Letter to the Editor: Thank you Lynn volunteers

In honor of National Volunteer Week, which is celebrated in April, we would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank and celebrate the over 560 volunteers whose steadfast dedication and commitment enable Care Dimensions, the state’s largest provider of hospice services, to fulfill its mission: to enrich the quality of life for terminally ill patients and their families. Our volunteers’ selfless acts of kindness and compassion, both large and small, allow our patients the comfort, companionship and dignity that make all the difference at a critical turning point in their lives.

Our volunteers provided over 45,000 hours of service last year. Whether at the bedside of a patient in a long-term care facility, in a family home, in the Care Dimensions’ offices or in one of our two inpatient hospice facilities (the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln or the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers), volunteers are an integral part of our success.

We at Care Dimensions would like to recognize Debra Balzarini, Patricia Cecilio, Carolyn Collins, Vicki Dakin, Nancy Aurora, Joan Dubis, Nancy Geaney, Karen Johnson, Lori Maffeo, Jodi Mugnano, Ginger Murphy, Joanne Varriano and Dorothy Wright-Irwin of Lynn for their contributions and dedication to our agency.

For those who are interested in learning more about volunteering with Care Dimensions, please call us at 888-283-1722 or visit CareDimensions.org.

On behalf of our staff and Board of Directors, we offer our sincere thanks for all that our volunteers do each and every day for Care Dimensions.
