Letters to the Editor 11/2/13

In support of Hospice

To the Editor: Death and dying are unfortunately a part of life that we all must face at some point. I am writing to increase awareness of an indispensable resource that is available in our community. Hand in Hand Hospice is a locally owned and operated company that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all people coping with a terminal illness.

November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care available to them through hospice.

One of the most important messages that people need to realize is that hospice care is there to help patients and families alike focus on living. The hospice team provides expert medical care to keep patients comfortable and enjoy time with their loved ones. We are here 24/7 to answer questions, offer advice and help families adjust to the duties of being a caregiver. We provide continual spiritual and emotional support for all involved.

Hospice is covered 100 percent by Medicare and Medicaid. Some private insurances cover hospice services as well. We provide quality care in the home, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and long term care centers.

Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with terminal illness. Our professional staff and trained volunteers will concentrate on what's important to you in your time of need, and your wishes are our priority.

If you or a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, the time to ask about hospice is now.

    Now that the holidays for 2013 are behind us and we’ve had a brief moment to reflect back on all that has transpired, I can say that we at The Salvation Army are humbled and amazed by how this community came together to help meet the needs of so many struggling people.

    As a volunteer with the Angels of Corsicana Troop Support, most of my time all year is spent on items, especially Christmas cards, to fill the stockings when we pack in December.
