Lawrence, Mass. – Merrimack Valley Hospice was awarded a $15,000 grant from TD Charitable Foundation to support a variety of hospice and palliative care services throughout the region.
“We are extremely grateful for the continuing support of the TD Charitable Foundation,” said Karen Gomes, RN, MS, CPHQ, President and CEO of Home Health Foundation, which includes Home Health VNA, Merrimack Valley Hospice and HomeCare, Inc. “As a mission driven agency, Merrimack Valley Hospice is committed to providing care to all patients and families in our care. This grant will help ensure that the highest quality end-of-life care is available for patients in any number of settings including homes, hospitals, assisted living or long-term care facilities and at High Pointe House, the hospice and palliative care residence of Merrimack Valley Hospice located in Haverhill.”
Hospice services are available to patients whose illness is no longer responding to curative treatment and palliative or comfort care has been chosen. Merrimack Valley Hospice provides the services and support necessary to enhance the quality of life for patients so they can spend their final days in peace.
Merrimack Valley Hospice is a not-for-profit agency providing comfort care and supportive services to patients nearing the end of life, and bereavement services to their families and loved ones.
