What is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living as defined by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in M.G.L. is any entity, however organized, whether conducted for profit or not for profit, which meets all of the following criteria: (a) provides room and board; and (b) provides, directly by its employees or through arrangements with another organization which the entity may or may not control or own, Personal Care Services for three or more adults who are not related by consanguinity or affinity to their care provider; and (c) collects payments or third party reimbursements from or on behalf of Residents to pay for the provision of assistance with the Activities of Daily Living, or arranges for the same.

Assisted Living includes all of the above, but also assumes that you desire a more active degree of assistance day-to-day with certain daily tasks, like showering, dressing and managing medications.

The moment I walked through the front door of Orchard Hill at Sudbury I knew that this was the place I wanted my mom to live. The Administrative Staff have bent over backwards to meet my mother’s needs and went above and beyond making sure that mom’s 100th birthday was celebrated in style. The residents’ commented that it was the best birthday celebration that they had attended.
