HAVERHILL, Mass. — More than 200 community leaders, health care professionals, and future residents gathered on Oct. 24 at the grand opening celebration of Wingate Residences at Haverhill, an independent living, assisted living and memory care community located at 10 Residences Way (formerly 182 North Ave.).
The event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony with James J.
