Here at End With Care, our goal is to connect the public to the end-of-life resources they need. There are numerous end-of-life related events taking place throughout Massachusetts. For your convenience, we have put together the following list for this month.



December Events

Tree of Memories Remembrance Ceremonies--Various Locations
For the last 28 years, people have celebrated memories of loved ones at Hope Hospice’s Tree of Memories remembrance ceremonies. These meaningful events are a way to capture the spirit of the winter-holiday season while supporting patients and families who rely on hospice care. We invite you to make a donation to Hope Hospice for a scallop-shell tree ornament that will be inscribed with the name of a loved one. This ornament will be hung on a community tree at one of 20 Tree of Memories ceremonies held throughout December, and family and friends are welcome to attend.
