Connections Spring 2024 Volume 55 Newsletter for Families and Friends Donations Lead to Comfort & Warmth for Hospice House Patients

There is nothing quite like the feel of a warm blanket when you’re feeling cold. That can be especially true for hospice patients, who can often spend much of their day in bed and may have trouble maintaining their body heat. Thanks to the support of community donors, patients at the Kaplan Family Hospice House are getting that extra layer of comfort and warmth. This past winter, a specialized “blanket warmer” was installed at the house, heating up stacks of blankets, which can then be delivered to patients who request them. “This project was really driven by staff, who are always seeking ways to make our patients more comfortable,” said Jen Sawyer, clinical director at the Kaplan House. “Blanket warmers are sometimes used in hospitals to keep patients warm when they’re coming in and out of surgery. We recognized the potential to bring this same level of comfort to our hospice house patients on a regular basis.”

Members of the Kaplan House team display warm blankets: Ivan Gomez, certified nursing assistant; Katherine Crawford, nurse resident; Rachael White, RN; Stacy Hess, RN; Jen Sawyer, clinical director.

The purchase of the blanket warmer was made possible through last fall’s “Comics for Care” fundraiser hosted by Prince Pizzeria in Saugus. Community supporters generously contributed thousands of dollars in individual donations that night to support this specific initiative.

“Wow! This is great after my bath.”

Since then, the Parmenter Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports end-of-life care and bereavement programs in the MetroWest area, granted funds for a blanket warmer at the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln. Together, the two houses provide care for upwards of 40 patients each day.

“How wonderful! I am always cold, so this is very nice.”

“This story exemplifies our staff’s ability to identify a need, and then our community of donors rising to meet that need,” said Lyn Skarmeas, vice president and chief strategy officer. “Everyone at Care Dimensions is so appreciative of the generous support we received. And the blanket warmers are a concrete example of how donations directly benefit those under our care every day.”

Gratitude Endures Years After Wife’s Hospice Care

Hello Dear Friends: As I reflect on my first full year as CEO of Care Dimensions, I am humbled by the incredible journey we’ve embarked on together. Throughout 2023, we faced challenges with resilience, always keeping our focus on our mission to provide compassionate care to those facing serious illness. I’ve been inspired by the innovative ways our supporters have stepped up this past year. From an inaugural comedy event to the sweet success of an ice cream fundraiser, these events showcased the strength of our community’s commitment

In October of 2007, Mark Palmer became a single parent to two young children when his wife, Sue, died following a two-year bout with a rare form of soft tissue cancer. Sue, who was just 43 years old, had been referred to hospice by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. A team from Hospice of the North Shore (now Care Dimensions) took care of her at home for six weeks. The children – Jack and Ruby – were six and four years old when Sue died. More than 16 years later, Jack and Ruby are now in their 20s, but Mark never forgot the lessons he learned from his wife’s end-of-life journey and the support he received while helping his children deal with their grief. A former software business CEO, Mark is now a prominent social media voice about technology, data, and leadership. He writes and speaks about “Where Technology Meets Humanity” (see https:// techno-sapien.com/). He continues to appreciate the care and support his family received years ago during and following Sue’s time on hospice. He recently republished “When You Suddenly Become a Mom and a Dad,” in which he shares lessons learned from that experience. Hospice supports patient and family Mark recalls driving Sue from their Merrimack Valley home to Dana-Farber for outpatient treatment several times a week. “Those trips became an exhausting grind for Sue, and nearly unbearable because of her pain,” Mark remembers. “Previously, Sue had volunteered for a hospice, so when her doctor recommended the service, she knew it meant comfort and support” As soon as Sue came onto hospice, “the situation shifted from a battle to just ensuring she was comfortable so she could spend quality time with family and friends,” recalls Mark. Hospice of the North Shore ordered and set up a hospital bed for Sue in the Palmers’ living room. Sue’s hospice team visited regularly and included a nurse, aide, and chaplain. An art therapist helped Jack and Ruby express their feelings.

