What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lynn
Lynn is home to three assisted living residences, as assisted living facilities are called in Massachusetts. Nearby are another 60 assisted living residences, dotted throughout neighboring towns including Quincy, Danvers and Brighton. These assisted living facilities provide personal care services to aging adults, including medication management and assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and grooming, all within a safe residential environment.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lynn
- Because of Lynn's location next to the ocean, the hot summers and cold winters of the Boston area are a bit milder. Summer brings thunderstorms to the area, while New England's infamous "nor'easter" storms bring heavy snow and rain in winter.
- The entire state of Massachusetts is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
- Lynn is home to many historic sites, and the Lynn Memorial Auditorium serves as a draw for visiting concerts and shows. The Boston Red Sox sometimes play exhibition games at Fraser Field, which is home to a minor league baseball team as well. Single game tickets are only $6.00, making local minor league games an affordable entertainment option for most seniors.
- The Lynn area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the North Shore Medical Center's Union Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Although Lynn is not directly located on any interstate highway, it's a stop on the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority's light rail lines. Rail and MBTA buses connect Lynn to Boston, and from time to time, ferry service is also available. Seniors can get reduced fairs on MBTA transport via a Senior CharlieCard.
- Lynn has an array of community resources for seniors, including Greater Lynn Senior Services, an organization that provides legal advocacy and counsel, transportation and exercise programs to local seniors, as well as a senior center sponsored by the Lynn Council on Aging.
