Franklin, Massachusetts Assisted Living Community
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Franklin – and throughout all Emeritus Senior Living communities – live by. It's a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful – a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our retirees who have chosen our community for their home.
Emeritus at Franklin is a brand new senior residential community. This community is being specifically designed and built for seniors who need some assistance with daily living, such as medication management, dressing, or bathing. Emeritus at Franklin also includes a Memory Care Neighborhood for those who are experiencing some memory loss. As we get ready to open our doors, we invite you learn more about us!
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Franklin is located in beautiful community of Franklin, Massachusetts, just 22 miles southwest of Boston. It is conveniently located near I-495, offering easy access to Boston, Worcester, and Providence, Rhode Island. It is a town steeped in history, as it was first settled in 1660.

It has a vibrant commercial center and boasts many historical sites of interest, including the first public library in the United States, which houses some of the original books donated by Benjamin Franklin. There are numerous health care facilities in the area, including MetroWest Physician Services, located just a half-mile down the street. And, of course, it is within easy distance of Boston, offering all the cultural and historical sights and events for people of all ages and interests.
A Wonderful Place to Live
We are a sparkling new senior community that offers assisted living and memory care services. Our residents will enjoy a wonderful lifestyle, all with the security of knowing care is available if they need it.
While we have a wide variety of beautiful apartments, we dedicate plenty of common space for visiting, relaxing, reading the paper or enjoying a good book. Emeritus at Franklin provides a concierge who can handle our residents’ special requests. We also have a lobby café, a library and even host the occasional happy hour.
We offer the option of extended care, including our innovative memory care program, Join Their Journey.® This means that our residents can have a constant community of friends and staff, even though other aspects of their lives and health-care needs may be changing.
And with our Personal Transitions programs and our financial resource options, we have a wealth of tools to help families with the sometimes difficult transition into senior living. Emeritus at Franklin is committed to making this change a positive experience for everyone, and will help your loved one adjust to their new surroundings.
We hire the people you would hire. If you were going to hire one person to care for your family member, you would look for the person who will provide care, but also respect and friendship. We feel the same way. We seek to hire only those individuals who are passionate about senior care as their occupation.
As a new team, we are committed to delivering the highest standards of care and service to our residents and their families. All of our caregivers undergo extensive, ongoing training. Their skills and knowledge encompass the aging process, accident prevention, communication techniques, infection control, and how to manage disruptive behaviors. They also attend intensive training for our memory care program, Join Their Journey. All employees understand the changes and challenges that occur with age, and with memory loss.
An application has been submitted to the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) and that certification to operate as an Assisted Living Residence is pending at this time.
