CNN’s Money Magazine recently named Sharon, Mass. the best small town in America. We are proud to call it home to one of our respected skilled nursing facilities, EPOCH Senior Healthcare of Sharon.
Money editors selected Sharon for its small-town appeal, while also being close enough to Boston and Providence to provide Sharon residents with ample job opportunities. In fact, the availability of jobs helped shield Sharon from the worst of the recession and aided a speedy recovery.
The editors also chose Sharon for its vast open spaces and beauty, highlighting Lake Massapoag, which provides residents with a wonderful place to swim, picnic and enjoy concerts. The town also boasts top-notch schools as well as diversity—30 percent of students identify themselves as nonwhite and 18 percent speak a language other than English at home. On top of that, Sharon houses seven synagogues, nine churches and one of New England’s largest Islamic mosques.
