Tree of Lights

Always Remembered – Always Treasured – Always Honored

Thank you to all of those who came out to attend Tree of Lights ceremonies in 2022. These events were extra special as they were our first in-person gatherings in three years. It was truly meaningful to be together to share these special moments.

Lights will be shining through the end of the year in remembrance of loved ones. The Tribute Book, with the names of those honored, is on our website at

Thank you to our generous and kind hosts – BankGloucester, M & T Bank in Danvers, Swampscott Town Hall, First Church Congregational Swampscott, and Bemis Hall in Lincoln - for partnering with Care Dimensions.

Your gift lights up the evening sky and supports Care Dimensions’ programs and services for terminally ill patients and their families in our community. 




Watch Highlights from our 2022 Ceremonies:

A recording of the Service of Remembrance can be found here. That event included prayer, readings, and songs from our talented music therapy team. It is a touching service, whether you are remembering someone who died recently, or someone who passed many years ago.
