National Hospice & Palliative Care Month
Celebrate National Hospice and Palliative Care Month with Hospice of the North Coast!
Join the Movement to Raise Awareness and Show Compassion
Welcome to Hospice of the North Coast, your compassionate partner in providing exceptional care and support for individuals and families facing serious and life-limiting illnesses. As we approach November, we invite you to celebrate National Hospice and Palliative Care Month with us!
Sharing Courageous Conversations
In a society that often urges us to avoid the topic of mortality and a healthcare system that focuses on medical interventions, the simple act of engaging in a conversation about the end of life can have a profound impact. Reflecting on what death means in our lives and considering how our values would guide our journey if faced with a terminal diagnosis are difficult but essential questions.
Equally important is envisioning how we want our loved ones to support us during this time. Though it may be challenging, having these honest and courageous conversations with ourselves, our family, friends, and doctors can make all the difference between having a death that aligns with our wishes and values, and one that leaves us without a voice in our own end-of-life journey.
As we approach Hospice and Palliative Care Month this November, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) is urging everyone to embark on these Courageous Conversations, creating an open and meaningful dialogue about the concept of "dying a good death." Together, let us explore the importance of this topic and the transformative impact it can have on how we approach the end of life.
Let's Make a Difference Together
Every November, people across the United States come together to recognize the invaluable services provided by hospice and palliative care providers. This month is dedicated to raising awareness, promoting understanding, and fostering compassion for those navigating the challenging journey of serious illness. At Hospice of the North Coast, we embrace this opportunity to connect with our community and encourage everyone to get involved!
