Review for Compassionate Care Hospice Foundation, Newark, DE, USA
As a professional Hospice Social Worker, it is difficult to find the words to describe how important and valuable the services Compassionate Care Hospice Foundation (CCHF) are, this is largely due to the positive emotional effect experienced by both the dying patients and their families. This organization has left an indelible mark on thousands of human beings. There are many people who have had their dying concerns eased simply through having the chance to see a distant loved one or having the financial stresses of the family eased.
The significance of this nonprofit can not simply equate to dollars. There is a human element that can not be measured and the services provided by CCHF have demonstrated an organization that is willing and knows the importance of thinking critically and is motivated to personalize the assistance offered to dying patients and their families. Tickets have been bought for children so that they could spend last moments with family members and patients able to travel to their country of origin have had CCHF's compassionate understanding so that they could be buried on their native soil.
One of the invaluable outcomes of CCHF's involvement is experienced by the elderly survivor of expired patients. Paying one months rent for someone who has been financially dependent upon their significant other's income sometimes for over 50 years has been a godsend for people living close to the poverty line and a check away from homelessness. Lastly, the look of gratitude and appreciation patients and their families positively affected by the efforts of CCH helps to make a difficult job that much more rewarding.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find ways to increase funding so that more families could benefit from the efforts of CCHF.
