Kids Camp – Optimal Hospice Foundation #hospice #volunteer #work

#optimal hospice

#

The loss of a loved one touches each member of the family, including children. To help young people through their bereavement, Optimal Hospice Foundation created Kids Camp. This over-night summer camp program is specially designed for young people ages 8 – 16 that have experienced the loss of an loved one in the recent past.

At Kids Camp, young people enjoy traditional camping activities, such as swimming and hiking, in an atmosphere where both staff and fellow campers understand their special needs. Kids Camp is held in the Bakersfield, Fresno, and Northern California (LIvermore) areas and is open to the community – attendees loved one did not have to utilize hospice services. The Fresno Camp is held in mid July, Bakersfield in early August and NORCAL in mid August.

Optimal Hospice Foundation would like to recognize The Taylor Family Foundation for hosting our NORCAL Kids Camp held at The Taylor Family Foundation at Camp Arroyo in 2015 and again in 2016. The Taylor Family Foundation’s mission is to preserve the wellness and enhance the quality of life for children in Northern California with life-threatening and chronic illnesses, disabilities and youth at-risk through unique therapeutic experiences and support. For more information, please visit www.ttff.org. ion, please visit www.ttff.org.

This innovative experience is available at no cost to families, thanks to generous support from the community. Camp participants may be referred by school counselors, healthcare providers, family members and other individuals.

Click on the Kids Camp link below for a look at what Kids Camp has to offer. Activities vary from camp to camp based on the facility, however the essence and message is the same. The video was made possible via a grant from the Kern Community Foundation.

Carpenter Hospice, a dedicated team of angels in disguise – Burlington Community

Carpenter Hospice, a dedicated team of angels in disguise

In times of sickness and health, it becomes very apparent how important access to proper care and services is to those in need. During the suffering of our loved ones, we expect to be able to provide only the very best in comfort, compassion and care. Sometimes, we alone are unable to provide this without some form of support. The Carpenter Hospice is that beacon of light in a storm of uncertainty, to help families in need to care for their family and friends at end of life.

Carpenter Hospice provides palliative care and support for its residents through its services and dedicated team. There are 10 private rooms for residents with nursing and personal support workers available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It has a dedicated team, supported by over 100 volunteers assisting in operations, housekeeping, cooking, events, administration and more. All services offered to residents and families in the Burlington area are free of charge. Services included are residential care, wellness programs, music therapy and a bereavement program. Complementary therapies such as Reiki, yoga and therapeutic touch are all available as well. The hospice has helped more than 1,400 residents ranging in age from 21-108 years of age.

Established in 2002, the largest fund held at Burlington Foundation, The Carpenter Hospice Permanent Endowment Fund has been able to provide a source of revenue for the organization annually. Carpenter Hospice trusts the Foundation to invest and retain their endowment fund so the hospice can focus on the work that they do in our community.

Mary Parker, daughter of Frank Horrigan, gives a glimpse of the positive experience her family had in taking care of her father during his final days. Mary explains, “I wanted to give Dad the very best and provide him the level of care every person deserves. The hospice became a sanctuary for my family, a place of peace and tranquility. As we settled into the Hospice the struggles of life fell away. We were able to enjoy each other’s company as a family and took the time to tell Dad how much we loved him. We held on tight to each other and leaned heavily on the staff and volunteers who became our beacons of light in the storm. It is my wish that every family that walks these doors can find such comfort in their final journey to honor the one they love.”

Other families express their positive words of encouragement and support for the Carpenter Hospice staff and volunteers. “The staff and volunteers gave my husband the dignity and respect he deserved. We also met other families that were in similar situations and formed bonds with them. The support our family and friends received was so comforting at a time when we could barely cope. We are so fortunate to have the Carpenter Hospice in our community, to give our families and loved ones such exceptional care. They are our angels.”

Colleen Mulholland, the Foundation’s President and CEO, comments on the vital role the Hospice plays in our community, “Such thoughtful words for the staff and volunteers speaks to unconditional compassion, care and comfort provided at the Carpenter Hospice. Our community is strengthened by organizations like these, who take care of vulnerable individuals and their families during the most difficult times. We are proud to hold their endowment fund.”

    Boone Pickens

    Join the Pickens Plan Army.

    The other day, my team uncovered some videos of the news interviews I had done back in the 1980s. Those were heady times. It was the start of the corporate takeover and shareholder rights era, and I was not just in the thick of it, I was driving it. And communicating clearly and effectively was critical to our success.

    Strong communication has always been my core asset. I’ve always believed you can trace every problem to a lack of communication or lack of clarity in communication.

    These days, I sometimes find myself literally at a loss for words. Over the Christmas holiday, I had several strokes. But with a little determination and some aggressive speech therapy, I regained 90 percent of my speech.

    However, last week, I had a Texas-sized fall — one that required hospitalization. I am still mentally strong, and I comprehend and process information like I did before the incident. It’s just a little hard to find the words I m looking for to speak clearly. Speech therapy will fix that, I’m confident.

    Just as I exercise my body daily I will exercise my brain and continue with rigorous speech therapy to regain what I can. I am always up for a good challenge.

    Nine years ago today, we launched the Pickens Plan. We knew we had a great idea, and people across the country agreed. We d held focus groups and found that Americans knew about the problem, but saw that the country lacked an energy plan. They were hungry for something that would work, a specific energy plan that included a little bit of everything solar, wind, and natural gas.

