“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 more than 100 employees on our hard-working team who are all focused on home-based care.

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