Who We Are

More comprehensive care than a traditional assisted living residence.

Often times, assisted living residences will require residents to pay more for supplemental services or move out when care needs become too great or expensive. At DCN, you will have peace of mind of knowing that you or your loved one will receive needed care—including periodic nursing services—while avoiding the inconvenience, cost, and disruption of an unnecessary move to a nursing home. We offer:

  • Long-term residence for seniors with exceptional personalized care and all the comforts of home
  • Short-term respite care for seniors in a compassionate,
    homey atmosphere

Our intimate community allows for close staff-to-resident relationships, creating a warm and supportive family-like environment. Experiences are more personalized because our attentive caregivers get to know each resident. Everything from meals to daily activities are tailored to an individual’s interests, needs, desires, and preferences.

Our History

Our roots go back to 1923

Our roots go back to 1923 with the Newcomb Home for Old Ladies of Norton, created to fulfill the terms of Harriot A. Newcomb’s will. She left the old homestead specifically for use as a home for elderly women, together with other property and assets to support the Home. The name was later changed to the Newcomb Home.

Our History

Our roots go back to 1923

Similarly, Frances A. Crandall left a bequest to be held in trust as an endowment fund for the establishment and maintenance of a home for elderly ladies in Attleboro. The fund was to be allowed to accumulate until, through interest and other gifts, an amount of $50,000 was available, at which time a suitable home was to be purchased. Late in 1926 this goal was achieved and on November 23, 1926, a corporation was formed under the name of the John Daggett Home for Aged Women. They purchased the Sheffield property on North Main Street in Attleboro on January 26, 1927, from Amelia Daggett Sheffield (daughter of John Daggett). The name was later changed to the John Daggett-Frances A. Crandall Home for Aged Women.

Our History

Our roots go back to 1923

Over the years, each of these homes was the recipients of various gifts and bequests, and operations were supported mostly from investment income and money paid into the homes’ treasuries by residents who entered the homes under life care contracts.
Because both of the homes were of old wooden construction, it became increasingly difficult to meet state safety requirements. In 1966 the two homes decided to pool assets and form a new single corporation: the Daggett-Crandall-Newcomb Home, Inc. A new home was built in Norton on Newcomb land and in January of 1968 the new home was occupied and the old properties vacated. At a later time, the old Newcomb homestead was razed and the Attleboro property was sold. The property is on five acres of woodland and fields and is a Natural Wildlife Habitat.
