For over ten years, Hospice Care of America has been committed to providing comfort and support to the dying and grieving among us. We are now further committed, through both our Palliative Care Community Partners Program and Hospice Program, to providing much-needed support through all stages of serious illness.
Palliative Care is advanced symptom management and care coordination that focuses on comfort and quality of life for individuals with cancer and other serious illnesses, who may still be receiving curative treatments at clinics or outpatient facilities. Community-based palliative care provides coordinated, comprehensive, holistic care in the home.
Hospice is is a health care program that is designed for anyone who has been diagnosed with a critical disease which could cause death within six months. Often, for these individuals, the burdens of curative treatment are greater than the benefit, and quality of life becomes the focus of care. Hospice provides all the resources needed to meet the person's complex physical, emotional and spiritual needs in the comfort, dignity and privacy of home.
My twin sister, Jane, taught me about living at the end of one's life. She showed me there is abundance and joy in those precious and final months, weeks and days of living. From Jane I learned, though death comes to us all, many of us fail to truly live when our remaining days are few.
Since that special time with my sister in 1999, God has allowed me, and all of our team at Hospice Care of America, Palliative Care Community Partners, and We Honor Veterans, to come alongside many others on their journey—relieving physical, emotional or spiritual pain and the fear of suffering, giving comfort, dignity and hope to the one who is facing a serious illness; and providing support to their beloved families and friends.
Thank you for allowing us to partner with you on your journey. We pledge to work together, within our various strengths and callings, using our community partners and resources, to help you achieve your goals for this final chapter of your life and find peace and comfort in the company of your loved ones, at that familiar place you call "home." For we know that we shall all be together again when we reach our final destiny, beyond the shores of sickness and death.
God bless you and fill your life with satisfaction and joy.
