Pavilion Under Renovation

Pavilion at The Boston Home During Renovations, Summer 2011

In the next few years, The Boston Home is facing more than $800,000 in capital needs improvements that will make an immediate impact on the quality of life for residents by ensuring that their living environment remains safe and healthy.

The Boston Home has a multi-year maintenance and capital need plan for our facility. The goals of this maintenance plan are:

  • To maintain our facility for the long-term.
  • To ensure the safety and comfort of our residents.
  • To improve energy efficiency and save money on energy use.

The Site

Our seven-acre campus includes the original building from the 1920’s, plus an attached 40,000 square foot addition built in 1994, which contains the living quarters for most of our 96 residents. The Pavilion at The Boston Home, which  was renovated in 2011, is a dedicated space used for our day program serving 35 participants, plus staff training and educational programs.  The Cotting Building is a former staff dormitory currently used for storage with potential for higher usage in the future.

Current Capital Improvement Projects

We are currently seeking grant and individual funding for a series of capital improvement projects to ensure our facility is properly maintained.

  • exterior ‘skin’ [EFIS] and insulation replacement
  • Replace the roof on the Cotting Building 
  • HVAC study to upgrade and increase efficiency
  • replace exterior doors for improved handicapped accessibility
  • upgrading flooring, doors, windows and furniture
  • patio area improvements: pavement repair and seal coating, adding railings and waterproofing
  • upgrading an aging nurse call system

Capital Project Successes

In the Fall of 2011, The Boston Home completed a $150,000 exterior and interior renovation of the Pavilion Wellness & Education Center with funding support from the Yawkey Foundations, Citizens Foundation, Biogen Idec and individual donors
