The BaneCare Story

Today, more than 50 years after its start, BaneCare continues its family tradition—caring for others as we would want to be cared for ourselves.

Even before he owned a nursing home, George Bane knew what it took to care for loved ones. George had been running his own business selling housewares and clothing, when in 1959 he sold his business to buy the Avalon Nursing Home in Lynn, MA. Soon thereafter, he built Abbott House, and these two facilities quickly became that community’s trusted establishment for skilled nursing care and the foundation on which BaneCare is built.

Now more than a generation later, under the direction of George’s son, Richard, the company has grown into one of Massachusetts’ premier long-term care organizations. Richard has expanded BaneCare beyond its original North Shore roots and today Bane Care provides services across Massachusetts. Yet, despite its growth, BaneCare proudly continues to maintain a strong sense of family, community, and individuality.

Today, the company currently includes a third generation of the Bane family and now operates and manages fourteen skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, three adult day centers, and two assisted living facilities spanning the North Shore, South Shore, Berkshires and Greater Boston area.

Our original motto, “A Matter of Trust,” is still at the heart of Bane Care’s mission today. The company strives to combine the best of the past, present and future —old fashioned, family values joined with complex medical care capability and advancing technology. BaneCare’s nursing centers are a “bridge” between the hospital, home and community whether an individual needs a short stay before returning home or requires ongoing longer term care when challenges are too great at home.

With the evolution of the Accountable Care Organization (ACO), BaneCare has become a highly valued partner of many leading health systems across Massachusetts and are considered the preferred provider for many emerging ACOs, including Partners Health Care, Steward Health Care and Lahey Health, and Richard is considered to be one of the professions most esteemed leaders.

As the company continues to grow and emerge, BaneCare’s staff maintain a strong commitment to the highest level of care across all facilities, which is reflected in BaneCare’s national rankings*, certifications and awards.  
From 1959 to today, it is a good, old fashioned story, but with a contemporary twist.
