Assisted Living & Wellness Programs
in the Heart of New Hampshire


The Golden Crest was designed and built as an assisted living facility in 2001 and was operated for several years as a small family owned business.

​Nestled in a beautiful country setting in Franklin, NH, The Golden Crest is represented by 58 resident apartment suites with a licensed bed capacity of 100 assisted living residents.

The building offers a homelike atmosphere while situated on over 13 acres of farm land representing a serene setting with magnificent views of the Belknap Mountains.​ 

​In late 2016, The Golden Crest was acquired by Evergreen Health Associates of New Hampshire. Evergreen is a recognized and locally based private senior living and healthcare services provider having other similar properties in New Hampshire. As the successor operator to this family business, Evergreen introduces extensive resources to carry on the personalized and high quality attributes of resident care and lifestyle services. The Principal leadership of Evergreen is locally based and represents longstanding experience qualifications as well as notable industry recognition in the business. The locally based and family oriented culture of Evergreen operating The Golden Crest remains preserved and enhanced. ​​


The Golden Crest’s mission is to find out what motivates each resident in order for our staff to provide the experience of life enrichment for our residents. We invite you to view our sample activity calendar, to see how our vibrant programs promote the health of the mind, body and spirit. We help seniors live the life they want to live. We encourage you to stop by and see for yourself how The Golden Crest can make a difference in you or your loved ones’ life.
