    Review by Local Professional
    Visitor

    The only assisted living community in Boston. Located 1 block from symphony hall, it is warm, friendly and ethnically diverse. Recommended for anyone that loves Boston and wants to remain in the city. However, they do not have a memory program and should be avoided if you or your loved one is suffering from any form of dementia.
