What Does Independent Senior Living in Methuen Look Like?
Not All senior Living Communities are Created Equal
The Woods at Merrimack Retirement Community, located near the beautiful Merrimack Valley Golf Club, opens early in 2020 and boasts one of the most impressive senior living communities in the Methuen area. While many independent living communities use the term all-inclusive, the definition varies, leaving residents surprised to find what isn’t included in the cost of their rent.
Breathtaking outdoor spaces, including manicured courtyards, pickleball and bocce ball courts, verdant gardens, an open-air grill, dog park, fire pit, gazebo, and putting green. Because spending time in nature produces physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits, residents never pay above and beyond their rent to access any of the greenspaces at The Woods.
24/7 dining experience, which includes access to gourmet food any time the craving strikes. Meals are prepared by an Executive Chef with years of experience in the kitchen, and dietary needs and preferences are always accommodated.
Concierge services for the most luxurious retirement experience possible. Our friendly and courteous concierges are experts in local culture and services, ensuring you have an informed recommendation whether you need a restaurant suggestion or a good manicure.
Complimentary local transportation gets you from here to there and never costs extra. Whether you have an appointment with primary care or want to do a little shopping, you can ride with us at no extra charge.
Things to do. A busy activity calendar accommodates introverts and extroverts alike! Fitness classes, board games, sports activities, trivia, and a wide variety of entertainment including live music and movies in the on-site theater give you a plethora of options, all included in your monthly rent.
Weekly housekeeping services are included in your monthly rent to keep your home tidy and keep the luxury in retirement. You can do the tasks you love to do or lean or us – it’s up to you!
Access to on-site amenities, like the library, gym, hair salon, and computer center. You can always utilize these areas of the community at no extra cost – and you don’t even have to brave the heat or the cold to do it!
On-call maintenance to give you peace of mind when things don’t go as planned. When you live at home, a fridge that stops running or a furnace that’s out of commission can cost you a lot of money – and a big headache. When you choose all-inclusive retirement living in Methuen, the only thing you have to do is let us know, and then sit back and relax while our team of professionals takes care of it.

Many residents take advantage of the program to see new places or visit old friends on us. Simply pay for your travel and incidentals and you’re able to enjoy an adventure in your retirement!

Autumn means colder weather, and that could also mean flu season too! It is important to stay warm and safe this season, especially because family and friends are traveling for the holidays!
If you are visiting someone or plan to, make sure you are layering your clothes or dressing appropriately for the weather, staying on top of your health by eating nutritious food, staying active, and getting proper rest. Don't forget to wash your hands and utilize hand sanitizer in public spaces!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and that means food and family! People have different ways to prepare for Thanksgiving.
Some plan out a list, down to the activities and conversations that can take place at the dinner table. These people also take out the recipe books and follow the directions to a tee! Others may take the go-with-the-flow approach and wing it! That includes recipes too.
Which group are you in? No matter your approach, we hope that this holiday season is a fulfilling one!
