Overview

Mission Statement

Care Dimensions enriches quality of life for those affected by life-limiting illness, death and loss by providing exceptional care, support, education and consultation. 

Background Statement

We are the largest non-profit provider of hospice, palliative and bereavement in the Commonwealth, having provided expert compassionate care to tens of thousands of terminally ill patients and their families since 1978. We serve 1,000 patients daily in more than 95 eastern Massachusetts communities wherever patients live – private homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, hospitals, or in our two in-patient units where we can support up to 38 patients for whom home care is not possible or for home care patients in need of hospital-level stabilization without requiring a costly re-admittance.

We offer specialized clinical programs for patients with advanced dementia, cardiac and respiratory diseases. We also provide programs tailored to the needs of adults with developmental disabilities, veterans, the LGBTQ community and members of all faiths. We address the multiple and intertwined needs of our patients by creating holistic care plans that address the clinical, psycho-social, and spirituals needs of our patients and families with both clinical and non-invasive therapies. Programs include complementary therapies, palliative care, pastoral and bereavement support, professional and community education programs.

 

Historical Timeline:

  • 2005: We constructed and opened the state’s first freestanding inpatient hospice center, the Kaplan Family Hospice House, located in Danvers.
  • 2010: We expanded on the Hospice House adding an additional eight patient rooms.
  • 2011: Care Dimensions acquired Partners Healthcare’s hospice program, expanding our geographic reach to include Boston and Norfolk County.
  • 2014: We changed our name from Hospice of the North Shore and Greater Boston to Care Dimensions to better reflect our services.
  • In 2016, we were awarded a grant from the MA Health Policy Commission for a two-year project, working in partnership with North Shore Physicians Group, to embed palliative care support into primary care practices.
  • In 2015, we were the recipient of the American Hospital Association’s Circle of Life Award.
  • In 2015 and 2016, we were recognized as a Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for promoting inclusive policies and practices for patient, visitors and employees.

Impact Statement

We continue to pioneer ways to enrich quality of life for those affected by life-limiting illness. Our recent accomplishments (2018 – 2019) include:

  • Opened the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, MA, an 18 suite in-patient facility offering hospital-level support to greater Boston hospice patients. Since opening in April, 2018, we have supported more than 300 patients and their families.
  • Boston University Institute for Health Systems Innovation & Policy award winner for ‘Hospice Care for Intellectually & Developmentally Disabled Adults Program.”
  • Voted Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare. Care Dimensions was the only hospice winner from New England.
  • Established a Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) to incorporate patient and family feedback to further enrich our support programs and enhance the paint and family experience.
  • Established a free transportation service to enable families without transportation to visit loved ones in our Danvers and Lincoln in-patient facilities 

 Our key areas of focus for 2019 include:

1. Invest in technology at the patient, agency and community levels.

2. Increase community awareness of hospice and the need for advance directives. 

3. Expand and enhance palliative care program. 


Needs Statement

Nationally and locally, our elder population continues to grow, and more people are living longer with serious and chronic illness. Philanthropic support of Care Dimensions helps us fill the gaps in the comprehensive hospice care not covered by insurance or Medicare, such as:

  • Covering the cost of treatments for patients that insurance may not consider a necessity based on their diagnosis.
  • Covering the cost of hospice care for the uninsured, which even today still exists throughout Greater Boston.
  • Ensuring we have the systems to ensure smooth continuity of care to avoid symptom escalation and avoidable expenses.
  • Lack of understanding about hospice and palliative care among the community and even healthcare workers.

CEO Statement

Our organization is one of the country’s first and most innovative providers of hospice and palliative care. We take care of more than 1,000 patients daily, providing each patient with a team of board-certified doctors and nurses, social workers, chaplains, and specialists to ensure expert care from people that have chosen to specialize in this selected field.

 

I have been a nurse for more than 40 years and I often hear regret from patients that wait too long to think about end-of-life care. There are universal realities for people that are seriously ill and if they have the time, and support from a strong hospice organization, they can spend their last days achieving final goals. Care Dimensions focuses on bettering quality of life for the patient, and the family. We want to honor our patients and make sure the lives they are completing are as distinguished as the lives that they live. Our staff and volunteers at Care Dimensions consistently offers the best care, and makes intentional choices and priorities to help our patients on their journey of saying good-bye and leaving a legacy for their families to remember them.

 

We have made huge progress in four decades of service in eastern Massachusetts, but we have much more work left to do. Less than half of those eligible for hospice elect it. And although 90% of persons surveyed say talking about their final wishes is important, only 30% take any action. Most say that prefer to die in tier home but most die in institutions instead. We are committed to helping people prepare well in advance of any crisis, and want to help their healthcare providers have accurate and timely conversations with their patients.

