Care Dimensions, founded in 1978 as Hospice of the North Shore, has evolved from a small, all-volunteer agency to its present status as the largest hospice in Massachusetts, serving an average of nearly 800 hospice patients and 150 palliative care patients each day throughout 90 eastern Massachusetts communities. With 500 staff and over 400 volunteers, Care Dimensions cares for people of all ages, faiths, ethnic backgrounds and socio-economic standing and is committed to helping more individuals and families access end-of-life 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 and care is provided where ever a patient calls “home” – private residences, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, hospitals, group homes and veteran’s facilities or at the Kaplan Family Hospice House or new Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln on the Waltham line which is slated to open this spring.

Since 1978, Care Dimensions has provided comprehensive and compassionate care for individuals and families dealing with life-threatening illnesses. As the non-profit leader in advanced illness care, we offer services in over 100 communities in Massachusetts.
