About Us

Sherrill House is the culmination of more than one hundred years of exceptional care. Founded as the Trinity Church Home for the Aged (Rachel Allen Memorial)  in 1907, one of the first of its kind, today Sherrill House still leads the way in caring. We are proud of our tradition of caring and excellence, and we remain committed to continuously improving our staff, services, and programs to best meet the needs of those we serve. Learn more about the history of Sherrill House.

Sherrill House is a 196-bed, not-for-profit skilled nursing and rehabilitation center growing to meet the changing needs of our community. With a multi-year expansion and renovation completed in 2007, our state-of-the-art facility has even more ways to give our patients and residents the best care. Now more than ever, Sherrill House is Boston's best place to get better.

We are proud to offer three specialized care programs, including short-term rehabilitation through our acclaimed Return to Home program, traditional long-term care, and our Special Care Program for individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia.
