Partner Providers

Throughout the South Shore, The Cordwainer has relationships established with respected local health care providers who offer services that may be helpful and of interest to families and their loved ones living with us. Our team respects the work of these memory care providers, and each is familiar with our community. Families can work directly with these providers. We will gladly coordinate a meeting with any of them or additional Norwell visiting nurse services.
