Marlborough and Boston Assisted Living
This section describes both of the inexpensive not-for-profit
New Horizons retirement communities developed by Cummings
Foundation. New Horizons at Marlborough, Massachusetts
is located just north of U.S. Route 20. It has a beautiful
country setting near Longfellow's historic Wayside
Inn at the end of Wilson Street.
New Horizons at Choate is near historic
Horn Pond at 21 Warren Avenue in Woburn. It typically
has a waiting list of about three to six months. The
recently enlarged Marlborough residence, however,
typically has only a very short waiting list, or none
at all, due to its much larger campus.
Just about everyone looks forward
to retirement as a time to relax and enjoy life. Often,
though, we get too consumed by daily responsibilities
to fully relish the leisure time we've worked so hard
to gain. That's where New Horizons can make quite
Wonderful senior living
at non-denominational New Horizons offers the perfect
blend of convenience, flexibility, and personal services.
Many seniors at both of these fine suburban Boston communities
find that their independence increases after
moving in, because New Horizons takes care of all those
burdensome, time-consuming responsibilities. That allows
residents to live life to their fullest!
Assisted and Independent
New Horizons living
means beautiful, spacious, private apartments (no two
are identical) which become residents' individual, unique
homes. Decorate with your own furnishings and style.
Welcome family and friends as you like. Come and go
as you please!
One of the finest aspects
of New Horizons, and many other very good retirement
communities, is the wonderfully supportive new relationships
residents develop among themselves, and often with their
caregivers. This wonderful opportunity manifests itself
in so many ways, with totally renewed feelings of looking
forward to the next day and the next activity, and really
enjoying the company of fellow residents.
Enjoy three gourmet
meals in elegant dining rooms, and share lots of social
and recreational activities with warm, interesting neighbors.
Just leave the cooking, cleaning, utilities, transportation,
real estate taxes, maintenance, and snow shoveling to
New Horizons. You have more important things to do!
There are always stimulating
health programs and workshops, crafts, bridge and poker
clubs, indoor and outdoor gardening, 24-hour front desk
service, several well-stocked libraries, and on-site
health facilities and religious services, as well as
intergenerational programs, cultural events, local excursions,
cocktail parties, and so much more. Do as much or as
little as you want - this is your home.

Horizons - and for that matter all other Framingham,
Massachusetts area assisted living communities we know
of - very often demonstrate greatly renewed zest for
life within a matter of months. This joie de vivre
is particularly noticeable for residents who have lived

multiple selections for entrees and side dishes, as

cookies, or teach a grandchild how to make Grandma's
favorite spaghetti sauce or Grandpa's Five-Alarm Chili!
