Notre Dame Health Care Center’s At Home division has launched a new palliative care program that will expand the company’s reach across central Massachusetts. Hospice News recently connected with Executive Director Susan Keefe of the At Home Division, who said that the move followed lessons learned from the implementation of a pediatric palliative care program.

That pediatric initiative was one factor that opened the organization’s eyes to the rising need for this kind of care. 

Notre Dame Palliative Care is available to adults facing serious illness and builds upon the company’s existing service line. Based in Worcester, Mass., Notre Dame Health Care Center, Inc., provides adult and pediatric hospice and palliative care, along with assisted living, specialized memory care and long-term care and rehabilitation skilled nursing services. Through the new program, staff will provide palliative care to patients in their homes, skilled nursing and assisted living facilities.
