Just West of Boston
The Scandinavian Assisted Living Center is located in the village of West Newton, Massachusetts on a lovely, tree-lined residential street. It is conveniently located near historic Brookline and close to nationally cultural institutions and medical facilities. Our close proximity to Brookline and Boston allows our residents access to all they have to offer. Public bus transportation is available in front of the building to parts of Newton and Waltham. Churches, synagogues, restaurants, bakeries, shops, supermarkets and florists are all located nearby, as well as a pharmacy, movie theatre and public library.
The Scandinavian Living Center offers residents a unique community-centered senior living experience in Newton, Massachusetts. Every aspect of our offerings is influenced by our fundamental belief that age does not and should not limit one’s participation as a member of the community.
Assisted living should be a positive experience that invites elders to continue leading satisfying, connected lives. At the SLC we have developed an approach that balances high-quality care with respect and empowerment.
We have taken the best parts of the Scandinavian approach to elder care (like respecting individual needs and encouraging engagement within the broader community) and created a community open to elders from all cultures and backgrounds.
- Our bright, clean design fosters a comfortable atmosphere that feels more like a neighborhood than a traditional assisted living facility.
- Our small size (40 apartments) and long-serving, dedicated staff ensure that you or your loved one will be seen, known, and cared for as an individual.
- Our organization has a long-established history of caring for elders since 1917.
- Our exceptional fitness program has helped many of our residents maintain a healthier lifestyle.
- We encourage outside organizations to hold meetings and events in our spaces. This allows our residents to connect with the broader community in authentic and meaningful ways, removing any sense of isolation.
