We provide financial grants for general monthly living expenses (i.e., groceries, utility bills, electronic pill dispensers, rent, emergency clothing, small household/kitchen, to hospice patients and families. Medicare does not cover these expenses.

We want to share with you some examples of the much needed relief that your thoughtful and generous donations has provided for less fortunate families who not are only facing financial strain due to loss of income, but obviously insurmountable grief at the impending loss of their loved one.
With the help of your donations we have been able to support many needy hospice patients and their families through our Special Needs Fund this past year and 1/2. We saw a greater need for grocery shopping cards as well as an increase in the need for rental assistance and utilities. The special needs varied from lightweight cooling blankets to robotic pets specifically for the Alzheimer's patient.
Each one of these items listed above has a person and a very personal story attached to it. These are only a few of the ways that you have helped us provide financial assistance to hospice patients and their families, and truly make the quality of life better for them. The full list of needs we supported goes beyond those needs listed above. We want you to know how grateful we are for your financial support in the past and your continued support in the future. All of us at the Hospice Foundation thank you for making the work we do, possible.
