1st Hospice in Massachusetts

Good Shepherd Community Care is one of the most trusted health care organizations in Greater Boston
focusing on hospice and palliative care. Founded as Hospice of the Good Shepherd in 1978,
we are the original Massachusetts hospice. After decades of caring for our community,
we continue to remain community-based, not-for-profit and non-sectarian.

From the beginning, Good Shepherd has cared for patients with COVID disease and their loved ones providing comfort and relieving, as best we can, the loneliness of dying during a period of isolation. 

Please watch our short tribute video.
