About This Agency:

AbbottCare is Abbott Home Health Care, a CHAP accredited, Medicare certified visiting nurse agency, and Abbott Senior Care, a private, supportive care agency that provides services to assist clients to live safely at home.  We are also sub contractors to Bristol Elders, HESSCO, Old Colony Elder Services, the Mass Rehab Commission, MFP, MassHealth, and the VA home care programs, providing home health aides, homemakers, and companions.  We are based in Avon, Massachusetts and service the communities throughout Southeastern Mass.

 As a FULL SERVICE home healthcare agency, AbbottCare provides BOTH skilled and therapeutic care, and private care services. From companion care, to personal care attendant or home health aides, and with the coordination and supervision of our skilled care staff, we are able to improve the continuity and coordination of care, with improved outcomes and better communication for the patient, family, primary care provider and caregivers.  Our registered nurses serve as our case managers getting to know the patient and family, allowing for one point of contact for the patient and the primary care physician, and fewer strangers in patient's homes.
