November Observance Honors Members of the Community Impacted by Life-Limiting Illness

LEXINGTON, N.C., Oct. 5, 2016 Hospice of Davidson County invites the community to join local faith congregations in Hospice Sabbath, which raises awareness about chronic disease management and spiritual care for those facing life-limiting illness.

In observance of National Hospice and Palliative care month, Hospice Sabbath is a time to remember those who have passed away, while also recognizing the important role hospice plays in end-of-life care. During November, Hospice of Davidson County will partner with faith congregations across Davidson County and provide guest speakers to address chronic-disease management, end-of-life spiritual care and recognize neighbors, co-workers, friends and loved ones impacted by chronic illness.

“For the past three decades Hospice of Davidson County has blessed this community,” said Rev. Dr. Ray N. Howell III of First Baptist in Lexington. “Hospice is a ministry of hope and life, enabling families to walk through the final chapter of a life with dignity and grace. Hospice patients are empowered to fully live as they experience faith, hope, and love, the three realities that transcend sickness and death. I am grateful for the ministry of Hospice as I witness families discovering light in the midst of darkness.” 

In addition to guest speakers, Hospice of Davidson County will also provide bulletin inserts with information about Hospice Sabbath and hospice care to congregations interested in observing Hospice Sabbath.

Hospice of Davidson County cares for more than 100 patients every day in a variety of locations including private homes, long-term care and skilled-nursing facilities and at the Hinkle Hospice House.
For more information about Hospice Sabbath or to request a November guest speaker from Hospice of Davidson County, please contact Allyson Cathey at (336) 475-5444 or acathey@hospiceofdavidson.org by Friday, October 21.
