Palliative Care in Massachusetts for Adults and Children

Palliative Care with Notre Dame At Home improves quality of life for both you and your family. In the compassionate spirit of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Notre Dame Health Care’s Palliative team fosters a deep understanding of life’s journey, ensuring those who need Palliative Care can receive the support they need whether in their home, an Assisted Living community, or wherever they may call home.


Mom fell in love with Kate M. almost immediately. Thank you for working collaboratively with Mom – the original “Little Red Hen,” “I will do it MYSELF.” And she did. Tatiana even got my mother to give some credit and value to the field of social work – a tall order.  Bev came in the first day to do personal care and walked into a house with a broken furnace and no hot water. Although I was a wreck Bev calmly found some pots and began to boil water on the stove, amazing!  Colleen had so many special talks with Mom…and did a great job with her hair! I also want to recognize the care and compassion with which Kate B. responded to Mom’s death.  I don’t use the word “patient” as my mother was treated as a valuable individual person throughout her journey with you as I’m sure everyone is.

A Pedi Pals family expresses their appreciation to their Pedi Pals Care Team

“Seasons greetings!
What a surreal existence this has become for all of us over the past two years now.  It has certainly helped to sharpen our focus as to what’s truly important as we try to make the best of each given day.  As certain as the sun rises each morning each and everyone of you at Pedi Pals has remained steadfast in your support of our family.  That is such a blessing we feel deep in our hearts and want thank all of you for your perseverance.  You have and continue to improve the quality of our lives despite the war that Maddie continues to fight with each passing day.  Life is better because of all of you ❤️”

One of our Pedi Pals families enjoys the music therapy provided by our Music Therapist, Emily Field

“Jane has been receiving music therapy through Pedi Pals for the past 7 years. I truly believe that Jane would not be where she is today without Emily visiting our home every month. Music brings Jane true joy and with all that she struggles with daily it is so nice to hear her squeals of excitement when she sees Emily pull up into our driveway. We thank our lucky stars every single day to have this program and Emily in our life!”
