Portuguese Immersion Program (Royal Taber Street, Royal Fairhaven)

The Royal Health Group has always been attentive to the specific cultural needs of the regions in which we operate. On the South Coast of Massachusetts, The 5-star Royal Taber Street in New Bedford and neighboring Royal Fairhaven have always catered to the Portuguese-speaking population, which dominates the landscape in this ethnically diverse area.  Royal Taber Street, located in the heart of historic New Bedford, and Royal Fairhaven, just minutes away on Main Street, Fairhaven, have formalized their Portuguese Immersion program, transitioning to a new model that promises extra attention to our Portuguese-speaking residents. The Royal Health Group’s motto has long been “Our Family Helping Your Family,” and residents of Portuguese, Brazilian and Cape Verdean descent are made to feel as “at home” as possible in every aspect of their experience at Royal Taber Street and Royal Fairhaven. Modeled after Royal Braintree’s highly successful Russian Immersion program, our two South Coast nursing facilities are committed to meeting the specific cultural, medical and dietary needs of our Portuguese residents. We promise Portuguese-speaking nursing staff 24/7, and Portuguese-speaking caregivers in the areas of activities, therapy, dining and social services, as well.
