A Letter from Our CEO
Over a nursing career, you see thousands of patients. And while it would be impossible to remember all the names, it is the faces that always stand out. Sometimes it is the complexity of the case, but often it's a funny story from the patient or a complicated conversation that most resonate.
In the course of a week, I have the privilege of interacting with so many incredible people who drive our mission in such critical ways. Each individual is advancing our focus on patient care, but their reasons and roles are as diverse as the faces across this publication.
We are only as strong as the people around us, and my tenure as CEO has solidified that belief. Whether considering a volunteer, board member, front line clinical colleague or a donor, our successful story of high-level clinical care in the home stalls when we are down in just one of these key roles.
Home care, both nationally and in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, will experience challenging financial days ahead. We, however, remain vigilant in our belief that excellent patient care drives every decision.
Finally, our story only grows with the investment of donors backing our mission.
My profound gratitude to our supporters.

Our annual evening in support of the 12 patient rooms as the first non-profit hospice residence on the South Shore is one of the region's most anticipated events on the summer calendar. Save the Date for The 12 taking place in June 2023. If you would like to learn more or are interested in joining our planning committee, please contact Lisa Mullen at email@example.com.
Homes across the South Shore come together on one night each year to help support the fund for patients unable to afford room and board at the Pat Roche Hospice Home.
