Stanley R. Tippett Hospice Home

920 South Street, Needham | (781) 433-5800 

Located on nearly six acres of peaceful wooded grounds abutting the Charles River sits a converted mansion, now the Stanley R. Tippett Hospice Home in Needham. The residence offers a warm, supportive environment with all the comforts of home.

Since opening in 1994, the Stanley R. Tippett Home has provided compassionate end-of-life care for our patients when it is no longer possible or optimal to remain at home. Our staff and volunteers care not only for the patients, but also support loved ones before and after their loss. The staff and volunteers have cared for thousands of patients with the central goal of honoring every patient’s medical, spiritual, emotional and physical wishes. The home welcomes residents from all ethnic, socioeconomic and spiritual backgrounds. 

There are several common living rooms and a spacious dining room where residents may spend time privately or visit with guests. The covered patio, complete with a nearby bird feeder and wooden swing, provide a comfortable outdoor space for everyone to enjoy. 


Each of the ten private bedrooms is equipped with an electric hospital bed TV with cable, WI-FI internet, telephone, dresser, closet and sink with vanity. An elevator provides easy access to all levels of the home. Nurses are on-site around the clock to provide hospice care.
