To the Editor:
During the month of November, the medical profession recognizes National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Iowa Hospice, serving Webster, Wright, Humboldt and Hamilton counties, would like to take this opportunity to salute the very special people who work in this field.
Hospice provides a unique blend of clinical, social and spiritual support services for patients and their families. This care adds quality and dignity to the lives of patients facing end-of-life illnesses. The support provided to families allows them to focus on spending quality time with their loved one rather than on care-giving details during this difficult time. Hospice is also there to support the family after their loss.
On behalf of Iowa Hospice, a Harden Healthcare company, we would like to say thank you to hospice caregivers for the important work that they do each and every day.
