Mount Pleasant Home Serving the Community Since 1901

Since 1901, Mount Pleasant Home on South Huntington Ave., has been offering the elderly a lovely, caring rest home to live out their golden years.  Since its origin,  the home’s mission is to serve the low income and needy around the City of Boston. But a lot has changed since 1901.

The facility underwent a $20M renovation in 2010 that increased the number of residents from 44 to 60 and was certified as a LEED-GOLD green building.

All residents have a private bedroom and bathroom. The home offers 24-hour personal care assistance, emergency response, medication administration by certified staff, 3 home-style meals daily, complete housekeeping and laundry services, and a variety of interesting and fulfilling activities including outside trips.

Kathy Seaman, Executive Director at Mount Pleasant Home said, “We are very proud of the diversity that Mount Pleasant Home brings to the JP community,” Seaman said, adding that they co-host a monthly dinner with Ethos for the outside LGBT senior community and their residents called “Out4Supper.” About 10% of Mount Pleasant Home’s resident population identifies as LGBT. The Home recently welcomed their first gay resident couple.

One of the things that makes Mount Pleasant Home unique is staff longevity. According to Seaman, over 50% of their staff has worked for the facility for more than 10 years, with two recently celebrating 30 and 40 years at MPH.  Seaman noted that they just recently lost their longest-residing resident who had called Mount Pleasant “Home” for 32 years. “This facility is very much a family for our staff and residents,” Seaman said.
