The house is getting to be too much for my parents to handle. What are their options for housing if they sell their home?

Braintree has many options for seniors who sell their homes. The Braintree Housing Authority manages senior only and mixed family unit developments in town. Their telephone number is 781-848-1484 for more information. There is also the option of assisted living facilities. If one’s ability to care for themselves is declining, local nursing homes may be considered.
