Your Hospice Care Partner
Hospice care is one of the most personal experiences of an individual’s life. Focused on meeting the physical, spiritual, and psychosocial needs of patients with advanced disease, hospice care often involves family and friends who are committed to ensuring that their loved one can live where they are most comfortable and enjoy the highest quality of life possible for their entire life.
For over 35 years, Old Colony Hospice’s team of registered nurses, social workers, counselors, hospice aides, nutritional consultants and volunteers has been providing caring, compassionate hospice care to patients and their loved ones in partnership with the patient’s primary care physician.
A free-standing, non-profit, Medicare certified, accredited health care organization, we are proud to serve 45 Massachusetts cities and towns in our service area. In order to serve our patients and families in whatever setting they consider home, we have contracts in over 30 skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, as well as five acute-care hospitals. We also are able to offer physical, occupational and speech therapy through relationships with other care providers.
If you or a loved one are faced with the challenges of serious illness and have questions about how we may help, please see what to do next or contact us directly to discuss your situation.
