In our lifetime we all lose family and friends to illness or accidents. This is a traumatic experience for all of us. But if you have been blessed to have hospice help you and your loved ones through this time with compassion and knowledge of what comes next, then you know how important their mission is.
We have a simple mission: to give support to NorthCare Hospice by providing comfort and nourishment to the families of the hospice patients.
While this is not giving direct care to the patients themselves, the families will need support in many ways. There is comfort in knowing they are not alone. If we can make this experience less difficult with a quick simple snack or a warm home cooked meal allowing that family member to stay by their loved one's bedside. Just knowing there is someone thinking of them could possibly take away some of their burden.
