Hospicare & Palliative Care Services serves residents of Tompkins and Cortland counties.
83% of Hospicare’s services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances. Our generous community helps bridge the gap, ensuring exceptional care to every patient and family who needs us. Go the Distance and Women Swimmin’ for Hospicare are essential parts of our work to raise nearly $1 million from private sources each year.
Funds raised through Women Swimmin' and Go the Distance for Hospicare make the following possible:
...the Gift of Comfort
Contributions support caregivers in understanding how to make their home accessible; provide pillow wedges to patients to reduce the chance of bedsores; and support individuals at any stage of a serious illness through palliative care.
...the Gift of Support
Donations help a child participate in a workshop to create a clay memory box; support a patient who wishes to talk about advanced planning; and provide training to staff and volunteers to stay current on best practices in patient care.
...the Gift of Tranquility
Philanthropy brings therapeutic music to a patient; purchases seed so patients can watch the birds that visit the Hospicare residence; and help maintain the perennial gardens that provide beauty and solace for all who visit.
...the Gift of Peace
Contributions help Hospicare in its work to provide emotional support to patients who are struggling with complicated family dynamics; help a grieving spouse find a path forward; and provide counseling to a community group after a suicide.
Hospicare uses an interdisciplinary team approach to providing holistic care to patients, families and caregivers in Tompkins and Cortland counties. We offer emotional, medical and spiritual support, and patients have access to care from physicians, nurses, social workers, grief counselors, home health aides and volunteers.
