Most New Horizons residents are in our Independent Living Program. At some later point, independent residents may need daily personal care assistance – say for medication reminders, help with dressing and/or bathing or escorts to meals and activities. Our Assisted Living and Memory Care Programs allow residents to have a set arrangement of daily care and support, based on their specific needs. Each resident’s care needs are assessed through a careful nursing evaluation. Assisted Living Program charges are billed accordingly.

New Horizons at Marlborough has a special program to encourage more couples. If more than one person is to occupy the apartment, the additional basic monthly fee for the second occupant at New Horizons in Marlborough is only $100 per month (including three meals in Assisted Living and one meal in most independent programs)! Staff will be happy to send floor plans and information about the monthly fee for each specific apartment.

Important Disclosure

Although most seniors would prefer assisted living over nursing home residence, assisted living facilities in Massachusetts may not provide 24-hour skilled nursing care, and they are not appropriate for everyone. Residents come and go as they wish. They are not under constant oversight, and sometimes they make choices that may not appear to be in their own best interests. New Horizons is a not-for-profit community which provides personalized supportive services with the activities of daily living, but does not, and can not, monitor its residents.
