Challenge

The reality of death is a daunting topic for most people and addressing end-of-life challenges can be overwhelming during such emotionally trying times. Within Massachusetts, there are service and health care providers available for those facing life-threatening illness or injury. Yet sadly, many who might benefit from this information have difficulty locating needed resources or are not even aware they exist. Our project helps connect thousands of people to the resources they need at no cost.

Solution

End With Care provides an end-of-life Resource Directory delivered free of charge through a public website. It includes a compilation of licensed, certified, or otherwise qualified Massachusetts care and service providers. An easy to use and powerful search engine helps users find resources by geographic location across the state, by type of service, or by name or keyword. We also offer educational information on a variety of end-of-life topics, through checklists, articles, blogs, and more.

Long-Term Impact

We believe End With Care is an important addition to the end-of-life care landscape, offering information and resources that can inform behavior and affect addressing one's needs and challenges in the final stage of life. Through a gateway to services and care, our goal is to bridge those in need to those who can help. By increasing awareness and access to end-of-life resources, End With Care will help enhance the quality of life, at the end of life.
