November Observance Honors Members of the Community Impacted by Life-Limiting Illness
LEXINGTON, N.C. (Nov. 6, 2019) – Hospice of Davidson County invites the community to join local faith congregations in Hospice Sabbath Sunday, Nov. 17, 2019, to raise awareness about the importance of spiritual care for those facing life-limiting illness.
In observance of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, Hospice Sabbath is a time to remember those who have passed away while also recognizing the important role hospice plays in end-of-life care. Churches across Davidson County are being asked to participate by displaying a white rose gift from Hospice of Davidson County in memory of all congregation members that have passed.
In addition, Hospice of Davidson County will further assist faith congregations across Davidson County by providing guest speakers and bulletin inserts to address chronic-disease management, end-of-life spiritual care and recognize neighbors, co-workers, friends and loved ones impacted by chronic illness.
“Hospice Sabbath is a meaningful way for us to recognize National Hospice and Palliative Care Month,” said Hannah West, director of community relations for Hospice of Davidson County. “It gives us an opportunity to partner with local faith-based communities to recognize the mission of hospice care, provide education to community members on hospice benefits, and spend time in reflection on those experiencing life-limiting illnesses.”
For more information about Hospice Sabbath or to request a November guest speaker, white rose or materials from Hospice of Davidson County, please contact Charla Darr at (336) 475-5444 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Nov. 11.
