Albemarle Hospice supports fundraising events through out the year to raise monies for care of the terminally ill.
Proceeds raised allow Albemarle Hospice to continue to provide care to persons in the last phase of life so they live fully and as comfortably as possible and to assist families through the loved one's transition.
Albemarle Hospice uses donated funds to pay for services for indigent and limited insurance coverage patients needing hospice services in the six county area served.
The types of services provided are: skilled nursing, nurse aide, medical social work, chaplain and volunteers for bereavement services, which are provided to the family thirteen months after the loss of a loved one.
Other services include medical equipment such as hospital beds and oxygen. Also includes medications and supplies related to the terminal illness.
