Our Advantage


Step into Waban Health Center, a home away from home, overlooking one of the most prestigious golf courses in Massachusetts. Our facility is conveniently located across from the Waban Green Line stop on the MBTA in the tightly-knit village of Waban, in the heart of Newton. Here you will find caring, experienced staff, some of who have been employed at Waban for decades. Our diverse staff speaks a variety of languages: Spanish, French Creole and Albanian, and we will always go above and beyond to make our residents comfortable and keep them in the best of health.

We offer a secure unit in addition to our regular units, and our devoted team works passionately to ensure the highest quality of life for each resident, no matter their needs. We are one of the only skilled nursing facilities in the area with extensive expertise in helping patients with dementia and mental illness. Waban offers a vibrant activities program with many community volunteers coming to spend time with residents. Take advantage of our gardening program, our book clubs, baking classes, our free WIFI, cable TV and beauty salon services, and our special Sunshine club, a unique memory-boosting program. Join our monthly outings where we visit local attractions and have an all-around great time. Religious services are offered in the facility, including weekly visits by a nun, a monthly Catholic Mass, and Protestant services. Our popular Mens’ Club is a great draw and a representative of the Veterans Association meets regularly with our veterans.

Come see for yourself why Waban Health Center is right for you!
