Learn More About Independent Living in Methuen, MA

Methuen, north of Boston, serves as a suburban retreat that lies in close proximity to Boston’s downtown area and attractions, but hosts many services and resources to meet daily needs, such as shopping centers, restaurants, and healthcare facilities. Methuen also has its own unique attractions that celebrate the city’s sense of community, like the historical sites found in the Arlington Mills Historic District, and local festivals like the Methuen Festival of Trees.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Methuen are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Methuen retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
