Welch Senior Living
Family Owned for Four Generations
Locally based and family owned, Welch Senior Living has been trusted by generations of seniors and their families since 1949. We live on the South Shore, and our communities reflect the unique personalities of the South Shore towns we serve.
When you choose a Welch Senior Living community, you can feel confident that your new home will be well maintained and that all services, amenities, and care offered will be of the highest quality.
The Welch family’s dedication and commitment to helping others began in 1949 when the late Rita and Thomas (Frank) Welch founded the John Scott House in their home in Braintree. At that time, their vision was to provide care and health services to frail elders. Rita was following in the footsteps of her mother, a nurse who cared for frail elders in the city of Quincy.
Under the leadership of third- and fourth-generation family members, Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group grew to employ more than 2,000 caregivers and staff to serve the needs of older adults and their families in 19 healthcare and senior housing locations. Today, Welch Senior Living concentrates on service enriched residential options, and owns and operates assisted living residences, senior independent living communities, memory care residences, and a home care company, with the continuing founding philosophy to make residents feel part of a family.
As the senior housing and healthcare industry evolved, Welch Senior Living has stayed at the forefront. The company pioneered the design of the integrated campus continuum of care and distinguished itself in the development of other healthcare and housing solutions for seniors. In addition, Welch was one of the first companies to establish adult day health and child day care programs and home care services to complement its residential and skilled nursing care.
