Hospice patients can be referred by their physician when an illness is diagnosed and life expectancy is estimated to be six months or less. Most admissions are for non-cancerous diagnoses such as heart disease, dementia and lung disease. Early hospice care can stabilize the medical condition of the patient, and address other patient, caregiver and family needs.
The top priority of hospice care is to focus on the comfort, dignity and emotional support of the patient, their family and caregivers.
Camp Hope, a service of Hospice of Hope, is a unique, free, multi-day bereavement camp in August for children who have lost a loved one as the result of a death.
The camp is paid for by generous sponsors and businesses. It helps children overcome their loss, and move on with their lives in a constructive, Christian manner. And it lets them have some plain old fun with other children sharing their circumstances.
The camp is staffed by trained adults who understand the children's situations.
