“In this season of thanks and giving and love, let’s remember those whose presence is missed, love those who are still among us, and be thankful for happy memories past, present and future.” It is in this spirit that more than 100 people attended the RiverStone Health Hospice Tree of Lights celebration on Dec. 4 on RiverStone Health’s campus. And it is in this spirit that hundreds of people from our community and all over the country have donated and continue to donate in support of RiverStone Health Hospice’s compassionate care.
As the community’s first and only accredited Hospice program, RiverStone Health Hospice Services does not turn anyone away because of an inability to pay. Patient-centered care is provided to anyone who needs it, within an individual’s home, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities or in two of RSHHS’ inpatient community-based homes. Last year alone RSHHS served 409 patients, 70 of whom received financial assistance through RiverStone Health’s sliding fee discounts. While RSHHS receives funding from several sources (Medicare, Medicaid, third party insurance, and fees paid by patients), donations are critical to meet the continued need for high quality end-of-life care.
Thank you to each and every person who continues to support RiverStone Health Hospice. Your gifts mean a great deal to our patients, their families, friends and caregivers.
