25th Anniversary of the Rose Monahan Hospice Home

The Rose Monahan Hospice Home opened as the first hospice residence in Central Massachusetts on Sept. 9, 1997, thanks to the philanthropic support of many individuals, businesses, foundations, and organizations. We are grateful for the community’s ongoing support that has enabled us to care for thousands of patients and their loved ones throughout the end-of-life journey and after their loss. Learn more about the Monahan Home's history in this video featuring photos from the past 25 years. The Telegram & Gazette featured our "one-of-a-kind" hospice and one family's deep connection to the residence. Read the article on
