Holy Rosary Healthcare Celebrates National Palliative and Hospice Month

 “We Listen, We Care” is the theme for November’s Month of Awareness

Miles City, MT — Holy Rosary Palliative and Hospice Care is joining thousands of palliative care and hospice organizations across the country this November for National Hospice and Palliative Care Month with a community education event on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 from Noon to 1pm at HRH meeting room 1. The community is invited to come learn about Palliative and Hospice Care. Find out firsthand how Palliative and Hospice Care providers take the time to talk with patients and family caregivers, listen to their concerns, and work to ensure they get the care they want.

We all wish our loved ones who are living with chronic or terminal illnesses can have quality of life. Fortunately, there are two specialties of medicine dedicated to just that – they are called Palliative and Hospice Care. Hospice Care is meant for people who are terminally ill and are not looking to heal or cure their disease or illness. Palliative Care, on the other hand, is available to all patients at any point in their treatment, including those who are actively receiving care to heal or cure themselves.

Jeannette Donnelly, RN, HRH Palliative and Hospice Care Director, shares, “When you’re facing a life-limiting illness, you need answers, relief and specialized support. We’re a team located in Miles City that does exactly that, we care for those who are chronically or terminally ill where ever they are – in their homes, at nursing homes, at assisted living facilities and at Holy Rosary Healthcare. We support their families, we protect the patient’s dignity and, for families of hospice patients, we offer bereavement support after their loved one has died.”

According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), more than 1.5 million people with a life-limiting illness get help from the nation’s palliative and hospice care providers every single year.
