Hoffmann Hospice is pleased to announce that on April 25th, 2017 our 23rd annual Voices of Inspiration fundraising event will take place at Rabobank Theater and Convention Center. This year our guest speaker will be none other than the most decorated Olympian in history, 28-time medalist, Michael Phelps. The proceeds from this event support the mission of Hoffmann Hospice and allow Hoffmann Hospice to provide patient and family care to those in need regardless of their terminal diagnosis or ability to pay. Seating is limited and going fast.
Thank you to all the lovely women from the APW (Association of Petroleum Wives, Bakersfield) that came to tour the Hoffmann Hospice Home and learn more about our mission and the home. The Association of Petroleum Wives is an international, not-for-profit, organization. Our purpose is to promote social contact and friendship among their members, to raise funds for local charities, and to provide activities, information and moral support to their members. This year they have chosen Hoffmann Hospice as their charity beneficiary. We are so grateful for your support. The APW will be hosting a charity clay shoot for Hoffmann Hospice on March 31, 2017. If you would like to participate in the clay shoot please download and return the registration form to the APW by March 27th, 2017. Thank you for your support!
Hoffman Hospice staff worked with Starlight Children’s Foundation to provide Isabella and her family with their own brand new Radio Flyer wagon. The day before Thanksgiving, the little red wagon was decorated and presented to Isabella and her family. While many children enjoy riding in the iconic wagon this wagon opened up the possibility of a new set of adventures for this blue-eyed beauty! It not only allows Isabella and her favorite new teddy to be taken on walks with her family in comfort and style, but the size of the wagon allows for her medical equipment to be either placed inside it or have it wheeled safely along, out of sight. When your child has a life-limiting illness and your goal is to provide comfort, symptom management and enhanced quality of life it is never too soon to learn about hospice care options available for your child and family.
