Pathways of Hope – Grief support services through Pathways of Hope are available at no cost to anyone in our service area who has lost a loved one, regardless of whether hospice care has been provided by Hospice of Dayton® or Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties. Group and individual counseling are available for children and adults in a variety of community locations to make services more convenient and accessible. Children’s programs, including Camp Pathways and Healing Pathways community counseling outreach, rely completely on donor support.
Unfunded Patient Care – Both Hospice of Dayton® and Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties provide care for all hospice eligible patients regardless of his or her ability to pay. As the Miami Valley economy has declined in recent years, more and more families have suffered the loss of employment and loss of insurance coverage and benefits. More and more patients need hospice care but do not have means to pay for needed services. Donations assure that Hospice of Dayton® and Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties can continue to provide care to those in need.
HOPE Fund – Your financial support can be used to help address the basic life needs of hospice patients and families through Hospice of Dayton®’s HOPE Fund. Regardless of whether the patient is being serviced by Hospice of Dayton® or Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties, this fund assists patients and their families providing comfort beyond medical needs. With this fund, dollars will be disbursed immediately for the urgent needs including utilities, air conditioners/fans, bus transportation, groceries, dentures, eyeglasses, telephone minutes, warm clothes and blankets.
Staff and Community Education – Our in-house Educational Resource Center provides the tools necessary to advance the clinical skills and knowledge of our staff. We offer community education programs at local senior centers, recreation centers and senior housing complexes to emphasize the importance of end-of-life planning. We provide education to physicians, physician office staff, hospitals, extended care facilities and to community organizations such as the Miami Valley Alzheimer’s Association, GraceWorks and the Dayton Area Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis/Lou Gehrig’s Disease Support Group.
Home Health Aide/Support – We provide more home health aide/homemaker services than any other hospice. We personalize our home health aide and homemaker services to meet the needs of individual patients and have more State Certified home health aides on staff than any other hospice in the region.
Presence at time of death – Our goal is to assure that each patient does not go through end of life passing, alone. We are committed to having hospice care providers at the bedside at the time of death. This commitment requires significant training and staffing to assure we meet the needs of patients and families.
Gardens – The beautiful gardens at Hospice of Dayton® offer a unique way to remember a loved one, create a place of beauty, and pay a tribute to a friend – all while supporting Hospice of Dayton®. We invite you to remember a loved one through the Gardens of Hospice. With 17 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, you have the chance to select a particular garden as a permanent remembrance of a special person, group or significant event in their lives.
