Patient-Centered Hospice
and Palliative Care

Old Colony Hospice has been providing hospice and palliative care services to patients and their families since 1979.  Our mission is to compassionately care for individuals and their loved ones coping with complex illnesses and end of life needs while preserving dignity and quality of life.   Our vision is to make the end of life care experience better for the people we serve.

Who We Are

Hospice Care

Hospice care offers patients with a life-limiting illness the comfort and support they need to maximize their quality of life. Old Colony Hospice services are performed by an interdisciplinary, compassionate team to meet the unique needs of each patient and family.

Palliative Care

Palliative care provides emotional, spiritual and physical support for patients diagnosed with chronic or terminal illnesses. Our palliative care services are designed to improve the quality of life for patients and their families by providing support to cope with complex medical conditions.

The Dr. Ruth McLain Hospice Home

This charming and quaint home welcomes and serves patients and their families in private rooms that are warm, comfortable and clinically staffed by our dedicated team of professionals 24 hours a day. In this setting, our team will continue to provide the very best end-of-life care to the patients we have the great privilege to care for.