“The nurses took charge of Sue’s care, and the team was so proactive. Everything was taken care of, and it feels like magic that it happened,” Mark remembers. “Our coordinator suggested art therapy for the kids. I had never even heard of art therapy, but it proved to be very helpful.

to our cause. Meanwhile, traditional gatherings like the Walk for Hospice and Tree of Lights saw increased participation, marking a return to togetherness as we move beyond pandemic precautions. Yet, it’s not just these large gatherings that make a difference. Small, personal acts of kindness touch the hearts of our patients. From Thanksgiving meal donations to volunteers serenading patients with Christmas carols to a Valentine’s Day barbershop quartet, your compassion is felt across our organization. I extend my deepest gratitude to each and every one of our donors for your unwavering support. Your generosity fuels our mission and enables us to provide vital services to those who need them most. Your contributions truly make a difference, and we are profoundly grateful for your partnership. As we continue this journey together, I am filled with hope and optimism. With your ongoing support, we can continue our commitment to providing compassionate, quality care for those on their end-of-life journey. With thanks and gratitude,

Jack, Sue, Ruby, and Mark Palmer posed for a family photo during a Florida vacation. “For example,” Mark continues, “the art therapist showed Jack and Ruby a jar filled with slips of paper that contained pictures and words drawn by kids whose parents were also sick. The kids loved this and scribbled their drawings. Jack drew a sad face, and Ruby drew a happy one. When I asked Ruby what makes her happy, she replied, ‘Now that mom’s home and the TV is set up in the dining room, I get to ride on the hospital bed and watch I Love Lucy with her.’ Lessons in grief Following Sue’s death, Mark, Jack, and Ruby attended Care Dimensions’ grief support camp, Camp Stepping Stones, during the summers of 2008 and 2009. Mark recalls some important lessons he learned: “One of the sessions for adults described how a child’s understanding of death changes as they get older: from zero to four, they don’t understand the concept of permanence; from six to the teenage years, they understand that permanence and how it makes them ‘different’

Stephanie Patel, MD, MBA, FAAHPM, HMDC President and CEO Board Chair’s Letter

It is with heartfelt appreciation and admiration that I look back on this past year— Dr. Stephanie Patel’s first full year as our extraordinary CEO, effective, visionary leadership by her executive team, and energy and passionate caring displayed by all the Care Dimensions staff, supporters, and volunteers. I have been involved with Care Dimensions for almost 15 years—as a grateful recipient of home hospice services for my father, as a financial supporter, as a Board member, and now as Board Chair. It takes very special people to care for those with serious illness, and Care Dimensions is defined by these exceptional individuals. My eternal gratitude goes out to Care Dimensions’ aides, nurses, and doctors; to our chaplains, social workers, and complementary therapists; to the expert administrative professionals who enable Care Dimensions’ good works; and to the hospice volunteers who provide comfort and companionship to our patients and their families and friends. What each of you, and all of us, support—through our donations, volunteer work, and advocacy for Care Dimensions—are the people who support each of us every day with such compassion, intelligence, and grace. I join them in thanking you for your caring, and for your support.

Consumer Survey: CD Beats National Average

Resources from Care Dimensions’ Grief Support Program

Results of the 2023 Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Hospice Survey (https://www.hospicecahpssurvey. org/) show Care Dimensions topping the national average in all eight categories and improving all its scores from 2022. The CAHPS Hospice Survey focuses on experiences of care from the caregiver’s point of view. The 47-question survey is composed of the following measures: Communication with Family; Getting Timely Help; Treating Patient with Respect; Emotional and Spiritual Support; Help for Pain

and Symptoms; Training Family to Care for Patient; Rating of this Hospice; and Willingness to Recommend this Hospice. According to Abbie O’Grady, Care Dimensions director, quality & patient experience, caregivers of prospective hospice patients often check CAHPS scores when researching a hospice. “The 2023 results reinforce what we’ve been seeing in our staff members’ ongoing commitment to caring for our patients and their family members,” O’Grady said.

Making Healing Connections in Support Groups By Bob Hagopian, M.Div., Greater Boston Bereavement Coordinator and Mary Beth Grimm, Greater Boston Bereavement Associate

Care Dimensions offers many in-person and virtual bereavement support groups and workshops for our hospice families and our community through the Bertolon Center for Grief and Healing. These include sessions for people who have experienced a specific kind of loss, such as a spouse, parent, adult child, or loved one who died by suicide. We have noticed that participants in these groups have made amazing healing connections that extend far beyond the sessions. New friendships have been forged out of the sharing of their common losses. These grieving families have come together to inspire and encourage each other. Many gather for coffee following the sessions and plan dinners together during each month. We often hear support group participants say things like, “My family and friends don’t know what I’m going through,“ or, “I feel like I am burdening my friends with my grief.” They need a safe place where they can share their feelings with others who are experiencing similar circumstances, and we provide it for them. They know that they are not alone in their grief journey. “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” ~ Edith Wharton

As support group facilitators, we help participants find solutions to their challenges and the healing that they seek from within themselves and each other. In addition, we learn from the participants and enhance our own abilities, knowledge, and approaches to helping the bereaved heal. We all have the power to heal ourselves and each other. When we are drawn together by our common loss, our healing power is amplified. We have seen this phenomenon first-hand in our support group participants. We encourage you to explore the healing power you have within yourself and to share it with others.

