“My mother was a resident of Lasell Village for 13 years. My husband and I spent many hours at the facility during that time and we were always delighted by the facility. The meals were extremely well cooked, with a wonderful menu from which to choose. The apartment was lovely, the rooms were spacious, and the windows allowed lots of light and nice views. The staff were always courteous and responsive There was always so much to do. Mother particularly loved working on her garden and taking classes at Lasell University. The swimming pool delighted her, as well as the scenic settings for her daily walks. Many family members often visited her there and were as impressed as we were by this wonderful alternative living facility. We highly recommend it.”
