The town of Milford is located in Worcester counties. Milford was settled in 1662 and was originally the "Mill River" section of the town of Mendon. Milford was incorporated in 1780. In 1870 Milford was known for its pink granite, used for buildings throughout the US and Europe.
Today, Milford is home to the Milford Regional Medical Center. With a branch of the Dana Farber Cancer Center and an affiliation with University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Milford Regional provides both direct patient care and medical education.
Milford's access, just off of interstate 495, has made it an easy site for numerous large "box" stores which are utilized by the smaller surrounding towns of Milford.
The 2000 census noted the population of Milford at 26,799. The 2010 projected Milford population is 23,790. 12.9% of the total Milford population, according to the 2000 census, was 65 years of age or older. 9.5% of all individual Milford households had a Milford senior 65 or older living alone. As a shift in this senior population increases, so will the need for in-home senior home care services provided by a reputable senior home care agency like Home Instead Senior Care. Home Instead has provided the highest quality, in-home care for your loved one since 1997. Elder home care services are tailored to fit you and your family's elder care needs.
