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.

The community is very clean and when you visit you see the daily activities and life being lived. The community is good with communication and the staff very caring and concerned about our loved ones. The nursing staff has done a great job. The food is good and my loved one really likes it. I would recommend this community to others.

Orchard Valley At Wilbraham
2.8

One of my issues was they gave us a wonderful introduction to the place. It seemed incredibly warm and friendly. I thought the services they provided were spectacular. But as we moved through the admissions process, I felt they were pushing us to take make services than we wanted or needed. And it seemed like there were some things that were told to us prior to entering that were not so true once we got in there. To be fair, as soon as we moved our loved one in, they had a Covid outbreak among the staff. I would guess that our experience would have been quite different had we not been in that situation. I was very frustrated and upset with the staff for bringing Covid into the facility, and they had a really hard time getting it under control. I would guess some of it came from people gathering at Thanksgiving. But I'm sorry, you work in an assisted living facility with vulnerable, elderly people. And I think people should be more aware. They had a hard time quelling the infection in the staff, and then it started spreading to the residents. My loved one did get Covid. I don't think that was her primary cause of death - she had heart failure compounding the situation. One of the things that actually drew us to Orchard Valley was the fact that they had gone the whole year, all the way through to December, with absolutely no Covid in the facility. So I was impressed, and felt clearly they were doing something right. But maybe everybody got tired of all the precautions by Thanksgiving. Even so, overall it was a good place, they were just experiencing unprecedented challenges due to Covid. So there were definitely some things that were not okay, and definitely some things that were really great. They did a pretty good job keeping the place clean all the time. And it was a beautiful facility. They were offering activities, which was great. And my loved one particularly enjoyed the mindfulness and aerobics activities. The care was sometimes good and sometimes bad. She had OT and PT services there, which were really helpful to her, and those staff were very friendly. But Orchard Valley made a pretty serious supply mistake regarding our loved one's incontinence care. We had told them from the start that she was incontinent, and one day they called to tell us she was entirely out of pants and that they had absolutely nothing for her. I was completely appalled. How can that happen? I imagine these types of things were due to Covid and the fact that they were short staffed. The whole situation was really hard for me. I was immune-compromised, yet they would still ask me to come in and do things while there was active Covid in the facility. I did what I felt I had to do it to take care of my mother, but it made me very uncomfortable. She was there for such a short time, about six weeks. So perhaps this is not the best overview of what the facility is like. But it is what we experienced during a Covid outbreak in her time there. I will say that they were incredibly helpful at the end. They gave me good guidance and were very caring. They cared for her as best they could, but how do you properly care for people who are dying when you don't have enough staff? But they were very helpful to me and provided me with very good information, and I felt we ended up doing everything we could for my mother at the end. And part of that was on them, because they were so helpful.
