November is National Hospice & Palliative Care Month, a time to highlight the work and value of hospice care in our nation and It’s about how you live and living life to the fullest. In 2018, United Hospice of Rockland will celebrate its 30th anniversary of providing care, comfort and improved quality of life to thousands of your friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family members. We still struggle to reach people early enough in their disease trajectory. Half of those we serve receive care for ten days or less. This prevents them from receiving the full benefit of services that we provide.
In honor of Hospice Awareness Social Media Day on Friday, November 4th, we have a request. If you have had a hospice experience, please go to our Facebook and/or Twitter pages and tell others about the experience that you had. If you know someone who might benefit from hospice services and you are not sure how to raise it, ask one of two questions. Have you thought about calling hospice or can I call hospice for you as they might be able to help? They will be grateful that you asked.
For more information about sharing your Hospice story, please contact Donna Branca, Director of Marketing & PR at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 845.634.4974.
