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.

Kaplan Estates in Peabody, MA
5.0

I would suggest Kaplan Estates, and have brought it up to friends who are asking. My mother is happy and everything seems to be working out well for her. Due to COVID they are allowing 2 people for one hour each week to visit. This allows my mother to get out to see us and for us to see her. We have to maintain the six feet difference. My mother has a land line and we are always calling her to visit.

The Atrium at Veronica Drive in Danvers, MA
4.2

I think the facility was pretty clean, including my loved one's room. Although tidiness could use improvement, for instance the way clothes were put away, etc. Perhaps my expectations were not realistic. The staff were very friendly, but they were understaffed. I think there was some confusion/misunderstanding between the director and myself. I was told they would have a podiatrist coming in, as well as OT and PT, which I said I was interested in. And she said my loved one would be getting all of those services. But that didn't really happen. She only got those services the last 2-3 weeks she was there during a 2-month respite stay. And when she got home and I looked at her feet, it did not look like she had seen a podiatrist. They said they would go on outings for ice cream and things, which never happened. And I was told different reasons as to why. I think their communication with each other could use improvement. They would contact me and say she urgently needed Depends, but when I would get there, she had two packages in the closet. Same with a "lost" sweater that was right there in the closet. But everybody was very friendly to deal with. My loved one was always clean and in clean clothes. Her general care was always fine. I just think there were some misunderstandings. They kept in contact with me, and I appreciated the communication. They included my loved one and invited her to activities. I think they did a good job with activities and offered a variety of different things - music, coloring, puzzles, etc. I just would have liked to see her get outside more. But overall I feel like it was a good value. And for respite care, I would choose The Atrium over skilled nursing in a heartbeat.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
