All Care Hospice staff help families enjoy Thanksgiving

By Staff reports Swampscott Reporter Posted Nov 29, 2010 @ 02:42 PM All Care Hospice team members wanted to give back this Thanksgiving holiday by helping out some of the families for whom they are caring. The staff explained that their goal is most simply to enhance the quality of a person's life while optimizing the time spent with family and friends. November was also National Caregiver's month, and to honor this observance All Care Hospice wanted to support the caregivers that they serve. With that in mind, families received full-course Thanksgiving dinners from All Care Hospice. 'While everyone enjoys and looks forward to the holidays, they can still be stressful,' All Care noted in a press release. 'Caring for a loved one at the end of his or her life can certainly add to that stress and take an emotional toll.' The objective of the team was to make this one day just a bit easier. 'We wanted families to be able to enjoy one another and not have to worry about cooking Thanksgiving dinner,' said Rachel Russo, clinical director of All Care Hospice. 'By providing these meals, we were hoping to take care of one of the many tasks these families face during the holidays.' 'Hospice is about living life to the fullest,' said Dr. Lewis Hays of Marblehead, All Care Hospice medical director. 'We want families to remember this holiday and the good times they had with one another.' For more information about All Care Hospice services and programs, call 800-287-2454 or visit  allcarehospice.org.
