    What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Groton

    West Groton, a small suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, is rich in precolonial and Revolutionary War history. Today, the picturesque town strives to preserve its rich history and scenic views, with emphasis on land conservation and open public green spaces and trails. The population of West Groton is just 11,000, 20.7 percent of whom are seniors over 60. There are 60 assisted living facilities in the greater Boston area to serve these seniors. 

    The State of Massachusetts regulates assisted living facilities via the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. This body composes and enforces regulations, including the types of rooms and bathroom facilities and compliance with federal and state emergency evacuation requirements. Assisted living facilities must have a designated Service Coordinator responsible for overseeing patient care.
