in December 2010 Nominees, Spread Your Warmth

Today’s nominee for the December edition of Sweatshirt Blanket’s Spread Your Warmth campaign is the Wings of Hope Hospice. Their mission is to provide compassionate care at the end of life and support through the grief experience for individuals and families in Allegan County, Michigan and surrounding communities.

Hospice is specialized healthcare for adults nearing the end of their lives. The focus of care is on comfort rather than cure. All needs of the patients are addressed, beginning with physical comfort, freedom from pain and other symptoms. The emotional and spiritual well-being of the patient are also primary concerns.

Wings of Hope Hospice provides high quality end of life care by a professionally trained Hospice team. Each Hospice team member has special expertise in their area of care. This team of physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors, home health aides, chaplains, therapists, and volunteers

The Hospice team provides complete patient care management and family support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Hospice nurses work directly with the patient’s personal physician and the hospice medical director to develop a plan of care that meets the patient’s needs throughout the course of the illness.

Thank you to Mary Stull for nominating Wings of Hope Hospice for the December edition of Sweatshirt Blanket’s Spread Your Warmth campaign. If you would like to learn more about this cause visit their website.
