Why Choose Us?
You have a choice in who provides you or your loved one with home care services. Contrary to what you may assume, all home care agencies do not offer the same level of care or provide the same services. When you choose a home health agency, you have the right to find the agency that you trust to provide you or your loved one with the highest quality, most advanced, and most compassionate care possible.

The Home Care Division of South Shore Hospital has a proven history of bringing innovative care into homes to effectively address the full range of health needs of the people we serve. These services include our cardiac, diabetes, wound/ostomy/continence, infusion therapy, geriatric, and rehabilitation specialty programs.
Whether visiting newborn babies and their parents, helping post-surgical or disabled patients recover, or caring for those with acute or chronic medical conditions, our VNA, hospice, and private pay programs offer the levels of care necessary to assure the best outcomes. The Home Care Division of South Shore Hospital provides the superior care you should expect from a home care agency. There is no need to look further.
