Assisted Living in Lowell, Massachusetts

Lowell, Massachusetts, is steeped in American history. This old mill town is known as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution, and many of the buildings of the era have been preserved and turned into the Lowell National Historical Park. As Lowell is part of the greater Boston metro area, seniors have access to an international airport, world-class health care, major sports stadiums including TD Garden and Fenway Park, and a large variety of shopping and dining destinations. The city’s cost of living is close to the national average. Retirement income and Social Security are tax-exempt in Massachusetts, which can make Lowell an attractive place for retirees on a budget to spend their golden years. 

Many elderly Lowell residents choose to take up residence in one of the dozens of assisted living communities in the area. The average monthly cost of accommodations is $6,100
