Hospice Memory Tree on Display
An annual tradition is once again on display as a symbol of remembrance of loved ones and in support of hospice services. The Hospice Memory Tree of Lights is now on display in the main lobby of Western Missouri Medical Center.
The Memory Tree of Lights offers an opportunity to participate in an annual remembrance of loved ones, to honor someone, and to support hospice services. Everyone is invited to participate regardless of whether or not they have received hospice services. A $5.00 donation represents a light on the Memory Tree. All funds are used to directly support the hospice program for the patients, their families, and the volunteer program.
“We are so very grateful of the kindness and generosity of our communities during this season. The Memory Tree of Lights is a wonderful way to pay tribute and help ensure that the care of comfort of Johnson County Hospice is available to everyone.” said Norma Jean Busby, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator.
The Memory Tree of Lights is an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Johnson County Hospice Volunteers. Funds raised are used to help make up the difference between a client’s actual cost of services and medications and the amount hospice is reimbursed. Funds are also used to support the volunteer program and to provide educational resources and materials for hospice families, staff and the general public.
Hospice Care provides for the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of terminally ill clients and their families. For more information about hospice or about the Memory Tree, please call Johnson County Hospice Care at 660-747-6121 or visit www.JohnsonCountyHealth.org/Hospice.
