Hospice Care

Maristhill has a long tradition of caring for those who need specialized care at a difficult time in their lives. Through our partnership with Hospice of the Good Shepherd, the first non-profit hospice organization in Massachusetts, we provide an environment of support, comfort, and peace to patients and their families. We also welcome other hospice organizations who may be caring for folks at home who need to transition to full-time care. Hospice care is sometimes a short-stay respite to give family caregivers a chance to rest and care for themselves, and sometimes a transition based on care needs which have become too great to be supported in the home setting. In either case, Maristhill strives to provide a warm environment, in which families and friends continue to feel involved and welcomed.

The Extra Mile

As indicated by our five-star rating, you can depend on us to go the extra mile towards offering the finest in medical care and making your stay at Maristhill safe, comfortable and fulfilling.