As a non-profit, community-based organization we have an opportunity to serve people of all backgrounds and socio-economic standing and we are committed to helping more individuals and families access care early, and receive support during one of the most challenging times in their lives. No one is denied care from Care Dimensions because of financial status, level of insurance coverage or ability to pay. Thank you for your consideration to support our work.

 

- Patricia Ahern, RN, MBA, FACHE, President and CEO of Care Dimensions


Board Chair Statement

In a constantly evolving healthcare market, Care Dimensions has continued to enjoy strong growth for more than four decades by offering innovative clinical programs, providing earlier and easier access to care for sicker patients, delivering consistently high quality care, and developing new referral partners.

Programs

Hospice and Palliative Care

Hospice Services: With support from our hospice team, terminally ill patients may remain at home at the end of life, surrounded by family and friends. If residing at home is no longer an option, we provide hospice services for patients in over 100 long-term care or assisted-living facilities. Patients who cannot remain at home and need specialized care can be admitted to the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers or the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln.    

Palliative Care is offered to patients who suffer from advanced and progressive life-limiting illness, but do not meet the criteria for hospice care. Palliative care provides patient and family-centered care that focuses on improving quality of life through pain and symptom management while also addressing the patient’s emotional, social and spiritual needs.
 
Bereavement Program: Care Dimensions is widely recognized for its bereavement program – considered to be the most comprehensive in New England. The only dedicated bereavement center in Massachusetts, our Bertolon Center for Grief and Healing provides services that are available to anyone who has experienced a loss. We help honor the memory of those lost by providing grief support to 7,000 adults and children each year. We offer counseling services, workshops, support groups, bereavement camp, and crisis intervention at schools, businesses and community organizations.
 

Specialized Programs: We offer specialized clinical programs for patients with advanced dementia, cardiac and respiratory diseases. In addition, we provide programs tailored to the needs of adults with developmental disabilities, and veterans. 

Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care: Our pediatric program is highly specialized and serves children with life-limiting conditions. We have an open access philosophy that allows pediatric patients to continue receiving curative treatments while enrolled in hospice. Care Dimensions is the only dedicated pediatric hospice and palliative program for children in the state.

Complementary Therapies: At Care Dimensions, we integrate mind-body complementary therapies as an essential feature of total hospice care. Working in harmony with traditional medical and psycho-social services, these non-invasive, holistic practices help ease tension, reduce anxiety and improve overall comfort for patients. Our patients tell us they experience a sense of peace and well-being after receiving complementary therapy.

Budget  $57,744,333.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Hospice Care
Population Served Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 

Enhanced comfort is an immediate, desirable, and holistic goal of patient care at Care Dimensions. Outcomes of palliative and hospice care include:

  • Minimized pain and non-pain symptoms
  • Maximized quality of life
  • Support for the needs of family members
  • Providing consultations on goals of care
Program Long-Term Success 

Hospice focusses on caring, not curing. Considered the model for quality compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness, hospice provides expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patient’s loved ones as well.

Long-term success would be when anyone facing a life-limiting illness has the availability and option to choose palliative and/or hospice care, and have the right to die on their own terms.
Program Success Monitored By 

Hospice providers are required by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to assess the quality and experience of the care we provide to patients and their families using standardized measurement tools. Quality is measured using the Hospice Item Set (HIS) which examines our clinical practices upon admission and discharge. Experience of care is measured using the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey which is mailed out two months after the patient’s death to the primary caregiver.

Ongoing success is measured using our monthly dashboard results to drive performance improvement activities and both tools are benchmarked against national performance standards. Performance is also shared with our BOD Quality and Compliance Committee. Long-term success is measured by progressive improvement, achievement of benchmarks, and sustaining excellence.

 
Examples of Program Success 

Patient “Woody” Wooldridge: “Since Care Dimensions has been involved, I’ve been able to maintain my independence. I go down to Dunkin’ Donuts, make my own coffee. I can come and go. That’s great for me.”

 

“Before, when he got sick and I couldn’t get to him, the only thing he had was the Lifeline, and he’d end up in the hospital,” said Sandy, his daughter/caregiver. “With Care Dimensions, he would call Wanda [his RN], and she’d either advise him how to control his shortness of breath… or she’d come over and deal with the situation.” A couple of times when his symptoms became too acute to manage at home, he was able to go the Kaplan Family Hospice House for care.”

 
“Wanda is a wonder,” raved Woody. “She’s a fantastic lady who knows her stuff. Just thinking she’s coming is enough to pull my spirits up.”

Sharing his wishes for end-of-life care and choosing hospice with Care Dimensions allowed Woody to live his final months as he wanted: independent and social.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?
