Hospice workers deserve their month
November 9, 2010 · Updated 2:56 PM
President Barack Obama has declared November as National Hospice Month. In his words, “During National Hospice Month, we recognize the dignity hospice care can provide to patients who need it most, and the professionals, volunteers, and family members who bring peace to individuals in their final days. Hospice care gives medical services, emotional support, and spiritual resources to people facing life-limiting illnesses. It can also help families and caregivers manage the details and emotional challenges of caring for a dying loved one.”
From all of us here at North Whidbey Caregivers’ Cove we thank Whidbey General Hospice and Skagit Hospice for their dedication to serving these special people and their families. It’s comforting to know these fine caregivers are in Island County to care for all of us in our time of need. Thank you Hospice!
