Assisted Living 

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.

The Nordic Hall also provides a meeting place for many clubs in the area, enabling residents to continue lifelong hobbies and pursuits as well as maintain contact with old friends and the broader community. For example, a group comes to the Center through the Newton Parks and Recreation Department each week to play cards and socialize for the afternoon; and other professional and outside groups use the hall for meetings, seminars and workshops. Many opportunities for enjoyment and engagement can be found right here.

Over 2000 people visit the Scandinavian Assisted Living Center every month to participate in our activities. Each Saturday, the Kaffestugan (café) is staffed by volunteers serving a variety of sandwiches, desserts and refreshments. It is a way for people from the community to come in and socialize. The residents of the SLC never feel isolated as there is always a sense of vibrancy around them and a flurry of visitors within their surroundings.

Our goals are twofold. We seek to be a destination for residents and their neighbors and friends in the community to enjoy stimulating events; and we strive to carry out our vital mission: to provide elders with the assistance they need to lead fulfilling, connected and culturally-rich lives.

Our success is based on the belief that "age does not limit one's personhood."
