Anchored upon a hilltop in Groveland, and surrounded by 90 acres of rolling woodlands and fields, you’ll find Nichols Village, a nonprofit senior living community uniquely designed for independent people ages 62 and up.

The original vision of Nichols Village was fostered by philanthropist, businessman and lifelong resident of Groveland, N. Woodburn Nichols. His life’s dream was to build a community for seniors in the town he grew up in. After his passing in 1925, and with his dream in heart and mind, the trustees of the N. Woodburn Nichols’ Trust successfully fulfilled Mr. Nichols' wish. Nichols Village opened its doors in the spring of 2004 and has been managed from the start by Bethany Community Services Inc., a long-established nonprofit property management company based in Haverhill.

The Nichols Village lifestyle includes 78 apartments and 16 cottages with single-level living and bright, natural lighting. Apartments are of various sizes and feature fully applianced kitchens, master bedroom suites with walk-in closets, stackable front-load washers and dryers, and assigned covered parking and storage units. Cottages boast an open concept, all featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms, three-sided gas fireplaces, attached garages and private patios.

Residents have exclusive use of common indoor spaces featuring a great room, several community lounges, a library, computer lab, a hair salon, as well as arts and crafts, game and billiards rooms. Also included are meal plans and bi-weekly housekeeping, exterior and interior maintenance, bus transportation to social venues, and an abundance of organized social, cultural and educational activities. You’ll also find a variety of health and wellness programs, a fully equipped community fitness center, an indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool, and walking trails.

Optional Coordinated Home Care services are offered at Nichols Village and provided by two well-established home care companies, Home Health VNA and Right at Home. Residents may contract directly with these companies for “skilled” services such as nursing care and physical, occupational and speech therapies, as well “supportive” care such as meal preparation, bathing, dressing, medication reminders and companion care. Residents may pay for home care services on an as-needed basis, and receive care within the comfort of their own apartments or cottages.

Nichols Village is a welcoming and vibrant retirement community where you will find a strong sense of community, security and independence. An open house is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 28, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., with a snow date of Sunday, Jan. 29. Be sure to ask about how to get on the Nichols Village priority wait list.
