Independent Living

Independent Living Options for Every Lifestyle and Budget

Hebrew SeniorLife’s approach to independent living supports active seniors as they pursue their unique interests, achieve new goals, and focus on what matters most to them every day. Our independent living communities offer you the chance for vibrant social and intellectual lives alongside the services and amenities that make daily life more carefree.

What is Independent Living?

Independent living refers to senior living communities that are primarily designed to serve the social needs of residents, as most are able to live independently without much support. Home maintenance, security, social programming, and other included senior living services vary by community.

Whether  you’re looking for a suburban residence within a larger continuing care retirement community like Orchard Cove or NewBridge on the Charles, a rental at Center Communities of Brookline or Simon C. FIreman Community, or a beachfront apartment at Jack Satter House, we offer vibrant senior living options throughout the Greater Boston area. We invite you to explore and find the right fit for you.
