Sharing the Heart of Hospice

Death and dying are hard.
Losing someone we love is one of the most difficult things we go through.
As a community, we do this together.

The Hospice Palliative Care Society knows this intimately and has worked hard over the last 35 years to bring care and compassion to those at the end of life and their families. Through the expert hospice care provided in our Rotary Hospice House, we give our community a place to transition with family and friends around. Our community programs support those along the trajectory of illness, form caregiver support, patient support groups, and various grief and bereavement programs. PGHPCS connects thousands of people annually to wrap our support around them during difficult times.

As the community relies on Hospice to provide care, we, in turn, rely on the community to provide the funds needed to maintain our services and grow to meet our community’s needs. Being a small not-for-profit has allowed us to be true to our mission and continue to offer unparalleled care despite the cost. However, it requires a commitment from donors like you to help us maintain this level of care and quality.

Through our work in the Rotary Hospice House, we have identified a need to expand our services so that people can fulfill their desires of where they choose to die. Hospice at Home is a new program that will bring our expert hospice care into our community’s home for those who choose to die at home with family. This program is non-funded, and we are seeking financial support to care for people in the comfort of their own homes.

Just like wildflowers in a field…
each person’s journey through loss is unique
