Senior Living Summer 2018


16 ESSEX MEDIA GROUP SENIOR LIVING SUMMER 2018 Be independent for life at Nichols Village Anchored upon a hilltop in Groveland MA, and surrounded by 90-acres of rolling woodlands and fields, you’ll find Nichols Village, a unique independent living community where active adults 62 years of age and better have chosen to make their home. N. Woodburn Nichols, a businessman and philanthropist who was born and raised in Groveland, had a vision. He dreamt of building a community for “aged men and women” within the town he lived. After his passing in 1925, with his dream in heart and mind, The Trustees of the N. Woodburn Nichols’ Trust worked to fulfill his wish. In 2004, Nichols Village welcomed its first residents and together with staff, created a lifestyle where a strong sense of community and independence is priority. Nichols Village offers 78 apartments and 16 cottages with ample amounts of comfortable living space, one level living, and an abundance of bright, natural lighting. Residents enjoy maintenance free living and bi-weekly housekeeping. Also included is exclusive use of common indoor spaces including the Cannon Hill room with large-screen television, fireplaces, community lounges, dining rooms, café, library, computer room, arts and crafts room, hair salon and a game room with a pool table. Apartments range in size from a 1-bedroom up to a 2-bedroom with a den, all featuring fully applianced kitchens, generous storage spaces, master bedroom walk-in closets, assigned extra storage units, convenient stackable front load washers and dryers in every apartment and reserved covered parking. Cottages feature an open-concept, with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, beautiful kitchens, three-sided gas fireplaces, attached garages with electric door openers, and private patios for relaxing and entertaining. Residents enjoy full-service, restaurant-style dining featuring a warm atmosphere and meal choices ranging from simple to gourmet. There is an abundance of social, cultural, educational, health and wellness programs. Residents may choose a van trip to the Boston Symphony or Music Theater, strength training or yoga in the Cannon Hill room, water aerobics in the indoor heated pool, gardening in the resident community gardens or fix a chair in the resident workshop. When you make the choice to live at Nichols Village you are committing to an independent lifestyle offering opportunities that will maximize your health and wellness goals. In support of your commitment, Nichols Village makes available to you optional Coordinated Home Care services provided by two well-established health care agencies, Home Health VNA and Right at Home.