    For the final podcast on the history of the Pickens Plan, I talk with Peter McCollum and Jason Huntsberry. Although they referred to themselves as little cogs in a big machine, they were a major part of the tight-knit team that makes the Pickens Plan tick.

    Last month I turned 89 years old, mindful of the fact I’m now 24 years beyond traditional retirement age. My post-65 era has included the most productive years of my life. I was 68 when I left Mesa Petroleum. I turned out the lights at 6 p.m. my last day in the office, as I Continue reading The Old Man Makes a Comeback

    Washington, D.C. is as divided as it has ever been, and it has become difficult to set politics aside and get things done. But fortunately the Pickens Plan benefited from a bipartisan team that came together to promote a plan that has our nation’s best interests in mind.

    For the latest episode of the Pickens Podcast, I sat down with Rich Galen, a columnist and former press secretary for U.S. Senators Dan Quayle (R-IN) and Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX), and Amy Weiss, former White House Deputy Press Secretary to President Bill Clinton and press secretary and campaign manager for U.S. Rep Mike Synar (D-OK). These two have reached across the aisle to help make the Pickens Plan work. It just goes to show how successful you can be when you can look past personal politics to focus on a mission.

    Without question, America is a nation committed to environmental leadership. All you have to do is look at how much cleaner our country has gotten over the last 10 years through the expanded use of natural gas. But the Paris Climate Accord is another bad deal negotiated by the Obama Administration, and America should applaud Continue reading T.

    WFAA s Pete Delkus visited my office this morning for a fun conversation to celebrate my 89th birthday.

    Irish Hospice Foundation founder Mary Redmond dies

    Monday 06 April 2015 19.43

    Mary Redmond, founder of the Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF), has died aged 64.

    Dr Redmond founded the IHF almost 30 years ago after being impressed by the quality of care that her father, Dr John Redmond, received in the expert and loving hands of staff at Our Lady s Hospice in Harold s Cross in Dublin.

    Irish Hospice CEO Sharon Foley paid tribute to Dr Redmond, whom she described as an inspirational and visionary leader and one of the founders of the hospice movement in Ireland .

    We are deeply saddened to hear of the news of Dr Redmond s passing. She had foresight, determination and generosity of spirit and we are very proud today to continue with her work, she added.

    Dr Redmond was also a member of the RT Authority.

    In an interview marking the 20th birthday of the IHF in 2006 Dr Redmond said she had no idea when she started the process of setting up the Irish Hospice Foundation that it was going to become so big, and that the work was going to be so challenging.

    Dr Redmond was conferred with a Doctor in Laws (LL.D) from Trinity College in 2014.

    In 1999 she also established the Wheel, a support and representative body connecting community and voluntary organisations and charities across Ireland, which has evolved to become a resource centre and forum for the community and voluntary sector.

    Lessons from My Sister Cathy, Disney and Hospice

    I’ve heard it called “a punch in the stomach”, but for me it was more like a top spinning in my head. How could my beautiful 31-year-old little sister Cathy, a single Mom with three little boys, have a cancer that had a 95% chance of killing her in 3-5 years.

    Why We re the Best

    Experience like no other. Repairing and constructing over 7,000+ foundations. We know homes.

    There are a lot of companies offering foundation repair in the Los Angeles area. How do you know which one is best? We believe experience should be the deciding factor. Julian Construction was formed in 1994, and our focus has always been on building foundations, doing repair, replacement, earthquake retrofitting and house leveling. We have inspected over 16,500 foundations .

    If you also talk to another foundation contractor, ask how long they have been doing foundation repair. Not how long they have been in business. But how long they have been doing foundation work. There are some contractors in the LA area who have been doing foundation work for a year or less. Would you trust the safety of your home to them?

    When the safety of your home and family are at stake, we think you ll want to go with Julian, the company that has been working under homes for nearly 20 years.

    Best value. Our affordability comes from the efficiency of expertise and smooth-running crews. All equipment and vehicles are company owned. Julian Construction also offers 0% financing .

    100% expert oversight. From start to finish, licensed and expert managers oversee all projects, ensuring perfection, timeliness and safety.

    Hospice Foundation of America

    Hospice Foundation of America

    Hospice Foundation of America is a not-for-profit organization that provides leadership in the development and application of hospice and its philosophy of care. Through programs of professional development, research, public education and information, Hospice Foundation of America assists those who cope either personally or professionally with terminal illness, death, and the process of grief.

    Hospice Foundation of America Mission Statement

    Hospice Foundation of America provides leadership in the development and application of hospice and its philosophy of care with the goal of enhancing the U.S. health care system and the role of hospice within it.

    How does the Foundation do its work?

    Hospice Foundation of America is a 501(c)(3) organization and meets its mission by conducting programs of professional development, public education and information, research, publications and health policy issues. Our programs for health care professionals assist those who cope either personally or professionally with terminal illness, death, and the process of grief, and are offered on a national or regional basis. Our programs for the public assist individual consumers of health care who are coping with issues of caregiving, terminal illness, and grief.

    For more information about the Hospice Foundation of America’s educational programs, click here .

    History of Hospice Foundation of America

    Hospice Foundation, Inc. was chartered in 1982 with the purpose of providing fund raising assistance to hospices operating in South Florida so that they could carry on their mission of providing compassionate care to dying patients. This was prior to passage of the Medicare hospice benefit.

