Welcome to Zelma Lacey House

Just like the gas-lit streets of Charlestown, Zelma Lacey House lights your life with care! This beautiful Assisted Living community of 66 studio and one-bedroom apartment homes, many with affordable programs, is situated in the heart of Boston’s historic Charlestown neighborhood– and within minutes of the area’s leading medical facilities.

Although just subway “T” stops away from the Boston Garden, North End, Downtown, Copley and all other Boston neighborhoods and urban amenities, this special location maintains its “town-like” uniqueness. A welcoming farmer’s porch and an award-winning garden with a patio shaded by trellises add a pinch of quiet country for resident enjoyment. …. SHOW MORE
