Independent Living in Worcester, MA

Independent living communities, also known simply as retirement communities in Worcester, 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 Worcester county retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Worcester is about $2,200 within the city proper and $3,000 in both the metropolitan area and the state of Massachusetts.

For this type of senior care, Worcester offers many great options, and A Place for Mom can help you find the right one.

Cost of Living

The costs associated with living in Worcester are rated nine points above the national average, although the cost of living is 10% lower than the state average, and housing costs are significantly lower than average, as well. Grocery and other essential costs, however, are rated slightly higher. All index scores are based on a sliding scale with the national average set at 100.

Local Hospitals

The top hospitals in Worcester include:

  • UMass Memorial Medical Center — With 749 beds and a staff of more than 1,200, UMass Memorial offers a full range of services and has been highly rated in several heart surgery procedures as well as colon and lung cancer surgeries.
  • Saint Vincent Hospital — A teaching hospital with 272 staffed beds, Saint Vincent provides general medical care to patients of all ages, and has been acclaimed for its cardiology services and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) procedures. The hospital was founded in 1893 and is now owned by Vanguard Health Systems.

Weather and Climate

Worcester’s climate is classified as humid continental, typically consisting of warm summers and cold winters. The average humidity level is about 66%, and humidity levels are often highest during September at roughly 71%.

Worcester is considered very friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. The city is protective of its LGBTQ+ community, according to a 2014 study by Vocati.com, which named Worcester the 26th most LGBTQ+ friendly city in the United States. The city hosts an annual pride day with a parade and festival.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Pronounced “Wuh-ster” — or often “Wuh-stah” by locals — Worcester is the second-largest city in all of New England. Though it may seem like a small town compared to Boston, Worcester is known as “The Heart of the Commonwealth” and rivals many major cities when it comes to art, culture, and history.

Fine-art fanatics can spend hours at the Worcester Art Museum, which opened in 1898 and contains more than 38,000 works of art from all over the world. For theater and classical music aficionados, there’s the grand, historic Mechanics Hall as well as the Hanover Theater for the Performing Arts, both internationally recognized for their world-class productions and ornate designs. Then there’s Worcester’s annual stART on the Street festival, which allows residents and visitors free admission to view works by more than 300 artists, crafters, and street performers.

Worcester offers plenty of options for history buffs, too:

  • The Worcester Historical museum is devoted to local history and runs Salisbury Mansion, a house museum built in 1772 and restored to its 1830s appearance.
  • The American Antiquarian Society — the oldest historical society in the U.S. — collects and preserves printed materials from the country’s first European settlements through the late 1800s.
  • Bancroft Tower was built in 1900 in honor of George Bancroft, a Worcester statesman who served as a U.S. diplomat and secretary of the Navy. Made of stone and granite, the tower stands 56 feet high, giving it the appearance of a miniature medieval castle.
  • The Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial is an impressive four-acre area consisting of a pond, walking paths, and multiple granite structures.

Thanks to Worcester Lunch Car Company, which built many diners in the early- to mid-1900s, you can still find many old-fashioned lunch car diners around town, including the Boulevard Diner, Chadwick Square Diner, and Miss Worcester Diner.

Transportation

The Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) provides public bus services throughout Worcester and several surrounding cities. Residents over 60 or people with disabilities can ride the bus at half the regular fare, but they must provide proper identification. The WRTA local bus services, as well as train services connecting riders to Boston, run from Worcester’s historic Union Station.
