New Horizons at Marlborough Retirement Living

Horn Pond

Opened in September 1994, New Horizons at Marlborough, LLC is a wholly owned not-for-profit independent living and assisted living retirement community operated by Cummings Foundation, Inc. For more information on the foundation, visit www.CummingsFoundation.org.

Our community is located on 40 acres of rolling meadows and woodlands, surrounded by deeded conservation land. Abundant animal life, including wild turkeys, foxes, and deer, frequent the property. We are also a fully state-certified assisted living/continuing care retirement community (CCRC) for people 62 years and over who do not require the type of extensive nursing services typically associated with nursing homes.

About Our Private Suites

We are pleased to announce that The Meadows at 370 and 420 Hemenway Street—have earned EPA’s Energy Star rating for overall energy efficiency.

Every suite on our campus is fully private, and each unit has an oversized bathroom, large kitchen or mini-kitchenette, and plenty of large windows.  Suites within the main New Horizons building come equipped with emergency call systems, a telephone, cable, and Internet capability. Additionally, we offer an on-site office for visiting physicians and, upon request, an on-site home health agency will provide personal care services.

Memory and Alzheimer’s Care Program

Our lovely country campus offers a separate specialized program for residents living with Alzheimer’s disease. Our attentive Memory Care Team provides immediate services to 35 residents with a variety of dementia-related issues.

Priority service is available to those who reside in The Meadows apartments as well as seniors in New Horizons who may need Alzheimer’s care in the future.

Residents can also take advantage of Robbie’s Place. This service helps seniors coping with mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.


Both New Horizons are strictly not-for-profit communities owned by Cummings Foundation, one of the largest private foundations in New England. Cummings Foundation awards more than $30 million annually, and has awarded more than $450 million to date to support greater Boston nonprofits.
