Staff & Board

Our Staff

For many families, one of the most important factors in choosing an assisted living facility is the staff.

At the Scandinavian Living Center, we are proud of the dedication, warmth, and longevity of our staff members. Our exceptional staff retention allows us to provide consistently excellent service and care in line with our mission.

A big benefit of our intentionally small size is that our staff is able to get to know each resident by name. Each of our staff members takes pride in his or her contributions to our community.


Our Board

The Scandinavian Charitable Society of Greater Boston's board is comprised of a large number of dedicated volunteers. Their generous support helps to ensure the Scandinavian Living Center's continued success. We are ever grateful for their commitment to the Scandinavian Living Center’s mission.
