Our Family Taking Care of Your Family for Over 32 years
Five sisters, one mission.
What sets us apart from the competition is our hands-on, family-run operation. We understand how difficult it can be to care for a loved one and the toll it takes on the client and the caregivers trying to help.

In-home healthcare services for Arlington, MA and surrounding communities
In-home healthcare covers a wide range of services and care, from companions and homemakers to personal care aides and nurses. We are a full-service, private, licensed home health care agency. All home care and services we offer in Arlington, MA and surrounding communities are provided by employees of Metropolitan Home Health Services, Inc.
Since 1988, The Arpiarian Sisters — the family behind Metropolitan Home Health Services, Inc. (MHHS) — have provided care for the elderly and disabled throughout eastern Massachusetts, earning a reputation for excellent service, honesty, and dependability.
The idea of forming a home health care agency came when the sisters (two are RN’s) were caring for their grandmother in 1985. “This type of care was just getting started back then and it was a profound experience for our whole family, but for our grandmother we needed 24 hour round the clock care”, said Yvonne Arpiarian RN, Director of MHHS.
With the idea that there were most likely many more patients and families that needed help, Metropolitan was born. Today our agency serves more than 30 communities and provides an array of services including nursing, certified home health aides, companions, homemaking and 24-hour respite care.
Treat each and every client the way we would want to be treated ourselves. We help them safely stay with dignity and independence in their own homes as long as possible, knowing that homecare is often the best care for maintaining health and happiness.

I want to thank you personally for being so kind to my husband during his illness. The Home Health Aide assigned to my husband from the first day of Hospice Care until his death was so patient, kind and caring to him and me. It was a pleasure to have her in my home.

You never think it’ll happen to you – or, worse, someone you love. That lively, happy person who filled your days with joy becomes a stranger, a shell of their former self. Someone you don’t recognize. Someone who doesn’t recognize you.
You thought you had it all planned out. You know what to do when you’re running low on adult diapers, food, or medicine. You can handle it when the power goes out or the plumbing acts up. To everyone you know, you’re strong and capable – admirable, even. You put on a smile and deal with the daily struggles in spite of everything. Your spouse depends on it.
