150 years serving Worcester County and Central Massachusetts
In 1874, prominent Worcester citizens realized the importance of a home that would provide care and security for those unable to live alone. They founded the Goddard House, which succeeded as a home for elderly men until 1989, when it was modernized, renovated and expanded to offer 36 rental units for independent older adults.
Homestead Hall began as a home for women in the early 1900s and was incorporated in 1910. In 1983, Goddard House joined with nearby Homestead Hall under one management to offer a continuum of care.
And now, the next chapter: With an anticipated 2024 opening, The Perennial rounds out the continuum of care and offers brand-new Independent Living apartments and Memory Care.
"I was in rehab trying to find a place to live that offered independence with some oversight. A friend had stayed at the Goddard House and loved it. So, my family and I came for a tour. It was so impressive! It’s beautiful and has a touch of home that invites you in. I felt safe, and my family felt safe for me. Coming here was the best thing I could have done. Goddard House is my home."
