    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hyannis

    Hyannis, Massachusetts, is a bustling village in Barnstable and was once known simply as “The Port” due to its marine activities and over 200 shipmasters living there in the 18th century. Seniors can explore the village’s rich history, breathe in the fresh sea air and choose from 10 Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) nearby, with one in Hyannis and nine in the surrounding area. ALFs are facilities that provide a supervised residential setting for seniors. The Massachusetts Office of Elder Affairs governs the policies of these facilities. Some services within the facility may include organized social activities, medication management and prepared meals.
