Your last moments should mean as much as your first

A hospice is a place for the care of the dying or the incurably ill. This is entirely different from regular nursing homes and hospitals.

Hospices offer a type of care that focuses on reducing pain and helping with emotional issues to make leaving this life as comfortable as possible.

Many people go through their final days alone, but that will not happen in a hospice.

The special people who work in hospices, both professionals and volunteers, focus on bringing comfort, self-respect, and tranquility, to people in the final days of life. They truly do care.

I know such a volunteer, and I admire her, as she does things that I could not do.

Your local hospice needs your support if it is to be around when you need it.
