HOSPICE HEART STORIES
Celebrating the gift of time
As a family we attended a treatment and follow up with one of Mom’s doctors. During this follow up he confirmed the treatments were unnecessary, there was nothing further he could do and asked us to begin preparing for end of life. At that moment he offered to call Chatham hospice to arrange a tour. We graciously accepted, wiped our tears, immediately left the hospital and drove to hospice.
This moment was a turning point for all of us.
What Your Donations Are Used For:
The chart below gives you an idea of the other expenses we must cover from fundraising revenue.
Resident care is our top priority. Your donation will help cover the cost of things like personal care products, medical equipment and supplies.
Connected and Comfortable
Your donation will help keep our residents and their families comfortable and connected by covering the cost of utilities such as natural gas, electricity, water, cable and telephone.
Making our residents and their families feel at home is a top priority. Your donation will help pay for groceries as well as kitchen equipment and supplies.
Education and Awareness
Ongoing education and awareness will ensure the sustainability of our residential hospice. Your donation will support ongoing staff & volunteer education and training, community education and efficient donation management.
Business as usual
Although we want our hospice to feel like home to our residents, we must operate as a business. Your donation will cover costs associated with running a business such as accounting, human resources, purchasing, office equipment and supplies and insurance.
Like your home, we want to keep a safe and tidy home. Your donation will help us do that by covering costs for laundry & housekeeping, ongoing maintenance, safety and security.
