The Chelsea Jewish Hospice and Palliative Care Difference
Confronting a life limiting illness is one of the most difficult situations of all. At Chelsea Jewish Hospice and Palliative Care, we consider it an honor and a privilege to care for our clients and their families each and every step of the way. Throughout the end-of-life journey, our hospice team is dedicated to providing compassionate care while helping you or a loved one and family find the support, services and resources you need. Serving the Greater Boston community, we focus on the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of individuals and families.
The founding of the Chelsea Jewish Hospice and Palliative Care was inspired by the compassionate caregiving of podiatrist Dr. Matthew S. Shwartz. For over two decades, Dr. Shwartz dedicated his medical expertise to those living in or seeking services in Revere, Chelsea and Malden, serving each individual with kind and compassionate care. With a degree from Clark University, the Malden-born podiatrist offered not only skilled podiatric services to his clients, but also an approach to care that went above and beyond the usual doctor-patient protocols.
At Chelsea Jewish Hospice and Palliative Care, proper healthcare meant one simple thing: providing the best services for clients through the implementation of quality care combined with a strong sense of understanding, kindness and respect. Today, Chelsea Jewish Hospice and Palliative Care Hospice endeavors to emulate Dr. Shwartz’s teachings and philosophy of care. In this way, Dr. Shwartz’s legacy of compassionate caregiving will never be forgotten.
