Timing is Everything

Care Dimensions has produced its very first cable TV show titled Timing is Everything to educate the public on living with an advanced illness and the benefits of hospice and palliative care. The show, which first aired in September 2015 on Danvers Cable Access TV (DCAT), is a part of Care Dimensions’ community education and outreach program which works to dispel the myths surrounding hospice care and to empower individuals dealing with an advanced illness to access these services sooner so there is more opportunity to improve their quality of life.

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 more than 90 communities in Eastern Massachusetts.
