About Us


John H. Whitaker Place was created to be a unique and affordable option for seniors (55+) who need some assistance with daily tasks to remain independent. The facility includes 54 private apartments and several common areas that are frequented by all residents.

Full-service dining, weekly linen, housekeeping, and daily personal care services are inclusive in one monthly rental fee.

We are a nonprofit organization with oversight by the Board of Directors of Penacook Assisted Living Facility, Inc. and supported by the New Hampshire Division of Elderly and Adult Services, Choices for Independence Program (CFI). Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for all our residents, in an environment that welcomes everyone.

Personal care and wellness services are provided by Concord Regional VNA.