    In 1990, with the help of a significant gift from Hospice Care, Inc. the Foundation expanded its scope to a national level in order to provide leadership in the entire spectrum of end-of-life issues. The Foundation board is a distinguished group of health policy experts which guide the Foundation as it explores efforts to:

    • become a center of neutral, creative thinking on end-of-life issues for policy makers and opinion molders,
    • raise the visibility and credibility of hospice in general, and
    • become an advocate for those principles of hospice which may enhance the medical system in general.

    To more accurately reflect its national scope, in 1992 the Foundation opened a Washington, D.C. office for its policy and program work, and in 1994 the Board changed the name of Hospice Foundation, Inc. to Hospice Foundation of America.

    Frisco Foundation Repair

    Did you know that your Frisco home or business is built on a sponge? From northern Texas to Oklahoma, a zone of clay soil stretches across the landscape, absorbing water and expanding when it s wet, and shrinking and hardening when it s dry. This cycle of expansion and contraction can wreak havoc on Frisco foundations.

    Foundation Damage Warning Signs

    Frisco foundations tend to shift and settle, thanks to the sponge-like clay soil underneath. Tell-tale signs of foundation damage include:

    Pier and Beam Foundation Repair

    Fortunately, pier and beam foundation repair is typically pretty easy, fast and affordable. This doesn t mean that it s a good DIY project for most homeowners, however. To ensure a long-lasting solution, you have to have some experience, plus you need specialized equipment to get the job done right.

    Even though it might be tempting to attempt a DIY project, but let s be honest about one thing: house leveling with low-quality block piers and jacks simply doesn t provide a stable foundation for your home. The issue will reappear much more quickly than you probably think; and you ll be back at square one all over again.

    Here’s an entertaining, short video of guy attempting a “quick-fix” on his house; while at the same time, cooking his dinner!

    At Foundation Repair Pros. we have seen just about everything over our many years of experience. Since we are industry leading foundation repair experts here in San Antonio. we know exactly what goes into determining how and where the post and beam foundation is failing. We also know the most economical yet effective solutions to these issues.

    What are the Symptoms of Pier and Beam Foundation Failure?

    There are actually quite a few clues that show that your home s foundation has some issues. Your foundation is designed to fully support the entire weight of your home and to transfer and distribute that weight evenly throughout the piers, beams and bedrock or its equivalent. Here are some of the more common clues that you can look for:

    -Issues with your wooden floors, such as sinking, sagging, softness or bounciness
    -Floors that are starting to bow
    -Gaps that can be found between the interior walls and the floor
    -Cracks that can be found in the sheetrock walls in the interior of your home
    -Door frames that are out of level or that won t shut or stick
    -The presence of mold. fungus, termites or wood rot
    -Compression of the joists in the floor
    -Shimming between the beams and piers, such as if repair has already been attempted

    Although it isn t necessarily a bad thing if there is the presence of shimming in your home, it does depend on the material that was used. Some shadier contractors or do-it-yourself previous homeowners use pieces of sheetrock, scrap wood, soft wood or even cardboard, but these are obviously not the appropriate materials to use when repairing the foundation of a house.

    What are the Two Main Causes of Pier and Beam Structural Issues?

    1. Moisture
    Since dirt crawl spaces are damp and dark, they serve as magnets for un-pleasantries like termites, mold, fungus and more. These vented crawl spaces can also become incredibly humid, especially during the summer. Plumbing leaks, leaks in your HVAC duct work and other similar issues can also cause excess moisture vapor. Once this excess moisture is present, however, it can become a breeding ground for all of these problems and more. This can dramatically weaken the piers, joists and girders.

    2. Lack of Correct Design for Pier and Beam Locations
    Proper placement of the columns and is a crucial part of a pier and beam installation that is designed to last. In many homes, especially those that are older, we often see piers that are spaced way too far apart. This can cause the girders and beams to become overworked and overstressed, which can cause sags and even significant cracks. Undersized joists and girders (small width) can also cause this problem. If your home has a second story, this problem can be even more serious due to excess weight and pressure on your home.

    Fixing Your Pier and Beam Foundation
    We offer multiple solutions to fix your foundation-related problems. Our solutions are the most cost-effective available and are designed to stand strong through the test of time. Here are a few options that we might suggest for repairing your issues:

    The correction of all water-related issues, such as drainage problems and leaks
    -The installation of new piers with a concrete pad base and supports of either block or steel.
    -Leveling of girders and joists with the use of heavy-duty SmartJacks
    -Solving mold-related issues, then sistering fresh lumber as a means of repairing damaged joists and girders
    Using either wood or steel I-beams as a means of retrofitting beams that are broken or rotten
    -Using strong steel shims for re-shimming
    -Dehumidifying the crawl space area

    The extent of the foundation damage to your home, the causes of your foundation-related issues and your budget will have an impact on the solution that we choose for you. We will use our expertise to choose a customized solution that is perfect for your needs. Luckily, the costs that are associated with repairing a pier and beam foundation is generally much more affordable than what homeowners with slab foundations have to pay; this is due to the fact that access to the area is easier and there is a lower cost in materials and equipment.

    We offer a free inspection with absolutely no obligation. At Foundation Repair Pros. we can help you determine the sources of your issues and will provide you with the most affordable, effective and permanent fixes out there. See our cost of foundation repair page.

    Workforce Development

    Welding makes a profound impact on our daily lives. From the cars we drive to the houses we live in, the welding industry is constantly shaping our world. Welding also makes an impact on our nation s economy. Half of our total gross national product is comprised of welding related labor, products, and services.

