For 20 years Heart of the Redwoods Hospice has been helping this community face illness and death with grace and strength. Please help us continue our work.
We are an independent, community-oriented, nonprofit organization that provides free service to this underserved, large geographic area. Hospice services are an important part of our healthcare system, immune to government budget cuts because we receive no government support. HRCH is a non- Medicare funded hospice here to support folks who wish to "live until they die." A Medicare hospice requires a 6-month terminal diagnosis and agreement to end all potentially curative treatment. We are able to support a client and their family from the diagnosis on, no matter what the outcome, with no requirements about time or treatment.
We were fortunate to be awarded a small grant that enabled us to hire Jonell Monschke as volunteer coordinator last year. We held two trainings that were very well attended with the outcome being many trained patient care volunteers. Jonell's tragic death left us with the need to restructure staffing and rethink how we provide services. We also sadly say farewell to Jen Waters and Susan Alexander, we appreciate the many years of dedication and hard work that these women gave to hospice. We welcome Devon Small as our new Office Coordinator and Amie McClellan as Bookkeeper and Grant Writer. Our office is now open Tuesday thru Friday 10-3, with staff on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Along with our annual events we rely on and need your help. Please give as generously as you can.
Thank you, The Hospice Team Staff:
Jill Girard RN - Patient Care Coordinator; Shirley Gray - Bereavement Counselor; Devon Small - Office Coordinator;
Amie McClellan - Bookkeeper/Grant Writer.
Board of Directors: Julia Anderson, Brian Harper, Jane Gund, Mary Neufeld, Ben Wilke, Joe Whitney, Mark Speer.
