Become a Hospicare GEM!

“Twelve years ago, my mother received care at Hospicare’s residence on South Hill, and the staff’s dedication and compassion allowed for her peaceful passing. Our community is so fortunate that Hospicare can provide end-of-life care in a supportive setting, whether that’s at the residence or in your home.  I am proud to be a monthly donor to Hospicare and that my gifts can provide a steady flow of support to maintain this community gem. 

-Thelma Ridley
