The ceremony acknowledges both the challenges and joys that the holidays present in a setting that is illuminated by the warm glow of light and the camaraderie of those who gather. We hope you can attend and bring friends and family to join this special time of togetherness. If interested, you may also remember through donation.

Service Weaving

On the evening of July 13, 2017 the All Care Hospice and Bereavement Program held a Summer Service of Remembrance at the Lynn office. Over one hundred All Care families, staff and community members gathered together to remember and to seek comfort.

An Intern’s Gratitude

Nine months ago, I began an experience that would prove to be inspiring and life altering. At the time of accepting the All Care Hospice internship, I had not yet fully understood the scope of hospice and bereavement work. These past several months have proved to be the most rewarding and challenging that I have ever experienced.
