The MDRT Foundation recently donated $2,000 to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital & Health Foundation to support the hospital’s Palliative Care Program.
The Palliative Care Program at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital (WDH) began in 2007 to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for patients and families dealing with chronic or life threatening illness. According to Michele Loos, RN, MS, CHPN, Palliative Care Coordinator, palliative care is not exclusively end-of-life care – it involves physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual needs and optimized quality of life by anticipating and treating suffering.
