Delivering state-of-the-art care with heart and soul. This is the mission of the Diocesan Health Facilities. Founded in 1939 by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fall River, our non-profit mission-based organization is dedicated to helping adults of all ages maintain the highest quality of life possible by addressing their physical and emotional needs, while fostering spiritual well-being.
Our holistic approach embraces the signature beliefs that life is precious, that each individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and that the professional care we provide be defined by its compassion and attention to a higher purpose.
The Diocesan Health Facilities group serves Bristol County in Southeastern Massachusetts with a full spectrum of health care services. Our five skilled nursing centers comprise Catholic Memorial Home in Fall River, Madonna Manor in North Attleboro, Marian Manor in Taunton, Our Lady’s Haven in Fairhaven, and Sacred Heart Home in New Bedford. Additionally, we offer two innovative community-based programs that support independent living – Bethany House, providing adult day health care in Taunton, and EldersFirst, a geriatric health care consulting service designed to assist elders living at home.
We've got a new video which is an overview of our EldersFirst program. Serving all of Bristol County and surrounding areas, our unique program is designed to help seniors living at home maintain their independence while giving their loved ones peace of mind. Click above to watch!
