Remembrance Walk Honors Memories of Loved Ones and Benefits Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton


Members of the community are invited to take part as individuals or as part of a team to honor the memory of a loved one at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton’s 3k/5k Remembrance Walk on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

The annual event involves the entire community in celebrating the lives of loved ones. Proceeds will enable Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization, to provide superior care and superior services to all patients with life-limiting illnesses, regardless of ability to pay. Programs supported by the Walk include:

Indigent Care – Hospice services are available to everyone in the greater Dayton community regardless of ability to pay.

Hospice House In-patient care options – In addition to serving patients in their homes, extended and assisted living facilities, Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton offers in-patient care at the Dayton Hospice House, providing intense care for patients experiencing medical situations or symptoms that cannot be managed in the home or facility setting.

Complementary, Focused & Palliative Care – Donor dollars enable patients to receive services such as highly specialized disease-specific treatment for hospice patients, and palliative care for patients with significant pain and symptom control issues. Massage, art, music and occupational therapies are also provided to assure an improved quality of life for patients.

Community wide Grief Support Services – We provide Grief Support Services at no cost, regardless of whether our hospice services have been used

Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton Receives $25,000 Check from WalMart

Patient quality of life at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton received a $25,000 boost from WalMart today.

Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton was one of several local non-profit organizations to receive grants from WalMart. The funds are earmarked for the Hope Fund which provides food, shelter, utility assistance and temporary housing to ensure families in the community receive the quality end of life care that they deserve. “The difference Walmart makes in giving back to our community shows the true spirit of being a servant to others,” says Lori Poelking-Igel, Executive Director of the Hospice of Dayton Foundation. “This generous gift of $25,000 will lighten the burden of another human being as they transition to the next chapter of their life, their end of life. Thank you for being part of that experience by enhancing the quality of living, not dying. Our Hope Fund enables us to alleviate stress for over 300 individuals who are faced with end of life challenges, but hunger, shelter and clothing won’t be one of them. Thank you for making this a reality for so many in need, and being partners in their journey.”

Additional information about the grant can be found online.

2015 Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

Each year, volunteers give their time, skills, and compassionate service supporting the mission of Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton and Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties. This time of year, the staff of both locations gets to say Thank You to the volunteers who help make providing superior care and superior services to our patients and their families possible!

We would like to add a special note of thanks to the wonderful members of the Epsilon Lambda Sorority. For the past 15 years, these talented and dedicated volunteers have created and sold hundreds of batches of homemade caramels as a fundraiser for Hospice of Dayton Foundation. This year, the group planned to turn out 350 pounds of delicious homemade caramels, with outstanding success! A check for over $2,000 was presented to the Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton Foundation today from sales. Amazing!

Thank you, Epsilon Lambda Sorority Sisters, and Thank You to all our incredible volunteers!
