Caring for the Central Massachusetts Community
Plenty to do, plenty to see — all here in Central Massachusetts! From historic villages to shows at the Hanover Theatre, Central Mass has it all! Many consider our own Worcester to be the cultural capital of the region! To us, the most important thing in our beautiful hilly woodlands are the residents who live here. Here at Accessible Home Health Care, we believe that sometimes, it takes a village to care for any individual. This is especially true for seniors who may be in need of additional care. We believe in lending a helping hand to the communities we serve, so they, in turn, can assist their residents, whether or not they are recipients of our in-home health care services.
