Independent living communities are designed for senior citizens who do not need assistance. At New Horizons at Marlborough, we do have 24-hour staff available if there is an emergency, which is rarely offered at other independent living care communities in Massachusetts. Typically, at other independent living communities, residents will need to make their own medical arrangements or find nursing care. If your loved one is 55+, independent living might be a great option, as he or she can live independently while choosing to join in on communal activities. Additionally, all the maintenance work is done for them such as lawn mowing and snow removal.
Aside from not having to worry about maintenance, there are a variety of benefits when residing at an independent living community. There’s more room for socialization, as independent living communities offer plenty of activities ranging from trivia nights to book clubs to cocktail hours.
One of the biggest perks at New Horizons is the all-inclusive rent which means TV, internet, heat, electric, and water are bundled into the monthly rent. Seniors don’t have to worry about attending to these bills and can spend time enjoying their day.
Our independent living community is designed to meet the needs of our residents, from outdoor enthusiasts to seniors who enjoy cozying up to a nice fire. Surrounding the property are gorgeous hiking trails and 40 acres of woods and meadows, as well as 100 acres of conservation land. For our residents with green thumbs, New Horizons at Marlborough boasts an indoor greenhouse and beautiful outdoor gardens.
Our independent living community features spacious apartments, ranging from 600 to 2,000 square feet. The kitchens come equipped with full appliances, and we offer oversized bathrooms with the option of a shower, bathtub, or both. Don’t worry about walking up and down stairs to the laundry room, as most of our apartments come with a washer/dryer unit. The summer months can get extremely humid in Massachusetts, so we’ve also made sure our apartments are fully air-conditioned.
At Meadows 370, residents can enjoy a daily breakfast buffet, or in the evening, they can head over to Meadows 420 for dinner. With our Computer Learning Center, residents can browse the web or brush up on their computer skills. We also provide on-campus banking, a full-time hair and beauty salon, indoor exotic fish pond, and a large heated indoor lap pool.
