Hospice & Palliative Care Programs
Ensure Every Person's Life is Honored and Remembered
Imagine if you were able to focus on the whole person in your care and assist them in reflecting upon their life and sharing the voice of their heart. Our work is unique in that it incorporates conversations about each patient’s values, faith, beliefs, life lessons, hopes for the future, gratitude, love and forgiveness. By sharing these perspectives, individuals often become more intentional in how they live the final stage of their lives, communication about their needs and priorities becomes clearer, family relationships are enhanced, and they gain peace of mind and a sense of well-being knowing they will live on in the hearts and memories of their loved ones. And family members and friends receive additional comfort throughout their bereavement journey as they share stories, life experiences and memories about their loved one.
Maximize Your Impact, Transform Lives
LivingWisely offers many benefits to hospice and palliative care programs. Patients report improved physical and mental health, quality of life, and family relationships, as well as a renewed sense of purpose and meaning. Families and friends receive a heartfelt gift to ensure their loved one will be honored and remembered, and they receive additional comfort as they transition through their journey of grief and loss. Staff and volunteers gain a deeper understanding of their patients and a feeling of greater job satisfaction and engagement. And organizations benefit by having a profound impact on the lives of each patient and family they serve.
Thank you for being a thought leader and recognizing the importance of our patient and family focused programming to help honor and remember your patients and support their loved ones. Please let us know when you are ready for an informational conversation about LivingWisely and how each of the components may be tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of your organization.
Legacy Letters have helped Grace take our mission of treating every patient as a treasured loved one to a new level. They are an amazing gift that allows our team members, patients and their survivors to have a richer, more meaningful experience. We can now focus on what matters most to each person in our care by helping them remember and share their life experiences, wishes, hopes, gratitude and love, instead of focusing on their illness.
Legacy Letters provide so many benefits to Grace. The Legacy Navigator training helped bring our team together with a common purpose and ongoing shared experiences. The resources make it easier for us to gain an understanding of the whole person so we know how to best serve those in our care. Patients have shared with us that the Legacy Letter conversations have improved their quality of life and in some cases, even reduced their pain and suffering. And the beautiful Legacy Letter documents become a precious and enduring gift for their loved ones.
At Grace, each patient’s life does matter, and with the Legacy Letters, each person will be remembered.
