Assisted living report sheds light on 'longevity economy'

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 11:07:10 GMT

The assisted living industry had a roughly $5 billion impact on the Massachusetts economy in 2015, and that number could swell as the large Baby Boomer population seeks alternatives to nursing home care, an industry report released Tuesday found. A report commissioned by the Massachusetts Assisted Living Association found that the state's roughly 240 licensed assisted living facilities spent $2.7 billion in 2015 on things like construction and operations, and accounted for another $2.26 billion in indirect economic contributions, for a total $4.96 billion impact on the state economy.




Uxbridge DPW says South St. paving was needed, not done for soil project

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 02:12:51 GMT

Sherman told selectmen Monday that South Street was paved in December because state Chapter 90 funds carried over from a fiscal 2015 supplement and an affordable bid from a local asphalt supplier made it feasible to repair the severely degraded road. Mr. Sherman called the road work, which had been requested for years, "a footprint project," done simply with reclamation and repaving.
