    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marlborough

    Three assisted living residences, as assisted living facilities are known in Massachusetts, are available to seniors in Marlborough. Another 33 assisted living facilities are located in nearby communities including Framingham, Worcester and Shrewsbury.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marlborough

    •Public transportation provided by the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority provides bus service all around Marlborough, as well as to nearby Framingham, where travelers can make connections to journey to Boston. Local ADA-compliant transportation is available through MetroWest on a reservation-basis for seniors who can't access public bus stops.

    •The entire state of Massachusetts and the city of Marlborough are both members of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that their 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.

    •Marlborough is home to many historic sites, and theater lovers enjoy performances at the local Ghost Light Players theater. All the museums, concerts and culture of Boston, just 30 miles away, are also easily accessible and many area attractions offer senior discounts.

    •The Marlborough area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the UMass Memorial-Marlborough Hospital, as well as the UMass Memorial Medical Center in nearby Worcester, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    Marlborough's weather tends to be hot during the summer, with thunderstorms and intermittent showers breaking the heat. Winter is cold with heavy rain and snow, and freezing temperatures can last until May, which can be a drawback for seniors who enjoy spending time outside.

    •Marlborough has an array of community resources for seniors, including the the city's Council on Aging, an organization that helps seniors with tax abatement applications and prescription medicine reductions, as well as exercise and computer classes, many of which are hosted at the city's senior center.
