DANVERS, Mass.—On Tuesday, November 10, Care Dimensions honored individuals from throughout the North Shore at their We Honor Veterans Awards breakfast and presentation held at the Danversport Yacht Club. Over 100 people turned out to congratulate award recipients Kristine Babcock of Danvers and Jacob Burridge of Ipswich, along with honorable mention recipients John Crowley of Marblehead, Rose Mazzuchelli of Winthrop and Myron Stone of Swampscott. These individuals were nominated by members of the community for their commitment to improving the lives of veterans. As a Level Four Partner of the We Honor Veterans program, Care Dimensions has joined together with the U.S. Department of the Veterans’ Affairs and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization to empower hospice professionals to meet the unique needs of dying Veterans. The program teaches respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement – to comfort patients with a history of military service and possibly physical or psychological trauma.
