Kennedy Apartments also offers comfortably furnished community areas for residents’ use.

Service-Enhanced Independent Living

John F.

Residents also enjoy full use of our many comfortable indoor and outdoor community spaces, including a lovely landscaped patio with umbrella tables. Active seniors may take advantage of an easy walk to Central Square and nearby public transportation.

JFK Apartments is professionally managed by Senior Living Residences, ranked #2 in The Boston Globe’s 2023 List of Top Places to Work in Massachusetts! To be recognized at the very top of this list of employers is an extraordinary honor, made so much more special because this achievement was based on direct input from our associates.
