NEWBURYPORT – The Institution for Savings had donated $5,000 to Care Dimensions to support the nonprofit’s grief support program.
Care Dimensions is the largest hospice and palliative care provider to adults and children in Massachusetts.
“Our mission calls us to support patients as well as the bereaved after the loved one is lost,” said Patrice DePasquale, director of Bereavement Services. “We are so grateful to the Institution for Savings for their commitment to support grieving families in our community.”
“The pandemic dramatically increased demand for our bereavement services to support families suffering unexpected and sometimes multiple losses complicated by social isolation,” said Care Dimensions President and CEO Stephanie Patel.
“Community health is very important to us, and this donation will support Care Dimension’s efforts to deliver quality care to so many in the communities we serve,” said Institution for Savings President and CEO Michael J. Jones.
