National Hospice/Palliative Care Month

The Healing Project wants to alert its community that November is National Hospice/Palliative Care Month. Hospices and Palliative Care are often the most humane means of caring for a loved one at the end-of-life.

The theme for National Hospice/Palliative Care Month 2007, It Must Be Love, reminds us that hospice and palliative care is about more than traditional healthcare. It's hope and more -- it's providing solutions for difficult times when hope is in question, it's being close in a time of fear, it's a friend with time to share, it's laughter in the midst of tears, it's dignity, it's humanity, it's what we do. It must be love.

National Hospice/Palliative Care Month is a special time of awareness and outreach when hospices across the country reach out to raise awareness about important care issues for people coping with life-limiting illness.
