It’s one of the biggest myths that Carroll Hospital’s palliative care nurses face: the belief that palliative care is the same as hospice care.
Carroll Hospice will remember fallen heroes with a luminaria lighting on Sunday, October 6.
On this day, luminaria—paper bags filled with tea lights—will be lined up outside of Dove House, Carroll Hospice’s inpatient facility, to honor individuals who have died who had served in our country’s military or were first responders.
“Our event was so moving last year that we wanted to include all of our community heroes to be honored and recognized,” says Kimberly Benson, Carroll Hospice’s volunteer coordinator. “This includes many of our patients who have passed as well as those who were taken in the line of duty to our country or community.”
The public is invited to attend the event and personalize a bag in honor of a loved one. The lighting will begin at 6 p.m. and a short service will take place at 7 p.m. at Dove House, 292 Stoner Avenue, Westminster.
For more information or to personalize a bag in honor of a loved one, please call 410-871-8000.
When there isn’t a lot of time and unexpected circumstances arise, cooperation and flexibility are key indicators of how well a team functions under pressure. Lorna Rice, Carroll Hospice social worker, and Art Monroe, Carroll Hospice chaplain, are a prime example of teamwork at its best. The duo was recently named team of the month for the comfort they provided during a patient’s final hours.
Carroll Hospice is pleased to partner with Pritts Funeral Home to honor Vietnam veterans for their service to our country.
On Sunday, August 11, Pritts will host a Vietnam Veteran Honoring Celebration at 1 p.m.
