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.

Autumn Glen in North Dartmouth, MA
5.0

Previously my love one was at a different facility and I will say that it is much better for her. They provide a lot of nice programs that they run. They do have a Memory Care section and I find that the people here are just more caring. The staff team is very knowledgeable and communicative. If something were to happen they are very good at calling me immediately and to let me know. I highly recommend this facility

Atria Fairhaven
5.0

We are so pleased that our family member joined the Atria Fairhaven community.The surroundings are beautiful in all aspects. The living areas, gathering areas, and outdoor grounds are well kept and pleasant. There are varied activities that offer a balance of entertainment, fitness, and socialization. The meals are also quite good. Of all the outstanding attributes Artia has to offer, by far the best is the staff. Everyone is helpful, cheerful and above all caring. After a year and a half, we are just as impressed as the first day we walked through the door!

It is a very nice community. The staff is professional and does a good job. It is a smaller community as well. There are a lot of restrictions due to the pandemic. The restrictions are understandable though.
