-- Does your loved one need assistance with daily activities – like dressing, eating, or bathing? Do they suffer from shortness of breath or frequent infections, pain or other chronic symptoms? Are they going to the hospital or calling their doctor frequently?
The team at Golden Orchards would like you to take the opportunity to learn about the benefits of hospice and palliative care. Recent research has demonstrated that comfort support increases quality of life and can assist people in living longer.
On March 29th at 5:30 pm at Golden Orchards, 2464 55th St., Fennville, Terri Dotson, Hospice at Home Community Relations Representative, will be available to share the benefits of hospice and palliative care and answer questions. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided for this free fireside chat.
Hospice at Home is the non-profit community hospice focusing on the patient and family regardless of the patients' diagnosis, treatment choices, or ability to pay. It provides quality care to people adjusting to living with a serious illness, as well as to people facing death, anticipating the death of a loved one, or healing their grief after the death of a loved one. Hospice at Home places an emphasis on the emotional, social, and spiritual needs of those who need care and those receiving support services in Berrien, Cass, Van Buren, and Allegan Counties.
If you are interested in more information, please call Terri Dotson at Hospice at Home, (269) 637-3825 or toll free at (800) HOSPICE; or go to www.hospiceathomecares.org.
