Assisted Living in Somerville, Massachusetts

Somerville is a community in the Greater Boston Metropolitan area located just to the north of Cambridge. It’s home to 81,360 residents, of whom only 9% are seniors aged 65 or older. The lower senior population may be due to the student population attending one of the several world-renowned universities in the neighborhood, including Tufts University. Somerville gets more than its fair share of rain and snow but has very pleasant summers that last long into the fall.

Seniors in Somerville have easy access to world-renowned hospitals across the Charles River in Boston, public lectures by world-famous scientists, authors or politicians at Harvard or MIT in nearby Cambridge, several parks in the vicinity, professional sports teams and lots of great places to eat.

The average cost of assisted living in Somerville, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Study 2020, is $6,100. This cost can fluctuate based on the facility chosen and the services offered.
