Hospice East Bay is excited to announce a 3-year grant from the Thomas J. Long Foundation enabling us to fund projects that benefit caregivers, patients, and regional non-profit hospice agencies.
Respite for caregiving family members provides a much-needed, temporary break from the often exhausting challenges they face. The “Give Me A Break” program provides funds for caregiver respite to families unable to pay for this care on their own. We will launch this program January 1, 2017.
Our Music & Memory program has enjoyed great success in its first year, bringing personalized music into the lives of those with life-limiting illnesses. The grant will allow us to expand our current program and hire a full-time music therapist to address complex medical symptoms that lie beyond the scope of the Music & Memory program.
Finally, we will strengthen our regional, community-based hospice organizations by engaging consultative services to create strategies for collaboration and growth.
Thank you Thomas J. Long Foundation for your transformational support!
