Description of resource:
Care Dimensions, founded in 1978 as Hospice of the North Shore, is the largest hospice in Massachusetts. As a non-profit leader in advanced illness management, we care for patients in more than 90 communities in Eastern Massachusetts. Care Dimensions serves people of all ages, faiths, ethnic backgrounds, sexuality, gender identity and socio-economic standing and is committed to helping more individuals and families access care and receive support during one of the most challenging times in their lives. No one is denied care because of financial status, level of insurance coverage or ability to pay. We provide care for patients wherever they call “home“ private residences, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, hospitals, group homes and veteran’s facilities. Patients who need acute symptom management can be admitted to our 20-bed Kaplan Family Hospice House, which opened in 2005 as the first licensed inpatient hospice facility in Massachusetts.
We offer specialized clinical programs for patients with advanced dementia, cardiac and respiratory diseases. In addition, we provide pediatric hospice and palliative care, and programs tailored to the needs of adults with developmental disabilities, veterans and members of the Jewish faith. For patients who aren’t ready for hospice, our palliative care program adds a layer of support for patients with serious illness by providing relief from pain and other symptoms; assisting families in making difficult medical decisions; coordinating care with the patient’s physicians; and providing emotional and spiritual support. Our bereavement program, arguably the most comprehensive in the New England, provides grief support to 5,000 adults and children per year via counseling, workshops, support groups and crisis intervention at schools, businesses and community organizations.
