Joe MacDonald's health rebounded on hospice care. He especially enjoyed the companionship of his Veteran-to-Veteran volunteer Tom Pendergast.
Care Dimensions Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program Gives Back
Therapy Dog Brings Joy to Patients
Volunteer Cynthia Turover and her pet therapy dog Louie make the day a little brighter when for patients.
Patient Treasures His Volunteer Visits
Frank Medeiros, a 30-year volunteer, brought companionship to a patient by driving him through Nahant or to a Rockport candy store for saltwater taffy.
Music at the Bedside
We now have a volunteer-trained group of singers who can sing at the bedside of a patient. These singers visit patients in teams of two or three and provide comfort by singing to patients at end of life.
The next training sessions start in September and will meet twice weekly at each location (Danvers, Burlington, and Lincoln).
Danvers: Mondays and Wednesdays, 9 - 11:30 a.m., September 10 - October 3, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House
Burlington: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6 - 8:30 p.m., September 11 - October 4, at Microsoft Corporation
Lincoln: Wednesdays and Fridays, 1 - 3:30 p.m., September 26 - October 26, at the Care Dimensions Hospice House