    The welding industry offers a wide variety of dynamic and challenging careers. Underwater welders are needed on offshore oil rigs. Welder-operators use automated welding systems to manufacture cars. Structural welders help to construct skyscrapers and bridges. In addition to welders, other professionals such as certified inspectors and engineers rely on welding to do their jobs. Without these professionals, our country would fall apart.

    The demand for skilled welding professionals is constantly growing. By 2025, our nation s workforce will need over 400,000 welders to satisfy the demands of several industries. To help fill this need, the AWS Foundation is doing its part to promote the industry and build a skilled workforce. Our career resources and scholarships help students to learn about the vast number of opportunities our industry has to offer. Our Careers in Welding mobile exhibit also provides students with an interactive learning experience which will spark their interest in welding.

    Programs + Results

    Transitions works with men and women who are struggling with a life-limiting illness and have a prognosis of 12 months or less. They don’t yet qualify for hospice, but they desperately need helnext steps, available community resources, and inevitable life changes.

    It is available free of charge, and many of our clients would have nowhere else to turn without it. It’s a lifeline during what is probably the scariest time in their lives. And it’s the only program of its kind in King County.

    Program long term success

    Because of the support and guidance clients receive from Transisitons, unnecessary hospitalizations are reduced, medical care is better coordinated so clients are visiting the emergency room only for true emergencies, individuals have more control over how they live out the remainder of their lives, and they have timelier access to end-of-life services (because they have a better understanding of what’s available to them).

    Program success monitored by

    Satisfaction surveys are mailed to clients and families quarterly. The results are compiled and used to identify current strengths and areas that could be improved. Results from the last two surveys were extremely positive. In fact, over 90 percent would recommend Transitions to others.

    Program success examples

    The incredible impact of Transitions on the lives of those we serve can be difficult to convey. But when the words are coming directly from a client, there is no doubt that this program is a lifeline for so many people.
    One of our clients is Dave. He lives in Auburn and was diagnosed with ALS three years ago. He’s been getting help fromTransitions for 5 months now.

    Dave’s health is gradually declining, and although he’s been able to remain in his home, he’s no longer able to move around without a walker, his ability to swallow is declining, and he requires oxygen in order to breath.

    He can’t say enough about how much the program has helped him. Over and over he says things such as, “I don’t know what I’d do without you guys,” and “Without Transitions, I’d be a mess, a real big mess.”

    Dave is 60 years old, he’s a Vietnam veteran, and he lives alone. One of the most valuable aspects of Transitions for Dave has been his nurse, Gail. She’s always there when he has a problem—just a phone call away. Just to have someone he can call if he’s in pain and not sure what’s going on is incredibly comforting.

    He can call Gail, and she calls his doctor and helps get the problem resolved quickly. Where as, if he called his doctor himself, it might take a couple days to get the problem resolved. Gail is able to navigate the system much more effectively.

    Whether it’s Gail, a social worker, or a chaplain, someone from Transitions comes to see Dave at least once a week.

    Without Transitions, Dave said he’d have to go into a nursing home, and he doesn’t want that to happen. He wants to remain at home as long as he can. That’s how important our program has been for him.

    Dave has very little money. What he does have has been strained by drug costs (“It’s very expensive to be sick,” he said). So he’s extremely grateful that Transitions is free. Otherwise, it would be inaccessible to him.

    For Dave, Transitions is truly a lifeline.

    Providence Hospice of Seattle serves King and South Snohomish Counties. Serves the greater Seattle-area and its suburbs.

    The foundation funds the these five programs in full or in part: Transtions, Safe Crossings (including Camp Erin-King County), Stepping Stones, Complementary Therapy and Patient Special Needs. These programs will cost $930,000 in 2011 and serve over 2,000 children and adults.

    STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

    “Last year, more people than ever received thoughtful guidance, felt the healing touch and heard gentle words and sounds of love and encouragement through the caregivers of Providence Hospice of Seattle.
    Fortunately, we were able to respond to this growing need in our community for hospice care and end-of-life services.

    But the need for our services continues to grow — especially in the areas of pediatric hospice and palliative care. And while the need is growing, there is increasing uncertainty abut state funding for some of our programs.

    But with the continued help from our community, we will meet these needs.”

    Grants

    Funding Request Guidelines

    The mission of the Foundation is to create funding for education and assistance of Home Health and Hospice patients and their families. In pursuit of this mission, the Foundation raises funds for distribution to home health and hospice care organizations (we do not give grants to individuals) to help cover the costs of equipment, programs and uncompensated care for patients. We measure our success by our ability to raise and effectively distribute these funds.

    The majority of the Visiting Nurse’s Foundation income comes from Foundation businesses. A portion of that income pays 100% of administrative expenses and the salaries of a minimal staff. The services of many hard working volunteers enables the remainder and 100% of all fund raisers, donations and memorials to go to benefit home health and hospice patients. The Foundation has a dedicated staff and active, all volunteer board, that works to increase funding to help meet a vital community need.

    We are a unique partnership of donors and home healthcare providers, working together to insure that home health and hospice patients will not be denied medical care because of their inability to pay for those services. This relationship is based upon mutual respect and understanding.

    The need to maintain a high level of accountability for contributed funds is basic to the partnership. As a condition of accepting funds, the agency in question should include in a year-end report, the number of unduplicated clients served with the funding, and the type of service(s) provided by the funds. They will provide at least three client stories that are representative of the patients helped by funds provided by the Foundation. Patients and communities benefiting from assistance given by the Foundation will be aware of this assistance.

