This Associated Home Care branch location proudly serves Marblehead, MA, and the surrounding areas in Essex County. In 2008, Associated Home Care acquired Coastal Care, a small private pay home care agency founded in Marblehead in 1998. Through this acquisition, Associated Home Care has been able to further build upon its established reputation for reliable and affordable home care and offer the same high quality care to clients throughout the North Shore. As part of the Associated Home Care family, our clients will continue to receive the same excellent care and service that they have known through Coastal Care.
