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.
For the most part they are willing to work with the family, and it is easy going for the community. The staff communication with the family is very good. The food is pretty good and it looks appetizing, and it includes three meals a day. Medication management and bathing assistance is some of the care the community is able to provide. I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones.Read more
