Franklin Court Assisted Living/Independent Living
150 Franklin Street
Bristol, RI 02809

Located in historic Bristol, Rhode Island, Franklin Court Independent Living offers independent living for seniors in a comfortable, secure setting.

Ninety-eight apartments are housed in a complex formerly known as the Kaiser Mill. With some dating as far back as the Civil War, the buildings were used for a variety of industrial purposes until their rebirth as senior housing began in 1993. That year, the first rehabilitated building was transformed into subsidized housing for individuals 62 years and older.

In 1997, a second building was revitalized to offer additional apartments for active seniors capable of independent living. Today, Franklin Court Independent Living is a vibrant part of the Bristol community where seniors from 62 to 94 live happily together.

Senior Yard Work Day

Twice a year the Feinstein Center for Service Learning & Community Engagement organizes a service day where Roger Williams University students volunteer to do yard work at the properties owned by local senior citizens. We usually volunteer at around 50 homes. Please email us if you're interested in participating: service@rwu.edu
