You Make It Possible!
Your contribution to hospice makes a very wonderful statement about who you are. Supporting members like you understand the importance of and need for the programs and services we deliver in Warren County, and the impact these services have on so many in our community.
This year marks 37 years since the beginning of Hospice of Warren County.
Together, we have built one of the premier Hospice programs in the state — right here in Warren County. We’ve done this in a sustainable way through a strong and growing Endowment and involved local governance boards and management. We are neighbors caring for neighbors! We are a non-profit, Medicare certified, professionally staffed Hospice providing care since 1979 – an incredible accomplishment in any community. Among the first hospice programs in the country, we were driven by the vision and commitment of Dr. Roger Mesmer and Joseph DeFrees to change the way end of life care in Warren County may be experienced — a vision and commitment that remains at our core today.
Together with your support, our strong group of committed and caring staff and volunteers provide a very broad range of services including:
1. Hospice Program (Since 1979)
Specialized care focusing on comfort and quality of life for people with any life-limiting illness. We work with the local Veterans’ Council to give special honor to veterans with a pinning ceremony that expresses our gratitude for their service to our country.
2. John and Orpha Blair Hospice Residence (Since 2010)
A serene, private, home setting with care provided by Hospice of Warren County staff. Our Hospice Residence is one of only four such facilities in the state providing a unique level of care that we can all be very proud of.
3. Palliative Care Service (Since 2006)
A consult service that seeks to improve the quality of life for seriously ill patients and their families through pain management, coordinated care and support. We have currently assisted over 500 patients and families since the development of our Palliative Care Service.
4. Pediatric Hospice and Palliative Care (Since 2013)
Skilled care focused on the special needs of seriously ill children and their families.
5. Coping with Grief & Loss (Since 1979)
Individual and group counseling services for any person who is dealing with loss of a loved one. No prior connection with hospice is necessary.
We go to great efforts to provide this full spectrum of services because we understand the importance of improving quality of life for patients and coping and healing for their families. We never turn away anyone in need of our service for lack of insurance or inability to pay.
Our growth in service offerings, patients, family interactions, supply needs, and employees has created the need for a larger office space; one that is more conducive to providing proper privacy and space. 2015 brings Hospice of Warren County into the next generation by relocating our main office to 1 Main Avenue, Warren, directly across from Warren General Hospital. This upcoming year, we also hope to greatly expand our Grief and Loss Support services and our Art Therapy service.
