“I have long supported greater choices in end-of-life care for all Americans,” said Wyden. “I believe that encouraging citizens to learn more about the options hospice and palliative care can provide is a critical part of helping to make those informed choices. That is why I am proud to join my colleagues in declaring November 2016 National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.”
Throughout November, hospices nationwide have been celebrating their shared commitment to caring for the more than 1.6 million patients we have the honor to serve every year.
“Seasons is thankful for Senator Wyden’s support of the hospice community,” said Todd Stern, CEO of Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care. “We are excited to help raise awareness of the benefits of hospice and palliative care for patients and families.”
Seasons has joined other hospices this November celebrating hospice month by engaging in hospice public awareness campaigns, highlighting celebrations on social media, providing education on advanced directives, and most importantly, by thanking our staff who provide excellent care every day at the bedsides of the patients and families we serve.
