Haverhill First Responders Caravan in Honor of Home Health Foundation
To celebrate the efforts of local first responders, the Haverhill Fire Department and Trinity Ambulance will lead a caravan of decorated cars during shift change to support the behind-the-scenes efforts of the visiting nurses, hospice nurses and other health care workers of the Home Health Foundation, a Lawrence-based organization fighting to protect patients and the community from the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The event will occur on Saturday, April 25, at 3 p.m. The parade begins at High Pointe House, the hospice and palliative care residence of Merrimack Valley Hospice in Haverhill. Vehicles will begin lining the right-hand side of the driveway at 2:45 p.m.
This caravan is intended to honor a special unit recently opened for patients with COVID-19 at High Pointe House, an acute care hospice residence which provides a home-like alternative to hospitalization for those in need of specialized end-of-life care.
The community is welcome to help celebrate the efforts of High Pointe House clinicians, as well as the agency’s visiting nurses.
[Note: Attendees have been asked to observe social distancing by remaining in their cars. Due to the sensitive nature of the hospice house location, emergency vehicles will display lights, but no sirens and participants will be encouraged to cheer, but not honk, scream or play loud music.]
