Nursing Homes in Massachusetts

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.

There are more than 170 nursing homes in Massachusetts. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Massachusetts to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Massachusetts is about $13,200, according to Genworth.

Kaplan Estates in Peabody, MA
5.0

I would suggest Kaplan Estates, and have brought it up to friends who are asking. My mother is happy and everything seems to be working out well for her. Due to COVID they are allowing 2 people for one hour each week to visit. This allows my mother to get out to see us and for us to see her. We have to maintain the six feet difference. My mother has a land line and we are always calling her to visit.

Atria Marland Place in Andover, MA
5.0

My mom lived at Atria Marland Place in their Memory Care residence in 2021. The facility is in a very nice building - clean, well maintained, and nicely designed. The standout for Atria Marland Place is the staff. The aides, housekeeping, nurses, janitors, receptionists - EVERYONE is kind, caring, and willing to help! I cannot stress enough how much it helped knowing my Mom was among people who truly cared. During an incredibly stressful time in healthcare, and particularly in eldercare, the staff at Atria Marland place always went above and beyond. In my opinion, the aides, janitors, and housekeeping in the memory care unit deserve medals.
