Care Dimensions recognizes Medford hospice aides
In June, Care Dimensions recognized all of its hospice aides, including Medford residents Odile Altidor and Vilene Occean, during the 40th Annual celebration of National Assistant Nursing Week.
“Our hospice aides are the women and men who are the most local translators of our mission,” Care Dimensions President and CEO Patricia Ahern said. “Humanity and compassion are the everyday companions of their days. They do not judge their patients; they simply find what’s at the core of human dignity and help it shine out.”
Care Dimensions is largest hospice provider to adults and children with advanced illness in Massachusetts. As a nonprofit, community-based leader in advanced illness care, Care Dimensions provides comprehensive hospice, palliative care, grief support and teaching programs in more than 90 communities in Eastern Massachusetts. Founded in 1978 as Hospice of the North Shore, Care Dimensions cares for patients – in their homes, in long-term care and assisted living communities, in hospitals and at the Kaplan Family Hospice House – throughout all stages of advanced illness.