    We are aware the need for home health and hospice care, and the equipment and programs to support this care has increased dramatically over the last several years and that there has been an even greater increase in the number of patients who need and want the comfort and healing benefits of that care, but cannot afford it. The Foundation is committed to help home health and hospice care providers in their efforts to serve residents in need of care, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.

    #help the hospice

    #

    Since 2008, Hospice Help Foundation has been providing assistance to hospice patients and their families with dire financial need in an effort to ease the burdens that can accompany a terminal diagnosis.

    The Foundation grants last wishes to patients and supports the wishes of families for loved ones. We provide assistance for services not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance.

    Our support can make all the difference in the world to someone. Many struggling patients and families empty their bank accounts to fight a terminal illness, and are left with no financial resources in their final days. The financial and emotional strain at end of life is enormous for people in this situation.

    Hospice Help Foundation steps in where insurance and other support falls short, to help patients and families by providing funds for critical items that bring comfort and dignity at end of life.

    Examples of how we help include:

    • Providing rent, utilities, and food, enabling hospice patients to remain at home for their final days
    • Paying veterinary bills to keep patients and their pets together
    • Funding ramps, wheelchairs, and scooters, so that people can remain mobile for as long as possible
    • Paying travel fees to bring family members together at the end of life
    • Making last wishes become a reality
    • Funding household purchases and repairs that raise the quality of life for a hospice patient
    • Covering after death expenses for people with the most extreme need who would otherwise not have a dignified burial or cremation

    Your donation truly makes a difference for patients in need. Thank you for ensuring that we continue to provide the critical assistance that is not otherwise available to those in need at the end of their lives. Together, we are making our communities a better place to live and a more caring and compassionate place to die.

    The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!

    However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite

    When a home foundation is damaged, things can look much worse than they actually are. In that light, it may seem like the foundation is beyond repair. Instead, the solution is to demolish the old foundation and build a new one in its place. While we agree that it’s wise to take every foundation problem seriously, it’s important to bear in mind that most foundation issues have simple, permanent repair solutions.

    Replacing your foundation is an expensive, time-consuming process that doesn’t really address the original source of your foundation issues, which is the soils around your home. Foundations old and new can experience damage from expansive soils. settlement, frost, and other forces. That’s why we at Pier King Foundation Repair prefer to address these problems on your existing foundation with warranted, permanent solutions.

    Carpenter Hospice, a dedicated team of angels in disguise

    In times of sickness and health, it becomes very apparent how important access to proper care and services is to those in need. During the suffering of our loved ones, we expect to be able to provide only the very best in comfort, compassion and care. Sometimes, we alone are unable to provide this without some form of support. The Carpenter Hospice is that beacon of light in a storm of uncertainty, to help families in need to care for their family and friends at end of life.

    Carpenter Hospice provides palliative care and support for its residents through its services and dedicated team. There are 10 private rooms for residents with nursing and personal support workers available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It has a dedicated team, supported by over 100 volunteers assisting in operations, housekeeping, cooking, events, administration and more. All services offered to residents and families in the Burlington area are free of charge. Services included are residential care, wellness programs, music therapy and a bereavement program. Complementary therapies such as Reiki, yoga and therapeutic touch are all available as well. The hospice has helped more than 1,400 residents ranging in age from 21-108 years of age.

    Established in 2002, the largest fund held at Burlington Foundation, The Carpenter Hospice Permanent Endowment Fund has been able to provide a source of revenue for the organization annually. Carpenter Hospice trusts the Foundation to invest and retain their endowment fund so the hospice can focus on the work that they do in our community.

    Mary Parker, daughter of Frank Horrigan, gives a glimpse of the positive experience her family had in taking care of her father during his final days. Mary explains, “I wanted to give Dad the very best and provide him the level of care every person deserves. The hospice became a sanctuary for my family, a place of peace and tranquility. As we settled into the Hospice the struggles of life fell away. We were able to enjoy each other’s company as a family and took the time to tell Dad how much we loved him. We held on tight to each other and leaned heavily on the staff and volunteers who became our beacons of light in the storm. It is my wish that every family that walks these doors can find such comfort in their final journey to honor the one they love.”

    Other families express their positive words of encouragement and support for the Carpenter Hospice staff and volunteers. “The staff and volunteers gave my husband the dignity and respect he deserved. We also met other families that were in similar situations and formed bonds with them. The support our family and friends received was so comforting at a time when we could barely cope. We are so fortunate to have the Carpenter Hospice in our community, to give our families and loved ones such exceptional care. They are our angels.”

    Colleen Mulholland, the Foundation’s President and CEO, comments on the vital role the Hospice plays in our community, “Such thoughtful words for the staff and volunteers speaks to unconditional compassion, care and comfort provided at the Carpenter Hospice. Our community is strengthened by organizations like these, who take care of vulnerable individuals and their families during the most difficult times. We are proud to hold their endowment fund.”

    Supportive Care

    Supportive Care
    Supportive care, sometimes referred to as palliative care, is specialized, whole-person care in which the main goal is relief of symptoms and suffering. Palliative care services can be provided at the same time as care that is focused on cure.

    Supportive care often is administered in parallel with active treatment by a team specifically trained to provide the services described above. There now is a medical specialty in Hospice and Palliative Medicine with an increasing number of board-certified physicians available to offer these services. In addition to physicians, the supportive care team may consist of nurses, social workers, chaplains, massage therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists and others.

