LETTER TO THE EDITOR, EastBoston.Com
In honor of National Volunteer Week, April 10 – April 16, 2016, we would like to
take this opportunity to publicly thank and celebrate the 400 volunteers whose
steadfast dedication and commitment enable Care Dimensions, formerly Hospice of
the North Shore & Greater Boston, to fulfill its mission: to enrich the quality
of life for terminally ill patients and their families. Our volunteers’ selfless
acts of kindness and compassion, both large and small, allow our patients the
comfort, companionship and dignity that make all the difference at a critical
turning point in their lives.
Our volunteers provided over 25,000 hours of service last year. Whether at the
bedside of a patient in a long-term care facility, in a family home, in the Care
Dimensions’ offices or our Kaplan Family Hospice House, volunteers are an
integral part of our success.
We at Care Dimensions would especially like to recognize Melissa Howell of East
Boston for her contributions and dedication to our agency.
On behalf of our staff and Board of Directors, we offer our sincere thanks for
all that our volunteers do each and every day for Care Dimensions.
Diane T. Stringer
President & CEO
