Celebrating National Hospice Month in Novebmer


Join Hospice of Southern Illinois in their celebration in November of National Hospice Month. During National Hospice Month, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and Hospice of Southern Illinois encourage others to emphasize the importance of quality end-of-life care for all Americans, regardless of age, diagnoses or location of care.

Hospice of Southern Illinois started off the month with Dashin’ for Compassion 5K Run/Walk to spread awareness about National Hospice Month. It was a great turnout and we reached out to over 100 people! Throughout the month of November we are reaching out to almost 1000 Facebook Fans by posting a hospice trivia question on Friday’s in November. The first Facebook Fan to answer correctly wins a $10 gift card! Furthermore, our community education team is visiting doctor offices, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted livings to explain the importance of educating patients on end-of-life care now before crisis strikes, for peace of mind later.
Hospice of Southern Illinois strongly advocates sharing materials, resources, and information, reaching out to the community through social media, print media, and community events, and educating everyone who may need, now or in their future, hospice services. Hospice services include specialized, pain management for patient care and grief support for patients and families. With the help of hospice, patients and families can focus on what our primary focus is, improving the quality of life and living each day to the fullest.
