Hospice of Dayton Earns NIJH Accreditation

Posted By:

Jewish Hospice AccreditedHospice of Dayton is now included in a select group of 60 hospices nationwide after earning accreditation with the National Institute for Jewish Hospice (NIJH). The accreditation links Hospice of Dayton with NIJH which provides staff training and insights on treating Jewish patients who are terminally ill, and access to resources and education about Jewish custom and practice that may arise while caring for a hospice patient who is Jewish.


According to Hospice of Dayton’s Team Leader for Chaplain Services, Gayle Simmons, “The training and resources available through NIJH enables our interdisciplinary teams to provide specialized care to patients of the Jewish faith who are at the end of their life,” says Simmons. “We can now offer appropriate emotional and spiritual support to our patients and their families as they go through this most difficult journey.”


R.J.’s Story

Posted By:

R.J. and Ada Neace shared a childhood crush, a teenage romance and 44 years of marriage.  It was a childhood romance that would never end.

R.J. was born in Kentucky, one of six children.  He and Ada made Medway, Ohio their home.  R.J. had a career and retired from the Teamsters Union.  He and Ada raised two sons and celebrated the births of two granddaughters before R.J. faced health challenges that reached the point where his doctor asked if he wanted to be placed on a respirator. The couple faced a choice and a life chapter that brought them to Hospice of Dayton.  R.J. received care in the home he and Ada shared, saving R.J. from worrying about Ada driving home alone from the hospital after dark.    R.J. was a loving husband, father and grandfather who is truly missed by his family
