Combining the Comfort of Home with the Benefits of Hospital-Level Medical Care
Sometimes situations arise that make it difficult for adults and children receiving hospice care to be cared for at home. The award-winning Care Dimensions Hospice House offers an alternative to hospitalization for patients who require specialized care for acute pain and symptom management.
Located minutes away from Routes I-95 and 128 on 12 wooded acres in Lincoln on the Waltham town line (directions), the 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.

125 Winter Street, Lincoln, MA 01773
• Rte 95/128, take Exit 27 B
• Follow signs to merge onto Winter Street
• Continue for approximately 1.5 miles
• Watch for the entrance for Bay Colony office park (1000 Winter Street)
• Take the NEXT driveway on the left for 125 Winter Street. The hospice house will be visible on the hill above the driveway.
Some GPS systems have pinned the location for 125 Winter Street about 300 feet beyond our driveway, past where Winter Street becomes one way into Lincoln. You will not be able to turn around and will need to continue through the neighborhood until you reach Trapello Road, where you will need to take a right and then get back on Rte. 95/128 South for one exit to 27 B so you can come around again.
We have reported the issue to all the GPS software providers but it will take time to correct and for people to download new maps.
