Standish Village Serves Seniors of Greater Boston & Beyond

Standish Village serves local seniors from Boston, MA and all throughout greater Boston and the South Shore, MA. Our residents typically come from Dorchester’s many neighborhoods as well as Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, Roslindale, Milton, Randolph, Quincy, Weymouth, Hingham, Braintree, Cohasset, Scituate, Duxbury, Marshfield, and Rockland, MA. Of course, anyone is welcome to move to Standish Village, no matter where they presently reside. It is quite common for residents to move from out of state to be closer to their adult children.

Our location in the Lower Mills neighborhood of Dorchester and Milton offers easy access to local attractions, like St. Gregory’s Parish and JFK Library as well as to greater Boston’s cultural sites and health care facilities. Our residents get out and about all over the region.
