Rogerson House/Home For Aged Men Open In Jamaica Plain

Rogerson House, 2008.

The Rogerson House is another in the long list of institutions that came to Jamaica Plain after beginnings in Boston proper or the South End. It is still open at its location on the Jamaicaway, but now cares for people with Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.

Home for Aged Men in Planned on Local Site

Jamaicaway Building to be Called Rogerson House

Boston Mass, January 22 -- Plans for the opening of a modern 40 room home for aged men at 434 Jamaicaway were announced by the board of directors of the Home For Aged Men, following the 96the annual meeting of the organization.

The new building, to be called the Rogerson House, will replace present facilities at 133 West Springfield st., where the home for aged men has been located for nearly a century. It will be opened in the Spring of 1957.

    Thanks for shedding the spotlight on Rogerson House, Mark! The building is a fantastic architectural example in a historic neighborhood. I work for Rogerson Communities and we're very proud of the care the amazing Rogerson House staff takes of its elder residents.

  2. It's good to know that the Rogerson is still serving people in need, and isn't just another condo development.

  3. Hi,

    Thanks for the above.
