As a board member for Hospice of the Central Peninsula, I can say our programs are great services to those living on the Central Kenai Peninsula. From the loan closet, to active direct care, to our Camp Mend-A-Heart program for youth, we strive to provide both a compassionate shoulder and ear to the end-of-life transition, grief and bereavement process.
Hospice has a great loan closet of basic medical equipment. Nice to have a place to go to borrow a wheelchair, walker, and more. And it's free! They have lots of reading material for grief, caregivers, etc. And if they don't have what you need they can point you in the right direction.
Hospice helped our family when my dad was dying. My mom was taking care of him at home. His medical expenses were more than they could handle. Hospice provided some very much needed supplies, which allowed my mom to continue to care for him at home. With the help of Hospice of the Central Peninsula, by dad was able to pass away peacefully, where he wanted to be. Incredible compassionate people, who have a heart for the their mission, work and volunteer at Hospice.
