A final message
by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager
As we enter the final days of 2015, HPCCR has an important end-of-year message for all of you.
Because of the support from friends, patients we’ve served, and the loved ones of those patients, we have had a wonderful year. And just so you know, our definition of a wonderful year is being able to make a difference in our community.
What does that look like? Well, it means helping patients spend their last days, weeks, and months in comfort. It means being a supportive resource to frightened family members and exhausted caregivers. It’s educating families about when the time is right for hospice care to give them the benefit of much-needed additional help. It’s providing grief support to bereaved family members after their loved one has died. And it’s offering education to our community about end-of-life planning and other equally important topics.
We did all those things in 2015 and we did them with care, compassion, and integrity.
We thank each and every one of you who talked about hospice care and helped us further our mission of spreading the word. We thank the families who allowed us into their homes; who gave us the honor of caring for their loved ones at such an important time. We thank those of you who followed us on Facebook and Twitter, kept up-to-date with the goings-on of our organization, and attended our fundraising events. And we appreciate all of you who read the inspiring stories on this blog, commented on them, or even shared them.
Bottom line? End-of-life care is a true blessing. But it takes people accessing it, talking about it, and learning about it so that it can become a more widespread and understood option. You helped us do that in 2015 and we know that you will continue to do so in the coming year. For that you have our sincere gratitude.
Best wishes for a wonderful 2016!advocacy, awareness, blog, education, end of life, Facebook, fundraising, hospice, Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region, special events, Twitter
