National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization November is National Hospice Care Month! Hospice is a movement which cares for patients at the end of life with both compassion and respect, honoring their whole person—body, soul and mind. Because there are many misunderstandings and myths regarding Hospice care. We at Senior Solutions Hospice thought we would celebrate National Hospice Care Month by sharing with you the Hospice Story… Just how did we get here? The first hospices are believed to have originated in the 11th century, when for the first time the terminally ill were permitted into places dedicated to treatment by Crusaders. In the early 14th century, the order of the Knights Hospitaller of St. John of Jerusalem opened the first hospice in Rhodes, meant to provide refuge for travelers and care for the ill and dying. The hospice practice languished until revived in the 17th century in France by the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul and, later, by the Irish Sisters of Charity, who opened St Joseph's Hospice in London, England in 1902. In the 1950s at St. Joseph's, Cicely Saunders developed many of the foundational principles of modern hospice care. She later founded St. Christopher's Hospice in London. (Source: Wikipedia) “You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can to help you not only to die peacefully, but also live until you die.” (Cicely Saunders) In 1971, Hospice, Inc. was founded in the United States, the first organization to introduce the principles of modern hospice care here in the United States, where medical care had focused on fighting illness through hospital stays. Throughout the 1970s, the philosophies of hospice were being implemented throughout the United States. In 1982 Medicare added hospice services to its coverage. On September 13, 1982 US President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the week of November 7 through November 14, as National Hospice Week. Chaplin Deacon Dan McGrath & Max (Source: Wikipedia) We at Senior Solutions Hospice offer compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness. Our goal is to maintain or improve quality of life for someone whose illness, disease or condition is unlikely to be cured. Each patient’s plan of care addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that often accompanies terminal illness. In addition, we offer practical support for the patients caregivers and family during the illness and grief support after death. Hospice Is Not About End of Life Care…It’s About Quality of Life. “It’s About How You Live." Next week...When is it time to call? And the Hospice Care Team.
