Summary of Charges

Both New Horizons and The Meadows are top quality, assisted living, senior rental communities in Massachusetts, with no endowments or community fees at either facility. The overall community easily accommodates multi-generational residencies, especially because programs at New Horizons tend to be completely separate from those at The Meadows.

New Horizons offers both independent living and assisted living, with three gourmet meals per day included with each program. Also included in all New Horizons rates (below) are weekly light housekeeping, local group transportation, activities, local area phone service, free basic cable, linens, utilities, parking, maintenance, etc.


Payment of the first month's Service Fee is required to reserve a suite, but this monthly service fee is then 100 percent refundable at any time before move in. For any reason at all. All residents pay a 100 percent refundable $30,000 Entrance Fee and furnish a guaranty from a suitable individual, usually a family member, prior to moving in. Cummings Foundation, Inc., the entity that owns NHM, is a not-for-profit private operating foundation with current net assets of more than $1.3 billion. The additional cost for a second occupant in a New Horizons independent or assisted living apartment is only $100 per month for three meals daily.

Independent Living in The Meadows
The Meadows apartments, on the other hand, provide "very independent" living accommodations. Most rates for units in The Meadows buildings run between $2,000 and $3,400 and include a full American-style breakfast every morning for one resident per apartment. Residents may choose additional amenities such as three full meals daily, housekeeping, and acces to scheduled transportation. The rate for all Meadows units also includes heating, air-conditioning and hot water, as well as maintenance, parking, snow removal, etc.

There is no extra charge for more than one person occupying the same unit of The Meadows, other than the cost of any meals selected by the additional occupant. There are also 24 fully independent units called "The Cottages." Suites for one or two occupants, with no meals provided, begin at just $995 per month.

Independent Living in New Horizons
Independent living suites in the main New Horizons building at 400 Hemenway Street are relatively all-inclusive, except for personal care services if they are later needed. All New Horizons rates, for both independent living or assisted living units, include three gourmet meals daily. They also include weekly housekeeping services and much more comprehensive activities programs and physical fitness classes, including a very large indoor, waist-deep, heated lap swimming pool. Local transportation is also included for New Horizons residents for scheduled shopping trips, as well as trips to local events, pre-scheduled medical appointments, etc.

Monthly rates for independent living suites in New Horizons mostly range from $2,900 per month for studio apartments, from $3,400 for one-bedroom apartments, and from $4,100 for two-bedroom apartments. Again, the New Horizons charge for a spouse in any of these apartments is just $100 per month, additional, including three meals daily for both residents.

Assisted Living Apartments
Residents who need personal care assistance with the activities of daily living may add that service at any time, even if they do not need any assistance when they first move in. Personal care services are provided through a customized care plan as needed.

This service is actually provided by New Horizons' third-party care provider. The cost for a standard care plan currently adds about $1,200 per month to the rates shown for independent living suites (just above).