Family Matters: Devoted Siblings Thankful for Mom’s Hospice Care

Volunteer Focus Kindness Comes Full Circle for Hospice Volunteer

Taking care of her family was Eva Griffen’s life mission. Born in 1925, she was one of eight children of Italian immigrants who lived in Somerville, Mass. In 1948, she married Francis Griffen, and they raised two sons and a daughter in Brookline. “She poured everything into family – for her children, her husband, her parents, and her siblings,” recalls her eldest son, Ron Griffen, who describes Eva as “a giving, generous, and loving person who enjoyed interacting with others.” Eva was also strong-willed and independent. After her husband died in 2000, she remained in their senior living residence in Revere, where she had many friends. Although she never had a driver’s license, she took cabs to appointments and did her own grocery shopping. Ron recalls that at age 94, Eva began to show signs of depression and expressed fear of becoming sick. Ron and his siblings, Patricia and Stephen,

convinced Eva to live for a time with Stephen in Peabody while they paid her rent, which ensured she would have the option to return to her apartment when she was able to do so safely. Eva’s decline worsened and she was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and vascular dementia. Her primary care doctor referred her to a psychiatrist, but her fear of becoming ill grew.“She was fixated on this thought and couldn’t let go of it,” recalls Ron. “It was rare for her to rest and be quiet.” After behavioral health hospital stays and therapy were not successful, Eva suffered a mild stroke. Doctors discontinued the therapy and recommended hospice at home with continued medication. Hospice at home with Care Dimensions Ron and his siblings remembered a visiting nurse had mentioned hospice – and Care Dimensions specifically – following Eva’s hospitalization for a broken hip a few months earlier. They called Care Dimensions, and Eva was admitted onto hospice in October 2022. Care Dimensions ordered a hospital bed delivered to Stephen’s house, where Eva was still residing. Eva couldn’t walk due to neuropathy in her legs, and she didn’t like to be moved from bed to wheelchair much. “We could raise the bed, which made it easier for Mom to eat, as we often had to feed her,” Ron notes. An aide came for an hour every Monday through Friday to give personal care to Eva. Nurse Case Manager Maureen Strout visited several times a week to ensure Eva was comfortable and medications were ordered for delivery. She educated the family about hospice and answered their questions. She remembers Eva as “a delightful lady with a warm smile and a very attentive family.” Maureen realized that Eva’s end-of-life journey would be hard on the family. She and social worker Melanie Porter frequently made joint visits to support Eva and her children. “We built a nice rapport with the family and spoke openly about things like advance directives and medications,” Melanie recalls. Spiritual Counselor Hilary Davis MacNeill’s weekly visits included talking with Eva and praying the rosary with her, providing therapeutic touch, and singing to her. Sometimes Eva would sing along when she was having a good day.

Care Dimensions volunteer Michael Person of Wakefield may know better than most people about the power of kindness. He has faced many challenges, including raising a non-verbal special needs daughter, who was born 26 years ago, just six months before his wife, Nicole, was diagnosed with cancer. Nicole died on hospice in 2007. The kindness of others has helped Michael endure tough times. While Nicole was battling cancer, a stranger paid for his family and a nurse to go to Disney World for 10 days. Community donations paid for a new addition to their house. When Nicole died, a stranger paid for her funeral.

Michael Person holds a doll that he brings on visits with a patient who has dementia and enjoys dolls. As one of 12 children who were taught to give back to their community, Michael believes strongly in kindness and helping people. He has volunteered through his church, local food pantry, and other organizations. For the past two years, he has been a Care Dimensions volunteer who visits hospice patients struggling with dementia or other complex conditions. Giving back as hospice volunteer Michael helped care for his wife while she had hospice at home and has been his daughter’s full-time caregiver. “I’ve been exposed to a lot of things that the average person hasn’t,” he says. Michael often sees patients who are non-verbal but finds a way to communicate with them. “I go where they are,” he says. “I connect with them, engage, and stimulate them.” One of his current patients is living with dementia and enjoys playing with her doll. Michael got a doll he could use when visiting the patient. “Now she plays with her doll and my doll. That’s what comforts her. “I’m a firm believer in quality of life, so I’ll do what I can to help my patients with that,” Michael continues. “I’ve been on the receiving end of people’s generosity for 26 years. Life is not a one-way street. You roll with it or lose. I roll with it and try to bring comfort to other people.”

