Independent Living in Massachusetts

When it comes to senior living, Massachusetts is a great choice for you or your loved one.

The most populous state in New England, Massachusetts features a distinctive blend of natural beauty and treasures of U.S. history. 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. The amount of variety within reach to those who call Massachusetts home makes the Bay State an exemplary retirement destination.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 160 independent living communities in Massachusetts.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Massachusetts is about $3,000.

Thirwood Place in South Yarmouth, MA
4.2

We chose Thirwood Place because my mom really liked the overall feel of this facility and thought it suited her best. The apartment sizes here are great and spacious. She is on the 1st floor and she has a door to a patio and some have a door to a porch, so they all have access to be outside which is really nice. My mom likes it here and I would definitely recommend.

Everleigh Cape Cod in Hyannis, MA

I chose Everleigh Cape Cod because I wanted an apartment that had a lease. They do have a wide variety of apartment sizes to choose from. It is a newer facility so it will be nice when more residents are moved in here. I would recommend to others looking.

Brookdale Cape Cod in Hyannis, MA

We had a great experience with the general manager, who first interviewed us and was extremely nice. I think because of Covid, it was different than it would have been normally. My loved one was one of the youngest people there, and he wasn't particularly happy because of that. But he had a nice room of his own, his own bathroom, and a kitchen area. It was very clean. They would come in once a week to clean the residents' rooms. He was just unhappy because everyone was so much older than he was. He didn't care for the food, which didn't have much salt in it as it was geared toward elderly people with blood pressure issues. To me, it looked appetizing, and the menu choices looked good. There were not many activities due to Covid, although they had things like bingo. But they had stopped the outings and excursions. I thought it was quite expensive, especially when you consider extras for different a la carte care options - medication assistance, depends, showering, etc. But I don't know what other places are charging.
