I know if it was not for the hospice group here many people would suffer when they would not need to. I have seen how much help they give to those in need.

I work for the Developmental Disabilites Program and several of our clients with disabilites who live in Group Home have received services from Curry County Home Health and Hospice. They have received great care and the group home staff have felt that they have the support to be able to keep people in their home rather than be placed in a nursing home away from what has been their family for up to 25 years!
What a great service that they provide to this community!

Friends of Curry County Home Health & Hospice is a very deserving non-profit organization which tremendously helps our community. I have been one of the many volunteers who have helped with their annual Rummage Market, Light Up A Life program, and Volunteer Recognition Awards Banquet. I'm proud to be a volunteer for such a deserving organization.

When my oldest friend's husband died, I lived two states away and couldn't be there for her. Hospice was there! Glenn died at home surrounded by loved ones. Hospice's role didn't die with him, they are there still, in support of my friend.

This wonderful organization didn't come into being because some people got together and decided it would be a useful fundraiser. There are many citizens in our small rural county that can't be taken care of in their final days through the normal and accepted channels of health care. Some very dedicated and concerned citizens stepped up to the challenge of working with the very well managed and extremely compassionate staff of the existing Curry County Home Health and Hospice department to organize the dedicated volunteers into their own supportive entity. The organizing group spent many hours to establish the mission and goals, obtain the non-profit status and construct volunteer guidelines to coordinate the talent and energy of many truly gifted and caring community members. The results are well earned and continually improving. However, this organization needs continuous support and donations to perpetuate this wonderful gift to those in need in our communities.

Thanks to Home Health & Hospice my husband was able to spend his last days in our home with those he loved at his side. After 45 years together my high school/college sweetheart - husband and I had shared it all and for our journey together to end in a distant hospital was unthinkable. He passed with peace and grace and those caring people made that possible. I am so grateful to every volunteer and employee; they are still here for me and continue to share their gift with unflagging generosity.

I have the privilege of knowing some of the volunteers of Curry County Home Health & Hospice. They spend a lot of hours caring for the sick, making them comfortable, and bringing them a ray of sunshine. There are others who spend hours of sorting, doing laundry, setting up and overseeing wonderful Rummage Sales throughout the year that benefit C2H3 and a Must-Go Event for our community along with several out-of-town visitors!

Home Health and Hospice has been there for my family and me a few times. First was my mother, they were very caring and supportive. My mother felt understood and comfortable. My family and I felt supported and also comforted. Later in life a friend of ours moved in our home and was in need for there services. At first our friend was having a hard time adjusting to his new situation. Hospice came aboard and started helping right away. My husband and me were very grateful and so was our friend. He new Hospice would be there to give us a break and that made him feel better about the situation. Thank you Hospice for being there!

Though listed as Curry County Home Health and Hospice, our hospice gets no county funds, but relies on medicare, medicaid, private insurance and fund raisers. Over 200 volunteers work with Hospice professionals to raise funds for equipment and medicines for those without the other sources. As volunteers for many years raising funds through our giant rummage markets, we are greatly impressed with the quality and caring of the professionals and the camaraderie of the hundreds of other volunteers who work to insure that those who need hospice care are properly served. Well over 2000 people shop the three day rummage market in August and several one-day sales throughout the year.

Home Heath and Hospice is a great organization that helps a lot of people in the community. Not only do they take care of their patients and the families of the patients, but they also offer bereavement and grief support for the general public and open up the Hospice Market place for families who have lost their homes and belongings to events such as house fires. The clinical team and volunteers are well educated and have so much compassion for their patients. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful team taking care of our loved ones in Curry County.

I have worked with the hospice and home health for many years both as a nurse at the hospital and a board member. Many of my patients have benefited from the program. Families from outside our area has praised the organization for the caring support. They offer not only professional support but supplies and the extra love that we all need while in hospice.
I recommend them to all that needs help. We are so fortunate in having them.

We are volunteers at our Market Place on the Rogue River, in Gold Beach, Oregon and we are also members of Friends of Curry County Home, Health and Hospice. We became involved with these two organizations because we were impressed by the dedication and hard work of the volunteers.
The purpose of both Friends C2H3 and the Market Place is to garner recourses to give aide to anyone who is in need of our services. All the money that is raised by these volunteers helps support the needs and wishes of our fellow community members regardless of their ability to pay.

I am a 'writer' for hospice articles and a 'visitor' to persons on hospice. I have been doing this for 3 years. I feel I was given excellent training in compassionate care. Even though I was nervous on my first visit, the training carried the day. This orgainization is very professional and caring. The folks working here are not 'on the job' but following their calling.

I have been a very satisfied user of Curry Home Health and Hospice. My husband had a very severe stroke and I needed help for the last 10 years of his life. It started with Curry Home Health coming 3 days week and ended with Hospice. They helped me and my husband through so many UPS and downs, and on those occasions when there was an emergency I did not know how to deal with or where to go, they were available NIGHT and DAY to HELP. Then when Hospice took over I was blessed. They were PERFECT. They set the stage and prepared me for my husbands trip to Heaven. I still rave about their services.
I watched Curry Home Health grow from a very small unit of dedicated helpers and limited space .to what we have today. So many residents NOW really rely on their services and readily plan to contribute donations for their annual sale We now need a larger building to store these donation. EVERY ONE is so dedacted

I became a patient care volunteer for C2H3 in 2003 because I believe that an individual facing the end of life nees a tremendous amount of physical and emotional care and support as does his/her family. It has been a privilege to volunteer with this organization. I am continually impressed with the professionalism of all the staff. Volunteers are never considered "just volunteers," but are one of the team of people dedicated to helping patients focus on living.

The emphasis in Hospice is on paliative care which allows patients to stay in their home with their pain managed and other medical help they need. As a volunteer I stay with the patient for a few hours a week to allow the caregiver time to get away for lunch with a friend, run errands, or do whatever. The work I do with patients is very rewarding.

C2H3 never turns a patient away for lack of money or insurance. Therefore funding is always a concern. Contributions go directly to help keep the program operating.
