Attleboro - Hillside Family Supports/Adult Family Care

Our goal is to provide a safe, caring environment for adults whose ability to function independently has been compromised by medical, physical, emotional or cognitive health concerns. 

We have had over 25 years of experience in providing participants a place to relax and meet new people, explore new activities and rekindle old interests while having access to health and social services, therapeutic activities, transportation and meals.

“We couldn’t hope for anything better. We are very grateful for all the support we receive constantly.” -Family member
