November is Palliative Care and Hospice Month, so we delivered soup to local healthcare facilities because our palliative and hospice care is there for all our patients' extra care needs, like a hot cup of soup or a cozy sweater. 🥰

Palliative care or Hospice is not giving up, it’s utilizing care and extra support when it’s really needed. Patients find their symptoms become more manageable and their days better. ❤️

❓ What's the difference between palliative care and hospice ❓

Palliative care and hospice have similar values. Both focus on preventing pain and improving quality of life. Palliative care is distinct from hospice because curative treatment can still be pursued and a terminal diagnosis isn't required, unlike hospice.

Palliative care is often recommended in the initial stages of an illness while receiving treatment, whereas hospice is recommended towards the end of a fatal illness. The focus of both is on pain prevention, relief, and management, but with palliative care the illness may still be successfully treated.

We hope this has helped you get a clearer picture of both hospice and palliative care, let us know in the comments if you have any further questions!

October is Clergy Appreciation Month! We would like to recognize our Chaplain, Mr. Danny Turner. For over 7 years, Danny has been serving the our hospice ministry.

He always has a smile! 😊

Danny serves our patients and their families with humility and love. He also gives the same care to the office and clinical staff with every encounter. Danny, we love you and the work you do. Thank you for your kindness and care! ❤️

We love making dreams come true, and recently, we got to help make one happen! ✨

A case manager at MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital called us asking if we could help fullfill someone's dream. She said one of their patients, Jo, was a big Milwaukee Bucks fan and would love an autograph. We called the boys basketball coach at Porter-Gaud School and he called one of the Porter-Gaud alumni who plays for the Bucks, Khris Middleton! 🤩

Khris graciously autographed one of his signature Khris Money t-shirts for Jo. Khris gives so much back to the Charleston and Milwaukee communities. It was a great pair, both Jo and Khris fight and work hard every single day, one for his life and one at his trade. We present Jo and his mom with his autographed shirt at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Charleston. 🏀

We had Jo autograph a picture of him with the shirt Khris sent. So now Khris has Jo‘s autograph, the autograph of a true hero and fighter! We like to thank everyone who made this special moment happen and look forward to doing more the community. ❤️

A special thank you to Kevin Ziman, Lee Monk, and Rebecca Moser for all their work on making this dream happen! 👏

Depression is Not a Normal Part of Growing Older | Alzheimer's Disease and Healthy Aging | CDC

Getting older can present its own set of challenges, but #depression should not be one of them. This National Depression Screening Day, we want to remind all seniors that depression isn't an unavoidable part of aging and there IS help out there if you are struggling. A great place to start is this article by the CDC. Make sure to check out the web resources listed at the bottom of the page.

You are not alone. 🖤

Depression is Not a Normal Part of Growing Older | Alzheimer's Disease and Healthy Aging | CDC Depression is a true and treatable medical condition, not a normal part of aging. However older adults are at an increased risk for experiencing depression. If you are concerned about a loved one, offer to go with him or her to see a health care provider to be diagnosed and treated.
