Sign on.

There’s a lot to watch while we’re in the early stages of planning The Perennial on Grove, Goddard-Homestead’s newest senior living community. Sign up and we’ll keep you in the know.


What’s coming.

Still in the conceptual phase, the Perennial on Grove from Goddard-Homestead senior living is likely to open in late 2024. What to expect?

  • A rental community that’s nicely appointed and pleasingly contemporary 
  • Independent living for those eager to maintain their pace and well-being, with an option for supportive services if needed
  • Memory care that gracefully, respectfully serves those who have Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia
  • Services, amenities, and maintenance provided for sweet and easy living

The Perennial on Grove

Here’s to those who endure. In the spirit of the Goddard-Homestead tradition, we serve the good people of Worcester and Central Massachusetts. Our community will honor your determination to bloom bright and colorfully, your eagerness to remain engaged, and your unceasing commitment to living fully every single day.

You're worth it.

That’s why we’re focused on friendship, family time, purposefulness, robust conversation, and laughter – plus a community designed to make all that happen in a snap.


Key facts.


At 781 Grove Street, this 23.7-acre property is the previous home of Saint Peter-Marian High School. Nicely situated in the quiet Forest Grove residential neighborhood, this location is close to local amenities and downtown Worcester. 


The development will create about 136 senior living apartment residences in an all-new-construction 150,000 square foot, 3-story building that might make you think of the region’s historic three-decker residences. The apartments will offer wonderful views over the valley toward Indian Lake, or overlooking serene, tree-lined green spaces.


Since 1874, Goddard-Homestead, a non-profit senior living provider, has become legendary in Worcester for serving the community so honestly and exceedingly well. This tradition is a high standard to live up to, but with the plan for this new senior living community, we’re all in.

We believe that being safe, healthy, well fed and surrounded by friends is the path to Worcester-style serenity.


Timeline (get ready!)

Looking toward a late 2024 opening for residency, construction is expected to begin in spring 2023, and will probably require about 20 months. Early reservation opportunities for future residents will begin in early 2023.
