Celebrating Hospice Awareness Month with a virtual standing ovation for our valued hospice partners!

 “You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life.  We will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”

Dame Cicely Saunders

While this year has presented many obstacles to the hospice care we know and love, hospice clinicians all over the world have embraced the challenges, and have emerged stronger and more passionate for their cause than ever before.  We commend the nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, nurse’s aides, social workers, spiritual care, volunteers, and all others who work tirelessly to provide the same superlative care that Dame Cicely Saunders strove to achieve at St. Christopher’s hospice many years ago.

When our ProCare HospiceCare pharmacist team was asked to describe hospice in a few words, we immediately thought of: compassion, humanity, kindness, dignity and strength. We appreciate the supporting role we play as we interact daily with nurses, providing clinically appropriate and cost effective medication recommendations. The dedication of the holistic hospice team directly leads to patients/families achieving their unique goals at end of life.

 From our team to yours, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you do to help patients live until they die.
