Reminiscent of a Bavarian village, nestled in the quiet neighborhood of West Roxbury, Deutsches Altenheim is a centerpiece in the Greater Boston community, providing high quality care for all stages of senior life.


Established over a century ago, Deutsches Altenheim began as a retirement residence for elderly German Americans. Today, we proudly serve a diverse community, offering comprehensive senior care services.

Today, the Deutsches Altenheim campus offers several residences: the German Centre, our flagship Nursing Home; Edelweiss Village, our Assisted Living and Memory Care neighborhood; and Senior Place, our Adult Day Health Center.

Our caring and dedicated staff continues to serve seniors with a full range of senior care services. Here on the Deutsches Altenheim continuing care campus you will always be treated with the utmost respect. We consistently deliver the highest quality of senior care. Moreover, we are committed to honoring the vision of our founders by creating warm and caring environments.

Through the continued generosity of supporters, Deutsches Altenheim remains a pillar of the Greater Boston community. The organization proudly offers residents long-term care, post-acute rehabilitation, memory care, adult day health services and assisted living residences.
