Everybody loves a birthday celebration-a statement that rings true from the youngest to the oldest of Hospice
patients. Our newly formed Birthday Club is a special celebration of recognizing each patients’ birthday in a special way. Volunteers will be responsible for deliver of a beautifully packaged, specially-made cupcake, with a helium balloon, and a birthday card signed by our team delivered to our patient on their special day! This will be done for our patients ages 0-21 and over the age of 90. Patients in between those ages volunteers will call and wish them Happy Birthday and mail them a card.

As part of our philosophy of "making today the BEST day" for our patients, it is a nice surprise and our patients and their families love sharing this special moment.

Our interdisciplinary teams members provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support through a family-centered approach so our patients and their loved ones can enjoy their remaining time together in the setting of their choosing - receiving the up-most quality of care and 24/7 support up until the last moments of life.
