Care Dimensions (Massachusetts) – Why Work For Us?

Experts in Compassionate Care

Experts in Compassionate Care

When facing an advanced or end-of-life illness, you can turn to the experts at Care Dimensions for skilled and compassionate care. For 40 years, Care Dimensions has been a driving force in expanding access to hospice and palliative care in Massachusetts. In 2015, we received the prestigious Circle of Life Award from the American Hospital Association and other healthcare organizations for being a national leader in palliative and end-of-life care. Today, Care Dimensions is the largest hospice in Massachusetts and we offer a continuum of clinical care for adult and pediatric patients with advanced and life-limiting illnesses and provide support for their families and caregivers.

Care Dimensions serves people of all ages, races, faiths, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic backgrounds 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.

Patient-Centered Care

By considering every facet of a patient’s life, members of the Care Dimensions clinical team bring a holistic perspective to the care they give. Each patient is viewed as a whole person with physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs. Patients and their loved ones find comfort and relief in Care Dimensions' integrative and individualized approach. 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 and veterans.

We Are There Wherever You Need Us

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 in Danvers, which opened in 2005 as the first licensed inpatient hospice facility in Massachusetts, or our 18-bed Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, which opened in 2018.

Palliative Care for Advanced Illness

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.

Reaching Out to the Community with Education

The staff at Care Dimensions provides outstanding training and accredited continuing education opportunities to healthcare professionals. We also offer workshops and classes to members of the community who seek to better understand issues surrounding advanced illnesses and end-of-life decisions.

Helping Families Cope with Loss

Care Dimensions is widely recognized for its bereavement program – considered to be the most comprehensive in New England. We help honor the memory of those lost by providing grief support to 5,000 adults and children each year. We offer counseling services, workshops, support groups, bereavement camp, and crisis intervention at schools, businesses and community organizations.

Your Support Enriches Our Care

 Your Support Enriches Our Care 

Because of the generosity of our countless supporters—donors, event participants, volunteers, community organizations, corporate sponsors—Care Dimensions is able to subsidize the many underfunded aspects of our comprehensive care, such as our specialized clinical care, palliative care, complementary therapies, volunteer services, staff and community education, grief support services and uncompensated care for patients unable to pay.
