The Scandinavian Assisted Living Center is located in the village of West Newton, Massachusetts on a lovely, tree-lined residential street. It is approximately ten miles from historic Boston and conveniently close to nationally renowned medical facilities. Our close proximity to Boston allows our residents access to all that Boston has 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 Assisted Living Center offers seniors innovative assisted living, where community, culture and comfort come together. There is a multitude of rich and varied cultural activities for residents, family members and the community-at-large to enjoy. In order to expand our offerings, the Scandinavian Cultural Center was created in 2012 under the guidance of a Cultural Director. We have been proud to present notable art exhibits, theatrical and musical performances, highly regarded speakers, noteworthy lectures, popular movies, and fun and light- hearted children’s programs. Most events are held in our bright and beautiful Nordic Hall which can accommodate 125 guests and is equipped with a state- of-the art audio-visual system.
