Summer has arrived and the signs of change are all around us. Trees and shrubs show their flowers in parks and gardens and the days grow longer, brighter, and warmer. With the arrival of summer, I’m reminded of all the seasons we New Englanders experience, and how they mirror the changing seasons of life. Some, like summer, bring respite. Others bring changes that are more challenging to experience.
At Merrimack Valley Hospice, our goal is to support patients as they move through a profoundly meaningful and yet challenging season of their lives. Hospice is a compassionate approach to end-of-life care that focuses on comfort and quality of life for patients with advanced illness, when cure is no longer possible. And, when home is no longer possible, High Pointe House, the hospice and palliative care residence of Merrimack Valley Hospice provides compassion, dignity and comfort to patients and support to family members. High Pointe House focuses on quality and comfort for the patient and allows for simple pleasures and treasured moments.
