48 Residential Care Homes near Lowell, MA

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

Residential care homes in Lowell may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Lowell care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Lowell, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Residential Care Home facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Centralville, Pawtucketville and The Acre.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Andover, Bedford or Burlington.

Benchmark Senior Living on Clapboardtree in Norwood, MA
4.1

The day to day staff members and the residents are so friendly, warm and welcoming. However the nursing staff is not friendly at all, and do not express empathy towards the residents or other staff members. The meals are great and the dining staff is amazing. The activities director [name removed] is truly the best. He is fabulous and very caring.

Traditions of Wayland
4.7

My dad was determined and prepared to remain in his Wayland home. He moved to Traditions of Wayland in December for a two month “respite”, not long after a bad fall and several broken bones required hospitalizations and weeks in rehab. When the Traditions Resident Care Director, came to his discharge planning meeting I knew he would be in good hands. [name removed]’s intelligence, compassion, expertise and kind sense of humor inspired trust and optimism. Her resident care staff are especially cheerful, responsive, respectful, skilled and kind. I look forward to seeing them whenever I visit. About halfway through his “temporary” stay at Traditions, my dad decided to become a longer term resident and now lives in a nice apartment furnished with his favorite belongings. He has developed friendships and relationships that are meaningful and bring a new kind of purpose to his days. I am continually impressed by the quality of care and assistance he receives. The staff is responsive, communicative, cheerful, thoughtful and dedicated. From welcoming and informative greeters at the front desk, to the kitchen staff and activity planners, administrators and maintenance staff, everyone is dedicated to providing a pleasant and meaningful experience for the residents. I am grateful and proud to feel part of the Traditions of Wayland community.
