Proud partners in serving LGBT elders
HopeHealth is honored to have been awarded the highest level certification for specialized training of staff on cultural issues and sensitivities around sexual orientation and gender identification. More than 80% of our staff completed SAGECare training, developed by SAGE, the country’s oldest and largest LGBT advocacy and services organization.
Caring Every Step of the Way
HopeHealth is a non-profit organization serving thousands of people each year in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Our caregivers support patients and their families through all stages of illness, providing hospice care, palliative care, home care, and dementia and Alzheimer’s support services and grief support.
It's helpful to think of our stages of care along a continuum:
Patients heal in the comfort of their own home with the help of our home care care professionals. The goal of home care is to heal and regain independence after an injury, or while recovering from an illness or medical procedure.
Our palliative care services focus on lessening the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The objective is to help individuals live as long and as well as possible. Palliative care providers are pillars of support to help families understand care options and other complexities that may arise during stressful times.
Hospice care ensures that a patient and their loved ones receive compassionate care. Comfort care is appropriate when a serious illness advances and the effort shifts from curing and recovery to comfort and support for the patient and family. Our hospice care team can provide spiritual, emotional and physical care in home, nursing home, assisted living and inpatient settings.
Grief is complex and very personal. HopeHealth is proud to offer more grief support groups in Rhode Island and Massachusetts than any other organization. Our groups are led by specially-trained faciliatators and are free and open to the community. We also offer a variety of other grief support services focused on specific needs of caregivers and types of loss.
Superior Quality and Expertise
Certified in Community-Based Palliative Care
We are the only home care agency in Rhode Island to be certified by The Joint Commission in community-based palliative care. We are certified by Medicare and Medicaid.
Increasing access to care is critical to our mission, and we can’t do it alone.

Together, we can do so much more to help people living with a serious illness.
