TRU Hospice of Northern Colorado (TRU HNC) and Banner Health / North Colorado Medical Center are pleased to announce that TRU HNC will be joining the Banner Health family of healthcare services in Northern Colorado. Banner Health will assume operations of TRU HNC over the course of the next two to three months.
Doug has been volunteering with TRU HNC for three years. He first became acquainted with hospice after he tried to get his mother into hospice services near Philadelphia, PA. Doug wears many hats as a volunteer and does patient visits, bereavement follow-up calls, and donation thank you calls. He also helps out each year at the Palisade Peach Event. When asked about his favorite part of volunteering with us he said:
Throughout 2016, TRU Hospice of Northern Colorado continued to serve our community with compassionate end-of-life care, providing excellent medical, emotional, and spiritual support. As we look back on our accomplishments in 2016, we honor and celebrate the lives of the many patients and families we served.
Nursing assistants (also known as CNAs) are key players in the lives of the people in their care. Each day, more than 4.5 million caregivers provide hands-on care to our nation’s frail, elderly, or chronically challenged citizens in nursing homes and other long-term-care settings.
When it comes to end-of-life care, talking matters. Wise words from our friends at The Conversation Project. National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) is an initiative of this project, and this year it’s celebrated for an entire week April 16-22.
Every month, The Greeley Tribune and Business Connect will publish a list of Who's Next, presented by Advantage Bank, that focuses on honoring young leaders (under 40) from different industries or fields. This month they are focusing on education.
