"Miller is the executive director of a small, pioneering hospice in San Francisco called the Zen Hospice Project. Once an outlier, Zen Hospice has come to embody a growing nationwide effort to reclaim the end of life as a human experience instead of primarily a medical one. The goal, as Miller likes to put it, is to 'de-pathologize death'.” http://nyti.ms/2hOHnkt

A wonderful article about the impact hospice volunteers have on the patients they serve and the gifts received in turn. "Their service connects them to the web of humanity and to the continuum of life and death." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rosemary-baughn/listening-at-lifes-end-no_b_13338802.html

Great to see the News website, Stateline (an initiative of the Pew Charitable Trusts) report on the Independence at Home demonstration. Many of the project's leaders are interviewed including HCP ED Terri Hobbs. They also spoke with one of our patients.

Pictured below is Dr. Tom Cornwell, HCP friend and fierce advocate of home-based medicine (read: superstar).

Some takeaways: A 2014 U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs study estimated that home care for Medicare beneficiaries with multiple chronic illnesses could save close to $4.8 billion a year.

Between now and 2035, with the aging of the baby-boom generation, the population over 65 is expected to grow from 48 million to 77 million and, with it, the number of homebound Americans. http://bit.ly/2biExfH

Got Awesome?
We do! Thanks to our friends at Awesome Beaverton and Beyond. The community group donated $1,000 to our volunteer-based program that is bringing music to the ears of hospice patients – especially those who suffer from dementia. The funds will support the purchasing of IPods and music specifically catered to the tastes of each patient. We are so grateful for this support and to be able to honor our elders with the gift of music. To find out more about this program, please contact HCP volunteer coordinator Todd Lawrence @ tlawrence@housecallproviders.org.
