The Garden – Spring 2024

Edelweiss Village, one of Boston’s premiere senior living communities, provides residents with opportunities to enjoy an active, healthy, and social lifestyle. Here you will find an exceptional level of assisted living senior care. Welcoming all faiths and backgrounds, residents enjoy delicious meals, stimulating social interaction and private spacious apartments.

The values that originated over 100 years ago are still very much intact: residents are treated with respect, kindness, and compassion. From the moment you walk through the doors at Edelweiss Village, you will experience the ultimate in “Gemutlichkeit “– the essence of the warmth and caring.

A neighborhood of Boston, the 14-acre campus features beautifully landscaped grounds and lush scenery. The West Roxbury Deutsches Altenheim campus, widely respected for its exceptional staff and high quality of life, offers a superior assisted living experience.

“I would like to extend my family and my thanks to you and the entire staff at German Centre for the excellent senior care that my mother received. Her experience at Senior Place over the past year was exceptional. We all feel that we were able to keep her in the home with us due in a large part by the respite and socialization provided by the wonderful people at Senior Place.”

"I appreciated all of the excellent care my mother received and she loved everyone there from the staff to the residents. All of the skilled nursing staff, CNTs, PT/OT, case manager, social worker, housekeeping, dining, activities, and receptionists were so helpful and always had a genuine caring personality. It was hard to say “goodbye” when I picked up mom, because everyone has been so nice. You have a “top notch” staff and keep up the great work!"
