Arranging for Services

The Home Care Division of South Shore Hospital accepts patients from a variety of referral sources, including individuals, families, friends, physicians, discharge planners from skilled care/assisted/independent living facilities, and community agencies.  Although we are able to provide a home evaluation without a physician’s order, we must receive an order from your physician before we can begin providing services in your home.

If you are interested in a referral for home care services, please call our 24-hour referral line at 866-674-2480.  For more information about our services, please contact South Shore VNA at 781-624-7070, Hospice of the South Shore at 781-624-7080, and Home & Health Resources at 781-624-7090.