    It is important to understand the difference between supportive, or palliative care, and hospice care. Supportive, or palliative, care may begin at any time during the patient’s illness and is provided in addition to life-prolonging care. The patient does not have to choose between life-prolonging care and palliative care. Hospice care is a specific type of palliative care for patients at the end of their life, usually meaning a life expectancy of six months or less.

    The following references are offered to allow you to learn more about supportive, or palliative, care.

    After surviving cancer, women look for a community of support and guidance. In a video produced by the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, survivors share how they live and thrive after endometrial cancer. As described by one survivor, “You can get better.”

    The Foundation is featured in the Sept. issues of Coping. Women and Family Circle magazines. Look out for our articles ads!

    Irish Hospice Foundation founder Mary Redmond dies

    Monday 06 April 2015 19.43

    Mary Redmond, founder of the Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF), has died aged 64.

    Dr Redmond founded the IHF almost 30 years ago after being impressed by the quality of care that her father, Dr John Redmond, received in the expert and loving hands of staff at Our Lady s Hospice in Harold s Cross in Dublin.

    Irish Hospice CEO Sharon Foley paid tribute to Dr Redmond, whom she described as an inspirational and visionary leader and one of the founders of the hospice movement in Ireland .

    We are deeply saddened to hear of the news of Dr Redmond s passing. She had foresight, determination and generosity of spirit and we are very proud today to continue with her work, she added.

    Dr Redmond was also a member of the RT Authority.

    In an interview marking the 20th birthday of the IHF in 2006 Dr Redmond said she had no idea when she started the process of setting up the Irish Hospice Foundation that it was going to become so big, and that the work was going to be so challenging.

    Dr Redmond was conferred with a Doctor in Laws (LL.D) from Trinity College in 2014.

    In 1999 she also established the Wheel, a support and representative body connecting community and voluntary organisations and charities across Ireland, which has evolved to become a resource centre and forum for the community and voluntary sector.

    History of Hospice Foundation of America

    Hospice Foundation, Inc. was chartered in 1982 with the purpose of providing fund raising assistance to hospices operating in South Florida so that they could carry on their mission of providing compassionate care to dying patients. This was prior to passage of the Medicare hospice benefit.

    In 1990, with the help of a significant gift from Hospice Care, Inc. the Foundation expanded its scope to a national level in order to provide leadership in the entire spectrum of end-of-life issues. The Foundation board is a distinguished group of health policy experts which guide the Foundation as it explores efforts to:

    • become a center of neutral, creative thinking on end-of-life issues for policy makers and opinion molders,
    • raise the visibility and credibility of hospice in general, and
    • become an advocate for those principles of hospice which may enhance the medical system in general.

    To more accurately reflect its national scope, in 1992 the Foundation opened a Washington, D.C. office for its policy and program work, and in 1994 the Board changed the name of Hospice Foundation, Inc. to Hospice Foundation of America.

    We cannot stress enough that the symptoms of liver disease are VERY subtle and your dog may be acting normal other than a few small differences in behavior. DO NOT WAIT TO CONSULT YOUR VETERINARIAN. Often times, by the time the symptoms below are present, the disease is quite advanced. Early detection is the KEY for treatment and survival.

    Pets with liver disorders can show a variety of physical symptoms. Very few of the symptoms are specific for liver disease, but can be signs of multiple diseases and conditions. Symptoms of liver disease are variable and subtle in the early stages of the problem. All, some, or only one of these signs may be present:

    Loss of appetite – Anorexia (Most Common) – THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND ANY EATING CHANGES SHOULD BE REPORTED TO YOUR VETERINARIAN.

    Intermittent recurrent abdominal or gastrointestinal upsets ; vomiting, diarrhea, constipation

    Progressive depression or lethargy ; does not want to play anymore or refuses to go for walks.

    Swollen belly with a fluid filled look. This is also known as ascites and is actually fluid accumulation in the belly due to circulation alterations in the abdomen.

    Pale gray feces. Bile pigments are what give feces it s characteristic brown color and if the liver is not processing bile properly, the feces will not get their color.

    Orange urine. The improper processing of bile results in the excretion of bilirubin in the urine in high amounts, thus orange urine.

    Jaundice, also known as icterus. Any pale or white skin or visible tissue takes on a yellow hue. Again the biliary pigments are accumulating in the body because the liver is not processing them.

    Bleeding problems. Many of the proteins required for proper blood clotting are created in the liver. Remove these proteins and blood clotting decreases.

    Hepatic encephalopathy, or severe neurological signs ; behavioral changes, seizures, aimless pacing or circling, head pressing.

    Pain associated with the abdomen. This is due to the stretching of the liver capsule. May be noted when the dog is lifted around the belly or when the veterinarian probes the abdomen. The veterinarian may also notice a swollen liver while palpating with some of the more acute liver diseases

    Chronic weight loss or wasting. The liver processes all the building blocks. If it fails to process, the body fails to maintain itself.

    Increased water consumption and urination. Most likely due to dramatic shifts in serum and kidney salt balances.

    In a recent study it was found that dogs with liver disease can also have high blood pressure. This is called hypertension, and should be monitored to see if therapy is needed

    If you notice any of the above symptoms, make sure you consult your veterinarian as soon as possible. Because the liver is able to function effectively even at 70-80% capacity, the disease may be in its advanced stages by the time the condition manifests itself.

