Welcome to South Shore Hospice Palliative Care Society

A Message from Our Chair, Trudy Johnson

When a small, but passionate group of volunteers got together to form the South Shore Hospice Palliative Care Society in 2019, we recognized there was a need in our community for enhanced palliative services and we knew that there would be interest. But we had no idea the level of engagement and support that would pour in from the community. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us in any way, whether through an encouraging word or a financial donation. All are appreciated.

Sincerely, Trudy Johnson
Board Chair, South Shore Hospice Palliative Care Society
