These nurses in the 1920s made their visits to homebound patients using the transportation of the times.

Our History

In 1911, community leaders of Attleboro were becoming concerned about public health in the face of threatening communicable diseases. They created the Attleboro Anti-Tuberculosis Society as the first healthcare service in the city, pre-dating the local community hospital, Sturdy Memorial, by two years.

This agency grew over the years and joined together with similar nursing services agencies from nearby towns. The agency we know today as Community VNA is a non-profit agency committed to community-based health care.

Each year we graduate a new class of hospice volunteers.
