"I could count on Samaritan for anything," said Josephine Rickert as she cared for her father John.After serving as his primary caregiver for years, Josephine didn’t think anyone could care for her father the way she did. “I became very protective of him,” Josephine says. “But Samaritan was amazing. They went to such lengths for his care, and always helped maintain his dignity."Read their entire story including a touching moment with a special clay heart presented to Josephine.: bit.ly/2VkNPi6 ...

I will continue to fight to ensure the 29th Legislative District is put first!

Thank you M. Teresa Ruiz for sponsoring bill S3118 that will establish a public awareness campaign to promote early conversations about advance care planning and end-of-life care. This bill aligns with #GOCCNJ mission for patients to discuss, decide, and document final stages of life care goals which will result in lower ICU admissions, increase palliative and hospice use, and lower hospital deaths. #GOCCNJ #goalsofcare #AdvanceCarePlanning #DiscussDecideDocument ...

Thank you Senators #JoeVitale, #RonaldLRice, Senator Fred H. Madden,#JamesBeach, Anthony Bucco, Declan J. O'Scanlon Jr., #PatrickJDiegnanJr, Senator Troy Singleton, #LorettaWeinberg for sponsoring bill S2682 that requires certain health care facilities to provide information concerning palliative care and hospice care. NJ needs to improve education about these care services so patients and families know when and how to best utilize them. This will ensure loved ones are given the right care at the right time. #GOCCNJ #goalsofcare #palliativecare #hospicecare ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you M. Teresa Ruiz for sponsoring bill S3116 that requires certain medical facilities to undertake end-of-life planning and training as a condition of licensure. In NJ, key reasons for burdensome end-of-life care is the lack of thorough, patient-centered discussions about final stages of life care goals and low rates of completion of advance directives. #GOCCNJ recognizes the importance of education and training in advance care planning which we continue to engage in throughout the state. This bill will support our current efforts to improve end-of-life care and expand the scope to benefit all NJ residents. #GOCCNJ #goalsofcare #AdvanceCarePlanning #DiscussDecideDocument ...