    Grants

    Funding Request Guidelines

    The mission of the Foundation is to create funding for education and assistance of Home Health and Hospice patients and their families. In pursuit of this mission, the Foundation raises funds for distribution to home health and hospice care organizations (we do not give grants to individuals) to help cover the costs of equipment, programs and uncompensated care for patients. We measure our success by our ability to raise and effectively distribute these funds.

    The majority of the Visiting Nurse’s Foundation income comes from Foundation businesses. A portion of that income pays 100% of administrative expenses and the salaries of a minimal staff. The services of many hard working volunteers enables the remainder and 100% of all fund raisers, donations and memorials to go to benefit home health and hospice patients. The Foundation has a dedicated staff and active, all volunteer board, that works to increase funding to help meet a vital community need.

    We are a unique partnership of donors and home healthcare providers, working together to insure that home health and hospice patients will not be denied medical care because of their inability to pay for those services. This relationship is based upon mutual respect and understanding.

    The need to maintain a high level of accountability for contributed funds is basic to the partnership. As a condition of accepting funds, the agency in question should include in a year-end report, the number of unduplicated clients served with the funding, and the type of service(s) provided by the funds. They will provide at least three client stories that are representative of the patients helped by funds provided by the Foundation. Patients and communities benefiting from assistance given by the Foundation will be aware of this assistance.

    We are aware the need for home health and hospice care, and the equipment and programs to support this care has increased dramatically over the last several years and that there has been an even greater increase in the number of patients who need and want the comfort and healing benefits of that care, but cannot afford it. The Foundation is committed to help home health and hospice care providers in their efforts to serve residents in need of care, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.

    Welcome to the Sue Ryder Foundation

    The Sue Ryder Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping older people live safely, securely and independently-with a choice of services to suit all needs. Not so many years have passed since the work of the Sue Ryder Care was extended to Ireland when a small number of people were enthused to ‘Share the Care’ in our society. Founded in 1982 the Foundation now provides housing and support to the elderly and disabled in six locations throughout the State. Ballyroan, Dalkey, Holy Cross, Kilminchy, Nenagh Carlow. The challenges that age and disability brings are more manageable in the independent but supported environment the Sue Ryder Foundation provides.

    Hospice Services in Ireland

    Current Hospice Services

    There are nine inpatient hospices in Ireland; three in the Dublin area and one each in Cork, Limerick, Galway, Sligo, Donegal and Kildare. These cater for patients living within their catchment area only. Most hospice/palliative care in Ireland is delivered in the form of home care. These home care services are available in every county.

    You can view details of local hospice services in our directory of hospice services in your area .

    History Timeline

    Two Irish hospices have existed for over a hundred years. Hospice care as we now know it has been developed since the 1960s. Dame Cicely Saunders founded St Christopher s Hospice in London in 1967. It is regarded as the pioneer of the modern hospice movement. The influence of St Christopher s spread to other countries, including Ireland.

    • The Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) was founded in 1986
    • Irish Association for Palliative Care (IAPC) in the early 1990s
    • In 1995 Palliative Medicine was approved as a medical specialty by the Irish Medical Council

    Since the mid-1980 s there has been a huge increase in hospice/palliative care services country-wide, most of which is in the form of home care.

    National policy

    The Irish Government s 1994 National Health Strategy recognised the role of palliative care and committed to the continued development of these services.

    In 2001, the Report of the National Advisory Committee on Palliative Care, 2001 (NACPC), with its key recommendations for service development, was adopted by Government as national policy on palliative care.

    Baseline Study

    In 2004, the Irish Hospice Foundation undertook a nationwide study of the state of Irish hospice/palliative care services relative to national policy. The results were published in the report A Baseline Study on the Provision of Hospice/Specialist Palliative care Services in Ireland in March 2006.

    The study highlighted serious gaps in the provision of services, and in particular, extreme variations in state spending on services from region to region. This report, along with a follow-up study two years later (Staffing Levels and Bed Numbers in Specialist Palliative Care in Ireland, 2007 ), formed the basis for a vigorous advocacy campaign by the IHF, IAPC, Irish Cancer Society and voluntary hospices.

    HSE s Five-Year Development Framework

    In 2008, a framework for the future development of Irish hospice/palliative care services was finally agreed. This was detailed in the HSE report Palliative Care Services: Five-Year Medium-Term Development Framework. The report identified priority actions required to deliver a badly-needed further 203 hospice beds and 272 staff in hospice/palliative care services.

    The Irish Hospice Foundation

    Through our advocacy and development work, the Irish Hospice Foundation continues to strenuously pursue the development of hospice/palliative care services in Ireland, so that all persons facing the end of life may die in dignity and comfort, with appropriate care and support for them and their families.

    Irish Hospice Foundation

    The Irish Hospice Foundation is a national Irish charity working for better end-of-life care everywhere. Fundamental to our work is the belief that people have the right to die with respect and dignity. Our programmes bring hospice care and principles to people where they are – in their local communities, their local hospital, residential home or family home. We also spend resources on up-skilling existing health-care professionals, teachers and youth workers so they can provide the best quality care.

    We are a national charity working in every county of Ireland.
    Every one of us will be touched by some, or all, of our work.
    We receive no core state funding so your voluntary fundraising is critical.
    We are working for adults, children and families everywhere.
    Demand for our programmes has grown – and continues to do so.

    2016 marks a very special year for us, as we reach our 30th year.
    Over 30 years we have expanded to incorporate all aspects of dying, death and bereavement.

