Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group's Allerton House Assisted Living Community will celebrate its 20th anniversary in the new year as demand for assisted living communities grow.

Allerton House at Hancock Park in Quincy resident Maura Cahill enjoys lifting weights as part of her regular exercise routine.

The increasing number of older adults will continue to fuel the need for senior housing, personalized care and socialization services such as those provided by assisted living communities in Massachusetts.

The U. S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2050 the number of individuals 65 or older in the United States will be 83.7 million – nearly double the figure of 43.1 million in 2012. The increasing number of older adults will continue to fuel the need for senior housing, personalized care and socialization services such as those provided by assisted living communities in Massachusetts. In 2016, Allerton House at Hancock Park Assisted Living Community in Quincy, MA will turn twenty.

Maura Cahill, a resident who moved to Allerton House at Hancock Park in 2014, is very pleased with her home in the Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group residence. “It’s very convenient here,” she says. “I can come and go as I please.”

In Cahill’s case, she is often on the go, enjoying the community’s musical entertainment programs and participating in a variety of other offerings. She notes, “I exercise every morning, and enjoy the trivia and quiz-type activities. We keep busy here.” Other activities and social events include a singing club, on-site events and outings, a men’s group and art classes.

The Massachusetts Assisted Living Facilities Association (Mass ALFA) reports that the experience of living in an assisted living community offers individuals both “flexibility and choice,” and that residents report a high level of satisfaction.

Thanks to the convenience of the Quincy’s community’s amenities and services, Maura Cahill has the time to take in her favorite activities. She says, “I have no cooking to do, no washing to do, and I always have help when I need it.”

A hallmark of assisted living communities is the peace of mind they provide by freeing residents of responsibility for housework and home maintenance so they can enjoy greater leisure with family and friends. Three meals a day, personalized care services when needed and a 24-hour emergency response system are all part of services at Allerton House in Quincy.

Allerton House at Hancock Park in Quincy is an intimate community with 42 rental apartments and is part of a continuum of care within the same building, offering short- and long-term rehabilitation at Hancock Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
