Who Needs Independent Living

Many seniors choose independent living in Boston because they no longer wish the responsibilities of home ownership, but still want to maintain their freedom. Independent living communities are incredibly diverse, offering different benefits depending on the community. This diversity means that you can find communities perfect for couples or singles, as well as communities that offer assistance with housekeeping, meals, transportation, and security. The Boston retirement community you choose will be one that provides the environment that best suits your needs.

What to Expect

  • Pet friendly housing
  • Exercise equipment and programs developed specifically for seniors
  • Planned outings throughout the city
  • Social activities and events
  • Customized meals plans
  • Convenient access to public transportation
  • Housekeeping services

In Boston independent living communities are also referred to as retirement communities. Call us to help you find the community that meets all your needs.

Activities for Seniors in Boston

Boston offers a plentiful variety of activities and attractions perfect for seniors. Here are a few examples.

Library – The Boston Public Library is the second largest library in the United States. With over 20 millions items available to borrow, a visit to the library can allow you to spend weeks enjoying the wonders of modern and classic literature.

Boston Marathon – This annual tradition is one of the best and oldest marathons in the world. If you are still in running shape, runners of any age are welcome. If you prefer to watch, you can celebrate with most of the city as thousands of people run the 26 miles.

Paul Revere House – Paul Revere is one of the most famous figures of the American Revolution. His home, perfectly preserved, serves as a small museum in the heart of Boston.

Baseball – Baseball is an American tradition and Boston celebrates that tradition with a professional baseball team that is over 100 years old. Live Red Sox games at Fenway Park are a wonderful way to spend a sunny day with friends or family.

Churches - Boston is home to roughly half a dozen churches that are 200 years old or older. A walk around the city will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and other churches like it.
