November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to honor everyone in our community who offers the highest level of medical and emotional care to those facing terminal illness. From doctors and nurses, to social workers, clergy members and volunteers, hospice and palliative care brings quality and comfort to families facing difficult end-of-life situations. This month, and every month, say “thank you” to those in our community who represent the compassion, the excellence, the love that is hospice care.
Coping with a terminal illness can be overwhelming—most people don’t know where to turn for help. Fortunately, medical care that provides patients and their families with comfort, compassion, and dignity at the end of life is available. Wright County Hospice services all of Wright County and surrounding areas. We encourage you to learn about the choices you have when faced with a life-limiting illness. For more information about hospice care or to become a volunteer call Hospice for Wright County at 515-532-3461.
