26 Residential Care Homes near Somerville, MA

Residential care homes in Somerville may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Somerville 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 Somerville, 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 Union Square, Powder House Square and Prospect Hill Somerville.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Boston, Cambridge or Medford.

The Rubin Home Assisted Living in Saugus, MA

They are awesome, amazing. It's clean and the staff are friendly. It's going well, I have no concerns at all. They are great!

Halcyon House in Methuen, MA

This community was very nice we had chosen it because it felt a little homier than others we had looked at. The staff is very nice and caring and we have good communication with them. In fact, it was them that brought it to our attention that mom was going to need hospice and they were going to take care of that for us. Mom is completely wheelchair bound now to the point where they need to deliver her meals to her room. The price wasn't any more expensive than others we looked at. My brother and I feel very confident in the choice we made and we know that she is receiving the best care she can get being there.
