2020 Ride For Angels

There is no doubt that this has been an ever-changing, challenging, and unprecedented year. Your support is even more critical as our essential frontline staff continue their compassionate care for our end-of-life patients. In an effort to abide by social distancing guidelines and ensure the safety of our highly-valued riders, we are going virtual for the 2020 Ride for Angels!

We are encouraging riders to show their support for Hospice of Davidson County by taking a ride at their leisure while wearing their new Ride For Angels t-shirts. As Saturday, July 18th, is being recognized as the official day of the ride, you can ride whenever you like. We invite you to share your pictures and stories with us, so we can share them on our Facebook page, and through our website. You can email them to communityrelations@nullhospiceofdavidson.org.

T-shirts this year will be Hospice of Davidson County green. You can purchase the t-shirts and/or your memorial listing by completing this form and mailing along with your payment, OR, you can order online by clicking here.

Grieving in a Crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we work, how we live, and especially how we grieve. We can change some things, like how we shop, or how we engage others face-to-face through social distancing. But grief doesn’t change. If you’ve recently lost a loved one, you well know that the grief you’re facing is real, and nothing about COVID-19 is changing that.

Caregiver Academy
Caregiving is a challenging role that is draining and often underappreciated. Most caregivers have to dive in with no training and little support. Caregiver Academy provides practical education and support one class at a time, so you can be a confident, courageous and competent caregiver for your loved one. These free classes are taught by community experts and are open to those who provide care to their family members. Click here to learn more about dates and registration.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a specialized type of health care that is delivered by our own physicians, nurses, Hospice aides and social workers. Many patients and families also choose to include additional team members such as a spiritual counselor, grief counselor, and a volunteer.
