Assisted Living in Massachusetts

When it comes to assisted living, Massachusetts has plenty to offer.

The most populous state in New England, Massachusetts features a distinctive blend of natural beauty and treasures of U.S. history, making the Bay State an exemplary retirement destination. The Berkshire Mountains in the western region are a convenient getaway for coastal residents around Cape Cod Bay, and the famously upscale islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard sit just off the state’s southern shores. As one of the country’s original Thirteen Colonies, Massachusetts is rich with early American historic sites like Plymouth and Salem. Within Boston there’s the timeless North End neighborhood, along with popular tourist spots like the USS Constitution and the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 240 senior living facilities in Massachusetts that provide assisted living.

The median monthly cost of assisted living in Massachusetts is about $5,600.

Atria Marland Place in Andover, MA
5.0

My mom lived at Atria Marland Place in their Memory Care residence in 2021. The facility is in a very nice building - clean, well maintained, and nicely designed. The standout for Atria Marland Place is the staff. The aides, housekeeping, nurses, janitors, receptionists - EVERYONE is kind, caring, and willing to help! I cannot stress enough how much it helped knowing my Mom was among people who truly cared. During an incredibly stressful time in healthcare, and particularly in eldercare, the staff at Atria Marland place always went above and beyond. In my opinion, the aides, janitors, and housekeeping in the memory care unit deserve medals.
