Care Dimensions Celebrates Its Hospice and Palliative Care Nurses

Care Dimensions, the largest provider of hospice and palliative care services in Massachusetts, celebrates National Nurses Week, May 6 -12 by honoring its 301 nurses, most of whom are board certified in hospice and palliative care. 

“Every day, the skill and compassion of our hospice and palliative care nurses makes the difference for our patients and their families,” said Care Dimensions’ President and CEO Patricia Ahern, a 43-year nursing veteran. “During this response to COVID-19, our nurses have gone above and beyond to continue to provide care to patients in their homes, skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals. They have been on the front lines in the community, providing critical care and helping patients and families feel less alone and isolated. I’m immensely proud of their dedication and compassion.”

Since its founding in 1978, Care Dimensions’ nurses have helped to make the time of advanced illness dignified and meaningful for patients and their families. Care Dimensions is growing and is actively recruiting new members to our team of caring, compassionate nurses. Visit to learn more.
