Elizabeth Evarts de Rham Hospice Home

65 Chilton Street, Cambridge MA | (617) 661- 4944

 
The Elizabeth Evarts de Rham hospice home, located on a quiet street in Cambridge’s Huron Village neighborhood, was the first hospice residence to open in Massachusetts. On the outside, the seemingly typical two-family home is free from signage and welcomes visitors like any other home in the diverse, eclectic Cambridge neighborhood. However inside the home, our staff and volunteers foster a warm, supportive, patient-centered environment. Nurses are on-site around the clock to provide comprehensive hospice care.
 
Since opening the doors on a cool, clear December morning in 1991, staff at the Elizabeth Evarts de Rham Hospice Residence have cared for more than 3,000 patients and provided support to their loved ones. The house has played host to many of life's most important moments. The staff has facilitated birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, christenings, holidays, and veteran recognition celebrations
 
Our de Rham home features an elevator, two living rooms, and a common dining room. A private wooden deck overlooking our lush green garden provides a tranquil space for loved ones to gather. Our bird feeder welcomes sparrows, blue jays, cardinals and more.
 

Each of the five private bedrooms is fully furnished, complete with its own bathroom. Amenities include an electric hospital bed, cable television, WIFI internet, telephone and a closet storage system. The progressive home is the first LEED certified hospice residence in New England.
