A Yoga Relay Supporting Caregivers!
Join our friends at SPY and SPRY for the 5th Annual (but first socially-distant!) Yoga Relay and picnic at Lake Mayer at 5:30 p.m. next Friday, October 16. We'll complete 100 Sun Salutations. Yes, sun salutations can be challenging - and 100 may seem impossible, just like taking care of someone 24 hours a day. But when we get a little help from our friends, we can do anything! Click here  to sign up and we'll help you find a team or you can form your own relay team.


(Last year's Relay at Service Brewing Co.)

Bring a picnic and stay to socialize afterwards. We will meet under the pavilion, so this event will be rain or shine! Can't join us? Use this link to make a tax deductible online donation, right now! Please choose the Edel Caregiver Institute as the "My Gift is For" recipient.
Wonderful Coverage of our Virtual Reality Partnership with SCAD

We are so grateful for our relationship with our Hospice Savannah volunteer and SCAD Professor Teri Yarbrow, a self-described "VR evangelist," and Max Almy, dean of SCAD's School of Digital Media. Titled VR for Good, this spring's 10-week class was the first of what SCAD hopes will become a whole curriculum-perhaps even a minor-devoted to immersive media in health care.

 Our Amazing CEO
Our Hospice Savannah and Steward Center for Palliative Care President and CEO, Dr. Kathleen Deloach Benton, never ceases to amaze us with her indefatigable energy and enthusiasm! Last month she published an academic text, Finding Dignity at the End of Life: A Spiritual Reflection on Palliative Care, 2020, Routledge Press, co-edited with her professional colleague and friend, Monsignor Renzo Pegoraro, physician, author, bioethicist and Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy for Life at the Vatican.

 

Finding Dignity at the End of Life discusses the need for palliative care as a fundamental human right and includes contributions from Harvard Professor and former Assistant Secretary for Health, Dr. Howard Koh and from Rachel Naomi Remen, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories that Heal. It is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other major booksellers.
Art to Support Music & Massage Therapy
Our thanks to everyone who participated in our board-hosted Summer Nights virtual party on September 24. (If you missed the live show, watch it here.) We are happy to announce that together we raised $54K to support the non-reimbursed Healing Arts of music and massage therapy for our patients.


Chris Carpentino sterling & jade brooch or pendant

Unsold art and jewelry is still available for purchase on  Location Gallery's website and will soon be hung in their new gallery space, opening mid-month at 251 Bull Street at Liberty, next door to the Sixpence Pub. We are excited to be the beneficiary of profits from Location's first show in their new home!
Extra Support for Cardiopulmonary Patients
Hospice Savannah physician Dr. Ryan Moody, a pulmonologist with Southeast Lung Associates,  serves as our resident Cardiopulmonary  expert and consultant to help provide patients with an additional level of care while reducing or eliminating emergency room visits and hospital admissions.
