Supporting Innovations in End-of-Life Care

ABOUT

ABOUT

Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach

recently celebrated more than 37 years of service and support in Palm Beach County as the group continues to grow and excel in its mission of supporting local hospice care and programming.

The small group of dedicated volunteers are committed to supporting available care for local families in our community. Through Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach’s fundraising and support, Hospice of Palm Beach County is assisting in providing care for more than 2,000 individuals every day. Services provided by Hospice of Palm Beach County include palliative care, counseling, and end-of-life care. Along with medical care, the foundation helps to fund innovative support programs including tele-medicine and music therapies.

Each year, the foundation hosts Hospice Evening, inviting friends and supporters to celebrate the foundation’s work and to raise additional money for local hospice care.
