I highly recommend Katie Krupka, Director of Placement and Aging Services at Assisted Living Locators. I reached out to Katie when my father was hospitalized after a stroke. Prior to the stroke he had dementia and after the stroke he had additional care needs. From that point on Katie assisted me to find a quality rehab facility close to home and then an assisted living memory care unit for long term care for my father. Katie is very knowledgeable and knows how to navigate the complex health care systems landscape and does it with the utmost professionalism. She stayed in constant contact with me throughout the process and accompanied me on several facility visits. She made a very stressful time so much easier. She truly cares and is a pleasure to partner with! Teri Brand, Wilbraham, MA

Yes, in Western Massachusetts, some communities allow low-income seniors to supplement the cost of assisted living with their assets at a reduced rate. Others work with various Medicaid programs to help seniors remain in assisted living when funds are depleted.


In Massachusetts, assisted living and memory care communities are regulated by the state. Most can assist residents with all activities of daily living, medication management, meals, transportation, housekeeping, maintenance, laundry, and socialization. Private care services can also be added into one’s assisted living apartment if a higher level of care is needed.


Assisted living in Western Massachusetts is a residential model of care and services. This means that residents can remain independent in their own apartments while receiving care and services as needed. Staff is available 24/7, meals are provided, and services like medication management, care oversight, and socialization allow assisted living residents to thrive in their new homes.

Not necessarily. There are various types of senior housing in Western Massachusetts, including subsidized senior housing, 55+ housing, CCRCs (Continuing Care Retirement Communities), life care communities, independent living, assisted living, memory care communities, and nursing homes. Each offers different benefits and services, and it’s important to choose the one that best suits your needs.

Please call me. As a Gerontologist, I have a vast knowledge of the senior care options available locally in Western Massachusetts. Since my service is free, I recommend coming to me first to see if I can help. If I am unable to, I will do my best to share other resources to get you the information you need.
