Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director

Scott-Farrar at Peterborough

The Trustees and staff of Scott-Farrar are committed to providing a healthy, safe, home-like environment for the Monadnock Region’s older citizens at an affordable cost. The professional quality of care, diverse backgrounds of the residents and variety of activities contribute to a rich and stimulating atmosphere. Scott-Farrar is dedicated to meeting the needs of each resident in a dignified and caring manner.

Scott-Farrar was originally known as The Peterborough Home for the Aged which opened on November 20, 1909, as a home for citizens who did not have family to care for them in their aging years.  Residents gave what they could and the Monadnock community took care of the rest.  There was much community support in making the Home for the Aged function. Because of this noble history, and financial support offered to qualifying residents through the Jennie Scott Legacy Fund, Scott-Farrar is a 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization.

Today, Scott-Farrar endeavors to keep its non-profit mission alive. In a sparkling new community built in 2016, we offer independent living, assisted living and memory care support.
