Do you have aging parents or a loved one with a serious illness? Hospice of Siouxland specializes in caring for individuals with a life-limiting illness, their families and caregivers.
“The last weeks and months of a person’s life can be amazing,” says Carla Thompson, director of Hospice of Siouxland. “As people focus on what’s truly important, life’s end, I have found, unfailingly comes down to relationships – with family, friends, perhaps estranged loved ones, and in many cases, with their higher power as they define.”
As part of our end-of-year giving campaign, and in conjunction with Giving Tuesday, we ask for your help in supporting our mission of service at Hospice of Siouxland.
Part of our role at Hospice of Siouxland is to help people determine and fulfill end-of-life wishes while having their pain managed and dignity respected.
