The Pursuit of Something More

Artisan at Hudson is more than just a retirement community — it’s a home. That’s why we go above and beyond to provide the absolute best for our residents. Our programs and amenities are thoughtfully designed to provide residents the chance to explore their passions. This groundbreaking, inclusive lifestyle concept allows you to create a way of life as uniquely individual as you are.

Embrace the Artisan Lifestyle

Sip chai on the balcony as you watch the sun set. Enjoy a class with local artisans. Tend to your patio planters. Walk the dog on the Assabet River Rail Trail, which adjoins our campus… or, let her play in the courtyard. Join a group of friends in the lounge for a cocktail or, on cool evenings, indulge in conversation around the fire pit. You might want to head into Hudson to try the latest restaurant, or simply stay at home and have a tête-à-tête with a new friend on the veranda. Why not just settle in for a good read on a lazy Saturday in inspiring surroundings? At Artisan at Hudson, the choice is all yours.

Here at Artisan, you might hear staff and residents mention the MOSAIC lifestyle — our dynamic motto for engaged living. Here’s the breakdown on what it all means:

  • Movement: Exercise, dance, sport… our bodies were designed to move. The rewards for an active lifestyle are reflected in body, mind and spirit.
  • Outreach: Giving ourselves, both in time and talent, benefits others and returns a dividend in the form of happiness and sense of purpose.
  • Social: We don’t just enjoy each other’s company, we need one another. Frequent engagement with others promotes emotional and mental health, which in turn, enhances longevity.
  • Arts: Humans are hard-wired to crave beauty. The visual and performing arts give us an outlet for creativity, both in terms of making and appreciating art.
  • Intellectual: Never stop learning. Staying mentally active is a critical component of aging gracefully. Constantly challenging ourselves with new ideas sharpens the mind.
  • Curiosity: The freedom to explore may be the most rewarding aspect of retirement, as it allows you to follow your inquisitive mind down whichever path it leads.
