“There’s no place like home.” It’s not just a saying, it’s a fact when it comes to your health. You’re likely to do better recovering from an illness or injury in your home than in a hospital. Likewise, people at the end of life are more comfortable at home, surrounded by familiar faces and surroundings.

At Cooley Dickinson VNA & Hospice, we’re here to help you manage whatever challenges you face. For those facing short-term illness or injury, that can mean the specialized assistance of a nurse or physical therapist. For those facing terminal illnesses, that can mean the emotional, physical and spiritual support of everyone from medical experts to therapeutic musicians.

A trained team, ready to come to you

We’re fortunate to have 135 employees on our hard-working team who are all focused on home-based care. These compassionate, talented professionals made 55,000 visits to patients in the last year, providing care for those needing assistance seven days a week throughout Hampshire County and parts of Franklin County.

Our team’s experts include:

  • Nurses
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapists
  • Social workers
  • Home health aides
  • Grief and Spiritual counselors
  • Volunteers

A history of support

A non-profit, community health organization, the Cooley Dickinson VNA & Hospice has provided high-quality care for the area’s residents since 1906. Since 1967, the VNA has evolved and expanded its commitment to home-based care, beginning as the Northampton Visiting Nurse Association and eventually growing to include:

  • VNA Plus of Western Massachusetts
  • Hampshire County Home Care Services
  • Easthampton VNA
  • Hampshire County VNA
  • Hospice of Hampshire County
  • VNA/Hospice Alliance

Our name has changed a few times, but what remains unchanged is our commitment to providing compassionate care in your home.
