Edwards, CO August 21, 2018 – The board of directors of HomeCare & Hospice of the Valley (HCHOTV) invite the community to an evening of delicious food by Chef David of Vista, fine wine, craft beer, unique silent auction and wonderful live music donated by Brad Quayle, Mickey Poage, Peter Fontanese, Brent Gordon, Phil Long, Roy Bloomfield, Kevin Danzig and Larry Dutmer.
Hospice of the Valley is a 501(C)(3) and is the only state licensed and Medicare-certified hospice care provider in Eagle County. “Our nonprofit hospice model ensures that no one is denied hospice services due to a lack of insurance or financial resources,” states HCHOTV’s Lanell Avery, and this care is available to people of all ages, from infants to elderly.
Hospice refers to caring for a person’s comfort and needs, and is intended to provide dignity for those near their end of life. The programs provided by Hospice make all the difference regarding peace, care and support, not only to the patient with life-limiting illness, but also to those whom they love. “I never really understood what people meant when they described someone’s passing as peaceful, but Hospice created that moment for me and my Mom…so I will be forever grateful for their team of angels,” recounts Lindsay Olson, daughter of Kris Sims of Cordillera, who died June 14, 2018.
Providing services in our growing communities where there is an aging demographic is an increasing challenge for HomeCare & Hospice of the Valley. Currently, there is a $90,000 annual deficit from operations, which is made up in part by charitable contributions and proceeds from fundraising events, the largest of which is “Savour the Journey”. Committee member Kathy Treat describes her family’s journey and shares, “At some point in our lives, most of us will need the support and love given by this dedicated group of individuals. During difficult times, their kindness and compassion are indispensable. Sandy and I, and our boys, are forever grateful for their guidance and care that they so sweetly gave to each of us.”
Join us for a fun evening and support a team of angels!
