Boston (MA) Senior Living Communities

To say Beantown is unique would not be cliché or trite. It’s the Capital of New England. It played the biggest role in our nation’s founding. And it has a culture all its own.

If you’re looking for Boston senior living options, you’ll find one of the most comprehensive databases on the web. We have hundreds of senior living options along with resident reviews and dozens of senior-related articles on everything from the “Best Senior Websites” to “GLBT Senior Living.”

Because Boston’s history is so important to its identity, we’ll start with the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walk back in time to the Revolutionary War. The red brick path takes you past such sites as Boston Common, the Paul Revere House, the Benjamin Franklin statue, site of the Boston Massacre and the Bunker Hill Monument.

Boston’s many other attractions include the Boston Harbor with its cruises and walks along the new Harborwalk. Spend hours immersed in the Boston Public Library, the nation’s “first large free public library”, with its 8.9 million books plus “rare books and manuscripts, maps, musical scores and prints. Explore the 265-acre Arnold Arboretum with its world-class collection of plants and 265 species of birds. At the Boston National Historic Park, you’ll learn about the events that led to the American Revolution.

Performing arts lovers will want to check out the Boston Opera House, Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Cutler Majestic Theater and the Boston Pops, especially on the Fourth of July.

Boston is one of the most expensive cities in the country. And some Boston senior living options reflect this. For example, a one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $5,089 a month, according to a Genworth Financial study on long-term care. A private room in a nursing home will average $354 a day, while a semi-private averages $337 a day.
