A Golden Year

As we enter 2018 we continue to celebrate the GOLDEN anniversary of Hospice care. In 1967 Dame Cicely Saunders created St. Christopher’s Hospice in the United Kingdom.  Since then, hospice has taken great pride as the model for quality compassionate care for people facing a life limiting illness. Hospice provides expert medical care, pain management and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is also provided to the patient’s loved ones.

Hoffmann Hospice invites you to join us in this year long Golden Celebration with an anniversary gift of $50.00. Your generous donation will ensure continuous support of the many programs Hoffmann Hospice has to offer. IN 2017 our Hoffmann Hospice Home served its 500th patient. Our grief support program has expanded to the Spanish speaking community and welcomed famed author and trauma counselor H. Norman Wright with a weekly grief program dedicated to those locally affected by the Las Vegas tragedy.  With your gift we can continue these programs, and provide the ongoing We Honor Veterans Program, along with care for those who are less fortunate and without financial means to pay for hospice services. As Kern County’s only nonprofit hospice, your donation is effective and greatly appreciated. 

All donors of $50.00 or more will receive a 50th anniversary blooming adornment that will blossom with wildflowers in your special garden.

With a generous gift of $500.00 or more your name will be GOLDEN and placed on our 50th Anniversary of Hospice celebration wall.  This special wall of recognition will be located in our Hoffmann Home where patients, friends and families can recognize those helping support their loved one.
