Montgomery – In honor of Hospice Month, Baptist Hospice is hosting a blood drive with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday Nov. 11 at 301 Interstate Park in Montgomery.
November is National Hospice/Palliative Care Month. In recognition of this month, Baptist Hospice enjoys helping give back to the community. This is the third year Baptist Hospice has hosted a blood drive. Baptist Hospice is encouraging the community to celebrate the life of someone you love by donating blood in honor or memory of them, or donate as a thank you to veterans.
Hospice is a special way of caring for people with a life limiting illness. It is designed to help people spend their days living as comfortably as possible at home surrounded by their loved ones. Baptist Hospice strives to create a secure and caring environment that emphasizes the quality of life by focusing on the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the patient and family. Baptist Hospice involves a caring team of compassionate, highly-trained professionals and dedicated volunteers who are committed to providing care to patients with life limiting illnesses.
