Hospice of Memorial Hospital awarded $10,000 grant
Hospice of Memorial Hospital, through the Memorial Hospital Foundation, was recently awarded a $10,000 grant from Fraternal Order of Eagles – Ohio State Aerie. The grant, which was the maximum amount available to be awarded, was received as a result of being nominated by the Fremont Fraternal Order of Eagles. Monies from the grant will be used to enhance the Hospice of Memorial Hospital Bereavement Program.
Director, Hospice of Memorial Hospital
Hospice of Memorial Hospital offers comprehensive bereavement support to people of all ages. Some components of the program include one-on-one meetings, special retreats, support groups and children’s bereavement programs, such as Camp Fearless, which in June provided 37 children from the community with the tools to cope with their grief.
“Our Bereavement Program is specifically designed according to the individual’s needs,” added Meade. “This grant from the Eagles makes it possible for Hospice of Memorial Hospital to bring additional support to not only our patients and their families, but the members of our community who have experienced the loss of a loved one.”
Hospice of Memorial Hospital is committed to enhancing quality of life by supporting patients and families physically, emotionally and spiritually in this community. The hospice team creates an individual holistic plan of care for every hospice patient – specific to their needs and desires. Hospice care is based on the belief that people have the right to live out their lives pain free and with dignity. For more information, visit memorialhcs.org/hospice.
