Today celebrates hospice, pallative care programs
Today is World Hospice & Palliative Care Day, a day to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care programs around the world.
This year’s theme, “Access To Care For All,” highlights the fact that everyone has a right to high quality end-of-life care but that more needs to be done to enable access to such care.
The three aims of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day are to increase the availability of hospice and palliative care throughout the world by creating opportunities to speak out about the issues; to raise awareness and understanding of the needs – medical, social and practical; and to raise funds to support and develop hospice and palliative care services around the world.
For more information or to get involved, call Hospice and Palliative Care of Northwest Colorado at 879-1632.
