Dear Friend:

Welcome to Beechwood, A Center for Life Enrichment.  You would need to look for a long time to find a seaside setting as beautiful as the one we enjoy everyday at Beechwood.  We are so pleased you have decided to visit and find out more about us and what we offer.

Beechwood is a multi-purpose center that provides a wide range of activities and services to mature adults (individuals 55 and over). Included on this web site you will find information on our Recreational and Wellness programs, Social Services, Transportation and all about our Seabreeze Dining Program.

Since Beechwood is a part of the North Kingstown municipal government.  Participation in center programs is open to all age 55 and over.  Our primary funding source is the Town of North Kingstown with additional funding provided by the North Kingstown Senior Association, the Department of Elderly Affairs, local organizations, grants, and individual contributors.

Many individuals choose to become members of the North Kingstown Senior Association (NKSA) “Friends of Beechwood”, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “Enhance the social, recreational, and educational opportunities for all North Kingstown seniors.”   Membership begins January 1st and entitles persons to receive our newsletter by mail each month. A registration form is included on this page for your convenience.

Please look over this web page, and our most recent newsletter, and discover the many programs and services available to you. If you have any questions please call us at 401-268-1590 between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, and we will do whatever we can to assist you or come visit us to take a tour of our facility so you can begin to celebrate your better years! Our staff and volunteers look forward to meeting you.  Welcome to Beechwood!

Enjoy your age!
