Essex County Estate Planning Council
Danvers, MA— The Essex County Estate Planning Council has announced that Care Dimensions, the state’s largest hospice organization, has signed on to be an Elite Annual Sponsor for the 2015-2016 membership year.
As an Elite Annual Sponsor, Care Dimensions has made a yearlong commitment to support the Council’s educational programming and annual dinner, the ECEPC’s signature event held each spring, and will be recognized throughout the year for its sponsorship. New this year, the Elite Annual Sponsorship is a way for the Council to ensure that it is providing quality programming to its members. This level of sponsorship also provides Care Dimensions with the opportunity to network with members on an ongoing basis and to introduce their services to a growing group of estate planning professionals deeply committed to providing their clients with the information they need to make smart choices about the future.
Care Dimensions, the 2015 national winner of the Circle of Life Award for palliative and end-of-life care, offers hospice care, palliative care, specialized care and grief support for adults and children of all ages in 90 communities across Eastern Massachusetts. Founded in 1978 as Hospice of the North Shore, Care Dimensions cares for patients – in their homes, in long-term care and assisted living communities, in hospitals and at their Kaplan Family Hospice House – throughout all stages of advanced illness.
“We are very grateful for the support of Care Dimensions,” said Ed Cahill, ECEPC president. “Their sponsorship not only supports quality programming for our members, it also gives our members a connection to a local leader in advanced illness care, a service that as estate planning professionals, we need to know about.”
“Care Dimensions is proud to partner with the Essex County Estate Planning Council,” said Elizabeth Macomber, Care Dimension’s vice president for philanthropy. “The Council provides high-quality, specialized programming to estate planning professionals and we hope to become another resource to members whose clients may need hospice or palliative care in the future.”
Thanks in part to the support of sponsors like Care Dimensions, the ECEPC is offering more educational events this year than ever before. The Council’s educational breakfast series kicks off at Spinelli’s in Lynnfield this Thursday morning and features Jeff Melick, Esq., of Kates & Barlow, PC, who will discuss “Estate Planning Through a Divorce.” You can register online at www.essexcountepc.org. A complete schedule of events can also be found on our website, or on our news blog, www.ecepc.wordpress.com.
