Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you so much for visiting my personal page and considering supporting me. I have been volunteering with Hospice for the past year. I am in awe of the very valuable programs and supports Margaret Bahen Residential Hospice and Doane House Community Hospice provide to those in need at the most difficult time. As an only child I wish these opportunities were available while experiencing my parents' end of life journeys 20 years ago. It would not have been such a lonely time. I want to do my part to ensure others will be supported by the work of these tremendous organizations.
The Hospices need to raise approximately $850,000 annually to ensure the residents and clients are able to access all that hospice can give, at no cost to them. This support starts from diagnosis of a life threatening illness, by supporting with wellness and mindful programs. Walking along side an individual and their family as they navigate the system and commence treatments, then for many, the staff are able to say goodbye, as the individual goes into remission, and back to a new normal. Caregiver support is such an impotrtant piece as they are on that journey with their loved one and also need a kind ear to listen to their fears and hopes. With having a residential hospice now, they are able to offer the full continum of care, and have that safe place for someone coming to end of life to be, if home isn't an option. Anticipatory grief and bereavement is offered through different modalities to support the families and friends when a death occurs, whether a sudden death, traumatic death or by illness. This is why I am helping to support our community hospices, they do an awesome job, and we are all going to need some of this support at one time or another.
I have committed to developing a meditation practice as my activity. I've always wanted to make meditation and mindfulness part of my day to day life. I am inspired to do so in support of these very valuable organizations.
A heartfelt thanks for your time and your support.
