The Village Clinic is an example of the excellence and innovation you find throughout our community.

CW615164-clinic (3)The Clinic at Carleton-Willard was the first licensed facility of its kind in Massachusetts, and is still the most comprehensive. Our staffing is impressive, with a full-time geriatric nurse practitioner and clinical staff. Our medical director is board-certified in geriatric medicine. On-site appointments are available in a wide range of specialties, including ophthalmology, podiatry, psychiatry, audiology, chiropractic, and physical, speech, and occupational rehabilitation therapies. The Clinic provides routine care, as well as urgent outpatient care, with an emphasis on health maintenance and illness prevention that is individualized to your needs.

Equally important (and impressive!) is the ongoing relationship we forge with each of our residents. We encourage you to come to the Clinic whenever you have a health question or concern. Maybe you are wondering if that stiffness in your knee can go away without surgery, or are just looking for the latest information on how to prevent the flu. And if you need it, we are just minutes away from some of the best community hospitals and academic medical centers in the country (and the world, for that matter).

What do we offer to keep you healthy and active? Here are just some of the services we do provide:

  • Free lectures and discussions led by community health experts; recent talks focused on the latest research on macular degeneration, shingles, reducing stress through the power of the mind, preparing for surgery, healing faster, healthy eating for a healthier brain, men’s health, osteoporosis, and more
  • Complementary therapies including massage and acupuncture
  • Monthly To Your Health newsletter with a calendar of health lectures and articles on health and fitness
  • On-site outpatient rehabilitation services

And, of course, our stunning fitness and aquatics center.

The Carleton-Willard clinic is very special – the best I’ve seen in the Boston area. The staff are quite exceptional – well-informed, comfortable with older people. And you can tell they really care about you.
