Recent reviews of Senior Apartments in Boston, MA
Susan Bailis Assisted Living Community in Boston, MA

They have been friendly. The staff has been able to assist with people that are able to take my loved one to the doctor and other items. They have a coffee shop next door and close to other shopping centers. They even have a parking garage under the community. The community takes the residents to different activities in the community and have musical concerts by students come in to see the residents. They have several different options to choose from for cost for your family.

Residences at Highland Glen in Westwood, MA

We chose this community because it was the nicest one out of the ones we looked at. It is also very quiet. The building was built 15 years ago but you would never know it, they take good care of the property and are always cleaning. The room sizes are decent, I have a 1 bedroom apartment with a beautiful open kitchen, wood floors, a dining room area, and a porch. The bathroom is very big, it also has handles in the tub and outside of the tub. Anytime someone moves out, the remodel the whole place. They bring in all new appliances and repaint. They do have a gym, meet and greets for the new residents, but these activities are shut down due to the virus. I have and will recommend Residences at Highland Glen.

Youville House in Cambridge, MA

In March, I finally forgo my fear of a stressful move & joined Youville. The move went smoothly, & I had a dinner partner to feel at home. The housekeeping staff helped me to sleep on my freshly made bed the first night. My daughter visited me to help me to settle in- She was impressed with the smooth running of the facility commenting "I could also get old here." I appreciate that the management sees us, as “individuals" not just ‘paying tenants. They respect each resident here as a retired but experienced contributor to society. Management genuinely values & respects the retirees’ needs for the remembrance of personal pride &dignity. There are programs designed for seniors to share their expertise & memory. A weekly ‘Open Rehearsals’ program allows residents to enjoy a retired music teacher expertise with a piano recital. A new program, ‘True Stories’ offers the residents the opportunity to grace us with their memorable life stories & culture. I enjoy my life at Youville very much.
