About Hahn Home Health Care Inc.
Hahn Home Health Care Inc. was founded in Southeastern Massachusetts in 2010 by Cheryl Talcof and Lawrence Fleischman as the result of a personal family situation — the need to care for Cheryl and Larry’s uncle, Irving Hahn, in his own Westchester New York home.
The plight was similar to others across the country: an elderly relative with working adult relatives, a gentleman with a zest for life and a disabling mental and physical condition; a senior with an undeniable need for help with the activities of everyday living yet with a determined desire to stay in his own home, with loved ones to whom the idea of a nursing home was “out of the question.”
What’s a family to do?
Cheryl ultimately helped arrange for services through agencies in New York. But their search to find competent, caring, affordable assistance had turned up very little. In fact, there was a relative void in Westchester County of the quality of home care services they sought. They soon found that precisely the same situation existed back home in southeastern Massachusetts.
Clearly, a resource was needed. With a track record in the health industry, Cheryl and Larry resolved to create a solution to the problem for hundreds of families here in Massachusetts. The result: they established Hahn Home Health Care Inc. in Abington, in honor of Irving Hahn, to provide specialized home care services for clients of all ages.
We bring peace-of-mind to home health care.

Cheryl Talcof has been in the nursing field since 1979. A Registered Nurse, she has worked in all phases of nursing care including trauma, kidney transplantation, IV therapy, surgery, maternal/child health, and home care in various hospitals throughout Massachusetts, including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, South Shore Hospital, Tufts New England Medical Center, and Signature Health Care, and in patients’ homes through various agencies.

“As a nurse, I’ve seen first-hand that there’s a critical need for better care for clients being discharged earlier and also for elders who want to stay in their current homes. That’s what we decided to do,” Cheryl says.
Driven by a passion to help others, Cheryl and the Hahn Home Health team aim to provide clients of all ages with a broad range of in-home services, including high-tech skilled care, personal care, rehabilitation, therapies, homemaking, and companionship. Cheryl comments, “There is nothing like the confidence and hope our clients feel from knowing they are not alone and help is only a phone call away – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” Cheryl has a commitment to excellence; her expectation of staff is that “you should always go that extra mile to ensure you have made a positive impact on your patient.”
