Dawn, Jen, and Steph @the front desk, and Robin n Kim in the office, and all other staff i have the privilege working with....makes it all worth it! This place has helped me grow as a person in so many ways, and I'll always I consider myself blessed and very lucky to have had the chance 2 work more

Where do I begin...My mom died suddenly and we needed a place for our dad to be safe and happy in almost an instant. We went to lunch twice in one week w/dad in the restaurant and again looked at the various available rooms. The staff was so patient... w us and very helpful as we worked diligently to convince our dad this was the place he needed to be. Well fast forward 3 years and my dad couldn't be happier! He is getting more exercise now walking the corridors to and from the elevator with his walker and couldn't be happier with all the friends he has made and the daily activities he takes part in. The transportation they provide is a big plus as we don't have to take time off from work to bring him to doctor's visits, and as you know once you pass 90 you have many!! The cleanliness of Anchor Bay is a 10+, the facility itself beautiful and staff are always so pleasant. Safety and security during Covid has been top notch as they are following strict RIDOH guidelines and have kept all residents HAPPY AND SAFE while the facility still is operating under restrictions per guidelines. Families are given regular weekly Covid updates by the director, Robin Pimental, via email which reassures us our dad continues on his daily activities and continues to be safe. If there has been a question or concern in the past w dad, Robin has promptly called us back to answer any questions we have had. So, as you can see we are extremely happy our dad resides at Anchor Bay and now at 91 he believes in longevity and looking forward to one day becoming a centenarian!!read more

My parents moved in over a year ago, the day before their 70th wedding anniversary on July 4th. AB graciously hosted a party for them and their family (16 people) on July 4th!! They have been very accommodating this past year, even through the... difficult COVID season. I know they are all wearing many hats while family cannot go into visit. So, THANK YOU!!read more

Hello my name is Mariô Monello and I love anchor Bay
I've worked at this wonderful establishment since I was 16 years old, and I'll be turning 20 soon. I started in dining and slowly moved my way to reception, as well as just helping out with various tasks needed. All of the staff are absolutely... wonderful and some of the most caring and genuine people I have ever met. Each of the residents puts a smile on my face every single day, and I feel so blessed to have so many encouraging and loving people around more

I have been visiting a friend at Anchor Bay for over five years. When I arrive I feel welcomed immediately by Cheryl, so consistently kind at the front desk. Her genuine, authentic concern is always felt by visitors and residents whether on the... phone or in person. How fortunate for Anchor Bay to have such a caring employee. I can’t speak too highly of her!And I’ve observed many other caring employees like Michelle whose kindness and sensitivity is so evident especially to those who struggle, to Kim who is quick to return emails and help with various concerns, to AnneMarie in the beauty salon who gives such personal attention as she accommodates residents even when this may be challenging.My special gratitude goes to the workers whose kindnesses I hear about from my friend. Although she can’t remember their names, she does remember how they have made her feel. Blessings to all of you!read more
Anchor Bay provides its residents with a safe, caring, nurturing, and compassionate home. Both the Independent Living facility and the Assisted Living facility provide great comfort and care to its residents and their families. Throughout the... years, its director, Robin Pimental, has led her staff to assist residents in a highly professional way with integrity and a clear vision to provide the best care possible. Both facilities, Independent Living and Assisted Living, are beautifully decorated, clean, and spacious. Every staff member has gone above and beyond to ensure that the residents are comfortable, safe, healthy, and cared for. Anchor Bay’s office staff, Kim and Cheryl, have gone to great lengths to handle the administrative day-to-day needs of the residents and their families. Kim is always on task with requested paperwork and administrative needs, and no matter how many times I call Cheryl on any given day, she is always pleasant and helpful. Tammi, Joanne, and Donna, on the Assisted Living unit, are available at all times to ensure that the nursing staff in that facility is attentive to the resident’s needs as well as to their family’s concerns. I cannot say enough about the great care that Anchor Bay, both the Independent Living facility and the Assisted Living facility, provides to its residents and their families. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend either facility to my family or friends. They’ve done an excellent job in caring for our loved more
