Westborough – As the world slowly recovers from the “Great Recession,” there is much to be optimistic about, particularly in Massachusetts, according to economic sociologist Michael Goodman. But although there are definite positive signs things are improving, there are still areas, and sectors, of the state and country that are being left behind, he warned.

Goodman was the guest speaker at the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast at the Doubletree Hotel Feb. 27. He is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Public Policy at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where he directs the Master of Public Policy program. He is also a co-editor of “MassBenchmarks,” the journal of the Massachusetts economy, published by the UMass Donahue Institute in cooperation with the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.

Highlands offers seniors a ‘gracious’ way of life

February 28th, 2014

W Highlands cr

Westborough – Certainly one of the most emotional and often difficult things a family has to face is how elderly parents will live the remainder of their years. It can be hard for a senior member to accept the fact that they should or cannot live in their own home anymore. They may not be ready to move to assisted living or a nursing home and moving in with another family member may not be the preferred choice.

But nowadays, there are many more options such as the Highlands Gracious Retirement Living complex in Westborough. Far more than just a place to reside, it is truly a place where a senior can enjoy a full, active life in a warm, safe and stress-free environment.
