“Words can not adequately express my appreciation to Pike County Hospice for helping with the care of my mother… Treatment was unsuccessful and the cancer had spread… Hospice was the extending hand of God’s Grace, giving us just what we need when we needed it. Whether it was nursing care, counsel, emotional support – they were there at a beckon call. I truly do not know how I made it through those weeks without the help of hospice…I commend your staff for their professionalism, but more importantly, to a family who might be facing a similar experience, Hospice loves and cares and they are there for you.” – K.A.
Anna Wilson, our Hospice Social Worker writes about our hospice program. This year we celebrate 25 years being your only local, not-for-profit hospice provider!

COLORING FOR A CAUSE Less than 24 hours ago, I had a brief discussion on an idea with some of our Hospice Staff, Anna Wilson-Social Worker, and Amy Becker-Hospice Coordinator. This idea was to get the children and the community involved in helping us brighten the days of our Home Health & Hospice patients. Who doesn’t LOVE a gift from a child??? Whether you have a group or organization willing to participate, or your kids at home just want to donate their evening/before dinner artwork…. Send them our way, help us enlighten a patients day! All ages are encouraged to participate! Please feel free to share, contact me with any questions you may have! :) – Tracy Brookshier Download the flyer here: Coloring for a Cause (2.14.18)