Support from the Community

Devoted Siblings Thankful for Mom’s Hospice Care (continued) “Hospice showed us how to integrate Sue into our lives and honor her memory while building a ‘new normal,’” notes Mark. “That idea comes to life in Ruby, who loves to knit like Sue and play volleyball like Casey. Hospice not only helped us cope with cancer, but also grow as a family together.” Mark Palmer is donating proceeds from his workshop, The Generative AI Growth Mindset (https://maven.com/techno-sapien/growth-mindset), to Care Dimensions. “It was such a blessing that somebody told me what I needed to know – about the benefits of hospice, and how to help my children through their grief while keeping Sue’s memory alive,” says Mark. In 2013, Mark remarried and moved his family to Long Island, NY. He and his wife, Casey, raised Jack and Ruby through middle school, high school, and eventually to college. Jack recently graduated from Duke University, and Ruby is a sophomore at Highpoint University in North Carolina. Mark proudly reports that his children have become successful, kind adults. from other kids. During the teenage years, some kids have problems breaking away from a single parent – usually, with two parents, it’s natural to break with one and stay close with the other. The session helped me view death through Jack and Ruby’s eyes, not the eyes of a parent, and to better communicate with them in a way that made sense for their age.” In his article, “When You Suddenly Become a Mom and a Dad,” Mark discusses this and other lessons that helped him and his children cope with Sue’s death, including: • Lean on friends and family to help you get through the first year after the loss. • Adopt a love mantra to keep your loved one’s spirit with you and your children. Gratitude Endures Years After Wife’s Hospice Care (continued) • Make yourself happy, and your children will follow your lead. • An apocalypse is an uncovering—mostly, it uncovers love. Reflections and giving back “The chaplain would visit one-on-one with our mom, talk with her, and even play guitar and sing to her!” exclaims Ron. “She also greatly helped us deal with the sadness of our mother’s condition. The emotional and mental health support we received was much appreciated.” “Eva’s family did a beautiful job helping to bring her life full circle by caring for her with the same tenderness and 24/7 vigilance that she would have had for them as babies,” notes Hilary. Family grateful for support Several times, family members called Care Dimensions’ nursing support line for advice or to request help during off-hours. “We’d call – sometimes it was 2 o’clock in the morning – and someone would come out,” recalls Ron. “They’d stay as long as they were needed. Our mom’s hospice team saw me and my siblings as part of their responsibility.”

Generous Grant to Support Kaplan House for Next Decade Since opening in 2005, the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers has been a sanctuary for more than 16,000 patients and their families on their end-of-life journeys. Like any building, particularly a medical facility like Kaplan, ongoing funding is crucial for maintaining the structure and surrounding grounds. The Kaplan Family Foundation recently awarded a generous 10-year, $500,000 grant to support the facility. The purpose of the funding is to ensure the house is well-maintained, safe, comfortable, and family- friendly by addressing a range of internal and external projects such as HVAC repairs, flooring, and other improvements.

“We are grateful for the enduring support of the Kaplan family, who not only understand our mission but have been steadfast supporters throughout the years,” said Care Dimensions President & CEO Stephanie Patel, MD. “This grant will play a pivotal role in ensuring that the Kaplan House continues to provide a peaceful and comfortable setting for our patients.” This grant marks a renewed commitment of funds from the Kaplan family a decade ago. And it echoes their instrumental financial support over 20 years ago that was crucial to the construction of the Kaplan House.

‘Ice Cream for Breakfast’ a Big Hit On a Saturday in early February, Putnam Pantry Candies, Ice Creams, and Café in Danvers observed National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day by hosting a fundraiser for Care Dimensions. Hundreds of people turned out for the event, which featured two scoops of ice cream between a Belgian waffle, plus special toppings from Putnam’s extensive smorgasbord. Care Dimensions thanks store owners Cathie and Eric Emerson (at left in photo), and associate Amanda Donahue (right), who presented a $3,000 check to Lyn Skarmeas, VP and chief strategy officer, and Patricia Ramsden, chief clinical officer.

“Care Dimensions allowed our mother and our family the dignity and support that we needed.” ~ Patricia Griffen
