November is National Hospice Month
To the Editor,
Serving as a Hospice of Lenawee volunteer is truly a privilege and rewarding experience. Hospice provides care wherever the patient wishes. This may be the patient’s home, a nursing home, assisted living or hospital.
Hospice of Lenawee also operates the beautiful Hospice Home, where patients reside.
Individuals experiencing advanced illnesses may live out the end of their lives as they choose, comfortably and with dignity under the care of Hospice. Dealing with the end of life is always difficult.
However, Hospice teams provide exceptional care for individuals in their challenging journeys by enriching the quality of life for the patients as well as their families. Seeing families and friends enjoying their loved ones rather than being burdened with their total care is especially gratifying. Social workers offer guidance to patients and bereavement services are available for emotional support for any Lenawee County residents who have experienced a loss.
November is National Hospice Month. We are blessed to have Hospice of Lenawee in our county.
