Hope Shines Bright
The hope of this Holiday Season shines brighter, because of all of the volunteers who are committed to bringing better health and comfort to Nebraskans living with disease and disability, and helping CHC-NE to further our Mission of improving lives by raising funds for Nebraska’s health charities. We are so grateful for our workplace giving partners – United Way of the Midlands, United Way of Lincoln and Lancaster County and all of those business and industry leaders across Nebraska who hosted a “Partners in Health” campaign this year. Raising money for our member charities is truly a team effort and we are thankful you are all a part of our team.
While many of our workplace giving campaigns have wrapped up, our annual Curt Gordon Memorial CHC-NE Foundation drive is still underway. To those of you who have already given – Thank You! For those of you who haven’t, there is still time to send in your 2013 tax deductible gift.
From all of us at Community Health Charities of Nebraska – Warmest Wishes for a Happy Holidays!!
Hospice & Palliative Care
Hospice care is an end-of-life care that seeks to provide comfort and support – not only to the patient, but to the family as well. It is not a hospital bed surrounded by tubes and monitors. It is an environment where family members can sit with their loved one, and where patients are cared for not only physically but also emotionally.
Hospice care focuses on pain management and comfort measures, rather than curative medicine. This care is delivered through a team-oriented approach of expert medical care, pain management and emotional/spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's wishes. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), a proud member of Community Charities, is essential to this type of care.
