$2,000 Nursing Scholarship Deadline Fast Approaching

Our Home Care & Hospice Foundation of Pike County’s Nursing Scholarship Application is available every January, and will award one $2,000 nursing scholarship this year to a student or adult pursuing a nursing career. The Home Care & Hospice Foundation knows that our amazing nurses are the backbone of Pike County Hospice, and they want to entice more compassionate individuals to pursue nursing and help change the lives of our community members. It’s a very rewarding career, both monetarily and emotionally. Making a difference in people’s lives and making them smile is not something that you can achieve in any career. As a nurse, you’ll make a huge difference in people’s lives. A caring and compassionate nurse is considered as a guardian angel by patients. This can be a very satisfying and gratifying career for the compassionate.

The deadline for the 2022 Scholarship application is April 15th, 2022

Mobile Veteran Center coming to PCHD

Pike County Health Department Home Health & Hospice and the Columbia Vet Center are teaming up to bring help directly to veterans.  The Mobile Vet Center or MVC, a 37-foot-long vehicle, will be in the PCHD parking lot on Thursday, June 24th from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.  This partnership makes it an easy way to bring help to veterans who don’t live close to an office where help is readily available.

“We are a rural community that does not have these services available locally, so the Mobile Vet Center being able to visit our community and provide that same level of service to our local veterans is a wonderful to have.” Said Tracy Brookshier, Marketing Coordinator for PCHD.

Veterans can stop at the Mobile Center for information about veteran benefits, free dog tags, counseling for bereavement, marriage or family. As well as Suicide prevention referrals and much more.
