Exceptional clinical care, compassion, and innovative programs have earned us the designation “Center for Excellence in Long-term Care” from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Established in 1881, The Boston Home touches the lives of thousands of people as we serve our residents, outpatients, and their families, and share our knowledge with healthcare professionals nationwide through The Boston Home Institute.

Help us to ensure that our residents can enjoy lives rich with options, personal independence, comfort and creative outlets. Your support is vital.
