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. The video above offers a great deal of information and gives the viewer a glimpse inside the warm, welcoming community at New Horizons.

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 a difference.

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!

In 2015, New Horizons at Marlborough was awarded the “Best of Assisted Living in Marlborough” award for receiving consistently high ratings on SeniorAdvisor.com, a national ratings and reviews site for senior care and services. Winners of this honor rank in the top 1 percent of senior care providers nationwide. Watch coverage of this award in the below video from WMCT Magazine.

Assisted and Independent Living

Residents at New Horizons Retirement Communities, Independent and Assisted Living, Marlborough, Choate - Woburn

New Horizons living means beautiful, spacious, private apartments (no two are identical), These soon 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!

Becoming a New Horizons resident

Residents at New Horizons Retirement Communities, Independent and Assisted Living, Marlborough, Choate - Woburn

Before a new resident moves in, there are some simple forms to sign, and there are no long-term leases. All New Horizons residents complete a Residence Agreement, however, which may be canceled without penalty at any time with two months' written notice, or promptly following a resident's passing.

A good retirement community will help its residents be as independent as possible, while providing ready assistance when needed. New Horizons is designed for seniors who still enjoy an active lifestyle, and who also want convenient abundant opportunities for socialization and friendship. All rates include three gracious meals daily, plus housekeeping, utilities, linens, local transportation, and a wide range of activities at this very affordable Marlborough, MA assisted living center.

New Horizons is an open and accepting community. We celebrate the diversity of our residents and staff. Our differences do not define us, but rather inform and enrich our overall living experience. New Horizons is welcoming to people of all backgrounds, and our current resident population reflects this central philosophy, as people of different races, religions, geographic origins, financial backgrounds and life experiences have come together to form one dynamic community.

Geri-psych Assisted Living

Residents at New Horizons Retirement Communities, Independent and Assisted Living, Marlborough, Choate - Woburn

Robbie's Place, located on the second floor of New Horizons at Marlborough's assisted living facility, is one of a few enhanced care programs in the Commonwealth that supports seniors coping with mental health struggles such as depression and anxiety. Using a traditional assisted living setting and supplementing care with psychiatric experise, many residents will recover to live either independently or transition to New Horizons.

New Horizons provides meals for Hearthstone and Robbie's Place residents and, of course, provides the upkeep of residents' individual suites. It does not in any way, however, supervise or direct Hearthstone or Robbie's Place management or caregivers, or the actual residential programs in these facilities, and has no ownership interest.

Forms

 

Both New Horizons are strictly not-for-profit communities owned by Cummings Foundation, a $1.2 billion net worth charitable foundation, founded in 1986 by William S. and Joyce M. Cummings. New Horizons in Marlborough has grown steadily under the same Executive Director since before its opening in 1994.