    Some of our services include:-
    Nurses for Night Care – providing professional end-of-life care in the home. Demand for this service is at an all-time high and we expect to provide over 1,700 nights of free care in 2016 alone.
    Children’s Palliative Care – providing vital support for children and their families.
    Hospice Friendly Hospitals – bringing the best care and hospice principles to people in hospitals around the country.
    Training and Education – up-skilling over 3,000 people annually so they can bring improved services to their local community.

    The Mission of the Hospice Care Foundation is to fund compassionate care activities and educate the community on hospice and palliative care options, while striving to ensure that hospice care options are available to all those in need.

    Hospice Care Foundation envisions the achievement of its Mission by endeavoring each day to become an A.C.E. organization:

    • Awarding grants to organizations, programs and projects who share its passion for improving quality of life for individuals requiring hospice and palliative care.
    • Providing financial assistance to hospice patients and their families to mitigate the financial burden related to a terminal diagnosis.
    • Uniting with and sponsoring community organizations to produce high-quality hospice and palliative care information and education events and activities.
    • Enlisting volunteers and community members to implement creative, energetic and effective fundraising events.
    • Acting as an information conduit for individuals regarding their hospice and palliative care options.
    • Utilizing multiple venues and avenues to provide the community with information on HCF operations and activities.

    Current programs of the Hospice Care Foundation include:

        • Making grants to Hospice/Palliative Care Providers in Western Montana on a quarterly basis
        • Providing financial assistance to patients and their families throughout Western Montana, on a rolling basis
        • Educating the community on the Hospice Care Foundation and Hospice Options using social media, E-news, printed news and special events
        • Fundraising for the Future
          • Hospice Ball Last Friday of February each year
          • Halloween for Hospice Partnership event with Southgate Mall on Halloween each year
          • Misc. Partnership events and activities throughout the year
        • Hospice Facility Project Working continually to identify a partner with the long term goal of a Hospice facility for Missoula

    The Hospice Care Foundation (HCF) was created in 1981 with the development of the Hospice Ball. The Hospice Ball quickly became a major annual fundraising event in the Missoula area while simultaneously providing outreach and education for the community regarding hospice and palliative care in Western Montana. As the number of attendees and sponsorship interest increased, the administrative demands required to host the event did likewise. The Hospice Care Foundation became a 501(c)(3) in June 2001 and the first permanent staff member was hired in 2007 to facilitate organization and ensure a productive fundraising event.

    Since its inception, the Hospice Care Foundation has raised and dispersed funds to hospice and palliative providers throughout the Missoula area. In 2005, the Board elected to focus HCF on a capital fundraising campaign with the long term goal of providing a dedicated hospice facility for Missoula. This campaign would ensure that HCF would remain fiscally solvent and ensuring that funding would be available for building the facility and conducting hospice and palliative care programs.

    In March 2010, local hospice care providers and community members were surveyed, government and health regulations reviewed, and cost projections updated. This research indicated that while a hospice facility was desired by the community, support in the form of grants, volunteer support, and community education programs were priorities. New programs and projects that could fulfill these needs were identified including a Community Education Campaign, which began in March 2011, and reinstatement of the Granting Program which supports hospice and palliative care providers. The Residential Hospice House Project remains viable but is a lesser priority for HCF at this time.

    In 2015, after receiving feedback from the community, HCF re-instated its (granting to individuals) programs to provide assistance directly to hospice patients allowing HCF to provide priority services and community support in a thoughtful and dynamic manner. At this time, HCF acts as a resource for community members, funds organizations on a quarterly basis and funds hospice patients and their families on an ongoing basis.

    • become a center of neutral, creative thinking on end-of-life issues for policy makers and opinion molders,
    • raise the visibility and credibility of hospice in general, and
    • become an advocate for those principles of hospice which may enhance the medical system in general.

    To more accurately reflect its national scope, in 1992 the Foundation opened a Washington, D.C. office for its policy and program work, and in 1994 the Board changed the name of Hospice Foundation, Inc. to Hospice Foundation of America.

    Example: There are a few times in life when a meal is so expertly crafted and planned that it is nothing short of genius. Last night, I had one of those meals – the Mahi Mahi.

    The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!

    However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite

    Supportive Care

    Supportive Care
    Supportive care, sometimes referred to as palliative care, is specialized, whole-person care in which the main goal is relief of symptoms and suffering. Palliative care services can be provided at the same time as care that is focused on cure.

    Supportive care often is administered in parallel with active treatment by a team specifically trained to provide the services described above. There now is a medical specialty in Hospice and Palliative Medicine with an increasing number of board-certified physicians available to offer these services. In addition to physicians, the supportive care team may consist of nurses, social workers, chaplains, massage therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists and others.

    It is important to understand the difference between supportive, or palliative care, and hospice care. Supportive, or palliative, care may begin at any time during the patient’s illness and is provided in addition to life-prolonging care. The patient does not have to choose between life-prolonging care and palliative care. Hospice care is a specific type of palliative care for patients at the end of their life, usually meaning a life expectancy of six months or less.

    The following references are offered to allow you to learn more about supportive, or palliative, care.

    After surviving cancer, women look for a community of support and guidance. In a video produced by the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, survivors share how they live and thrive after endometrial cancer. As described by one survivor, “You can get better.”

    The Foundation is featured in the Sept. issues of Coping. Women and Family Circle magazines. Look out for our articles ads!
