The mission of the Hellenic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is to provide resident-focused, comprehensive health care services to individuals requiring restorative, long term and skilled nursing care within a safe, secure and caring environment. We aim to maximize the capabilities in physical, social and psychological functions of each resident entrusted in our care.
Hellenic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is set on thirteen beautifully landscaped acres and primarily serves the communities of Greater Boston and Southeastern Massachusetts with an emphasis on the ethnic, spiritual and cultural needs of the community. The facility includes private and semi-private rooms, airy sitting rooms and open solariums. A spacious outdoor patio is located in our secured backyard setting, surrounded by gardens and walking paths. Our three-story facility offers a 154-bed long term skilled nursing and memory care community, as well as rehabilitation services.
In our Skilled Nursing Community, each resident is assigned a primary Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) who, through daily contact, develops an understanding of residents’ backgrounds, medical histories, personalities and other factors that influence care. Residents receive daily medical services to maintain good health and discover any concerns early. Nurse practitioners are also an integral part of our Care Team and regular visits by them provide extra expertise to care planning.
Ideal for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments, The Hellenic’s Dementia Care Unit offers a safe and therapeutic environment which facilitates the independence, comfort and security of every resident. Our Dementia Care Team brings a special blend of expertise and compassion to assist residents and their families dealing with the latter stages of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia disorders. Care plans are developed for each resident to enhance functioning, accommodate personal preferences, and reduce symptoms. The unit is staffed with 24-hour nursing support, seven days a week where a variety of services and activities are available to promote a full and meaningful life.
Our Rehabilitation unit is staffed by a team of medical professionals who provide short-term specialized rehabilitative care to help patients attain their highest level of functioning for a smooth transition home or to the most appropriate community setting. We provide physical, speech and occupational therapy and offer a team approach to meet individual needs. Our staff is well-trained to treat the specials problems of the geriatric resident, such as orthopedic rehabilitation, stroke and other medical conditions. Our commitment is to provide quality care and services so that our residents and patients can maintain the maximum quality of life.
The Hellenic offers short-term stays to patients who are being discharged from a hospital following surgery, heart attack, stroke, fracture or other conditions, may further recuperate at The Hellenic where they benefit from our support, services and amenities. We also help to coordinate outside services, such as physical and occupational therapy and lab work. These short stays also provide relief to primary caregivers in need of a “respite”. Short-stay residents stay in a furnished room and need only bring their clothing, medications and personal items
The Hellenic Leadership Team is comprised of experienced health care industry professionals. This Team and their staff, including in-house and contract personnel, provide a full range of services to meet the needs of our residents and patients.
The Hellenic was founded by a group of Greek Orthodox women who recognized the growing plight of elderly individuals left alone and unable to care for themselves within the community. These women formally organized a non-profit organization called the Hellenic Women’s Benevolent Association (HWBA), marking the beginning of the Hellenic Nursing Home for the Aged. In 1970, the HWBA purchased the Sherman Street location in Canton and constructed a 120-bed facility which opened in 1973. The facility was expanded to a 154-bed capacity in 1986 and the HWBA enhanced the mission of the home to a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center. At this time, the facility’s name was changed to Hellenic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. It was in 1996 that a secured unit was created.
The facility operates as a non-profit under the direction of the HWBA and, as a not-for-profit organization, The Hellenic is focused on the quality of care and service provided to residents and patients, versus the daily pressures to increase “the bottom line” by owners or investors. All resources are re-invested into the community and used to increase quality staffing, improve facilities, enhance services and activities.
Knowing that the success of any nursing facility is measured by the care provided, the Hellenic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is proud of its long tradition of excellence in care and restoring individuals’ health.
