Care Dimensions Hospice House

Combining the Comfort of Home with the Benefits of Hospital-Level Medical Care

Located minutes away from Routes I-95 and 128 on 12 wooded acres in Lincoln on the Waltham town line (directions), the award-winning Care Dimensions Hospice House is a warm, homelike setting where patients receive hospital-level medical care, comfort and support.

Private suites overlook the Cambridge Reservoir and landscaped gardens, and comfortable common areas include  welcoming kitchen and dining areas, family rooms, children’s play areas, and a chapel. Friends and family are welcome any time.

  • A warm, welcoming atmosphere with kitchens and dining spaces, living rooms, chapel and contemplation garden, children's playrooms with toys and games, meeting rooms and counseling areas
