While assisted living and independent living are quite different, we do offer both at our retirement community in Marlborough. Independent living is for those who are able to live on their own, but appreciate the social aspects and amenities that come with being part of a community. Those in assisted living need a bit more extra support and assistance.

Assisted Living in MA

When residing in an assisted living community, residents can still live independently, but they receive daily help with personal-care services, and they have the luxury of taking part in ongoing activities. Housekeeping is included with the rent along with utilities and transportation.

At New Horizons at Marlborough, we provide a calendar of events, and we offer off-campus adventures into surrounding towns. There is a nurse available 24-hours, so our residents always feel safe and secure.

Independent Living in MA

Residing in an independent living community means maintaining one’s independence while enjoying the benefits of a close-knit community.

When we get older, maintaining a home can seem like a major chore, which is why many folks choose to reside in an independent living community. It’s an amazing feeling when you don’t need to worry about mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters, or dusting the entire home. Independent living communities allow seniors to be around other seniors and socialize. Independent senior living communities cater to the social needs of the senior residents. Typically, residents in independent living communities must pay for additional support, such as assistance with activities of daily living, separately as it is not part of their package.

Typical services included with independent living care are landscaping, housekeeping, social events, transportation, wellness programs, and recreational activities.
