This Season of Hope is the time we celebrate those we love.
This year, you can give a year-end gift to help a Hope Hospice patient or bereavement client who is in critical need this holiday season. Your help is needed now more than ever. Hope Hospice has experienced a sharp increase in admissions in the last year alone. Dementia-related cases now surpass cancer as the most common condition on admission. This trend is expected to continue.
Give the Gift of Hope
This year, Hope Hospice has a special giving opportunity with a new ornament design for 2018
$200 – Exquisite crystal ornament etched with your choice of the word HOPE, or a dove in flight.
$250 or more – A personalized ornament with your choice of the word HOPE, or a dove in flight. We will add a name of your choice, the year 2018, or a phrase of up to 18 characters.
$450 or more – Order two ornaments and personalize both with a name, phrase, or the year 2018.
GENERAL DONATION (No ornament)
For nearly 40 years, Hope Hospice has helped patients affirm life and live each day to the fullest by providing high-quality end-of-life patient care and compassionate support to their families. As a not-for-profit community-based organization, Hope Hospice serves everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
Here are just a few of the services that are funded with your donation:
- Home visits by nurses, home health aides, chaplains and others who help families care for a dying loved one at home. Compassionate care protects the patient’s dignity, honors his or her wishes, and helps reduce a family’s anxieties and concerns.
- One-on-one grief counseling and/or group sessions for local adults, teens and children who have lost a family member or friend.
- Bedside vigiling by trained volunteers who also provide respite for family caregivers while they take a break.
- Outreach activities that inform and educate the community about hospice and other end-of-life care planning.
The Hope team helps to bring calm and peacefulness to each situation and helps families reduce their anxiety and feelings of inadequacy and isolation.
We are grateful for our community’s support that allows Hope Hospice to carry out its mission to more than 600 local families each year. Some 1,500 members of the community also receive grief support.
