First looks at Natick’s new recreational cannabis dispensary & luxury EV maker Lucid
Wellesley-ites may have missed news of the recent opening of luxury electric vehicle maker Lucid Motors at Natick Mall and this week’s debut of Natick’s first recreational cannabis dispensary—dubbed Redi—at Cloverleaf Mall. But believe me, the operators of these establishments are well aware of their neighbors in Wellesley—in fact, the CEO of Redi is a Wellesley resident.
I took a tour of both new businesses and you can come along for the ride on our Natick Report:

Mature Caregivers elder care—there when you need them
SPONSORED CONTENT: Mature Caregivers provides geriatric expertise and reliable in-home eldercare from certified providers age 50+. Thoroughly screened and trained care givers can handle your loved one’s in-home care needs such as basic personal care, medication assistance, companionship, transportation, or help with dementia.
When Wellesley resident Paul Brady’s 96-year old mother started experiencing memory loss, it was clear she needed a helping hand with meals, laundry and other tasks. “She was living on her own in the house my father bought in 1956, ” he said.
At first Paul’s mother was very resistant to the idea of caregivers coming into the home. But once she met with a care concierge, she agreed to try out the service. Gayle Thieme, director of client care, “sat down with my mother and she helped make it easy for her to at least try it,” Paul said.
Paul’s mother passed three months later, peacefully and at home, in accordance with her wishes.
“She loved having the caregivers,” Paul said. “There was always good stability, and Mature Caregivers has a very organized system. Gayle and her team are extremely accommodating. Once the needs are identified, they really bend over backward to make sure your loved one is cared for.”
When Anne Brady, Paul’s wife, needed help for her mom, Anne knew that she would also go with Mature Caregivers. “My mom had a fall, and Gayle got us care that night. We did a couple of weeks of overnight care, which she really needed.”
