The event will raise funds to support a Residential Hospice House in Western Kentucky. The residential Hospice House will provide 12-beds where terminally ill patients can end life’s journey in a comfortable home-like setting. It will offer an important option for people who are in need of end-of-life care and cannot, or prefer not, to die at home, in a hospital, or in a nursing home.
Hospice Houses offer a variety of services to meet the physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of its residents. The hospital needs to secure $3 million to achieve this goal of beginning construction for a Hospice House in Murray, which will be the only Residential Hospice House located in Western Kentucky.
