You don’t need to go to Boston to find ideal, modern senior living

More older adults are moving away from big cities, favoring quality of life among good weather and fewer people, close to family. Our community meets many of these needs and more. Like in Beantown, you’ll find cultural events, entertainment and a wealth of activity. It’s all here, so you don’t need to brave crowded streets. For instance, in one day at The Overlook, you can dine with friends, attend an art class, relish a concert and other pursuits.

Resident Heath B. has said that The Overlook offers lots of open space and gives her the feeling of a rural setting with all the comforts. Dick and Gail Ziegler enjoy a variety of opportunities for socializing, including activities, hobbies and delicious meals. They also like being close to their children and grandchildren and having access to five-star-rated healthcare with our LifeCare contract.

Our 450 acres in Worcester County let you relax and breathe fresh air, away from noise and pollution. As the seasons change, you may watch the grass grow, see flurries fly, peek at colorful foliage and catch more breathtaking views. If you want to explore the grounds at your own pace, you can do activities such as bird watching, strolling our walking trails or cross-country skiing.

At the Overlook, you’re not just another neighbor across the road. You’re among a community of like-minded friends. If you’re in the mood to socialize, you can enjoy crafting, cribbage, programs and events. If you want to volunteer, our residents hold committees to support our library, recycling programs and other interests.

The Overlook brings the best of big city life to a quiet setting with access to activities nearby. Minutes away lies the town of Sturbridge, known as a romantic destination with interesting sites, including Old Sturbridge Village, the largest outdoor history museum in the Northeast. It’s also a perfect place to hunt for antiques at shops or the famous Brimfield Antique Show held three times a year. Charlton itself provides plenty of charm, with historic locales such as Charlton Center and Northside Village. And if you want to skip to Boston for more fun, it’s only an hour away. You can later return home to the comfort and safety of The Overlook.

Add it all up, and your future looks great from here.
