Hospice Happenings
November is 
National Hospice Month

Visit our blog

Throughout the month of November, Hospice of Southern Illinois will be joining organizations across the nation hosting community activities in recognition of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.   Hospice of Southern Illinois has launched their own National Hospice Month campaign, "Living With Hospice." This campaign will showcase the moments and memories that matter most between families, friends, and caregivers who are touched by a life-limiting illness throughout their final months and weeks. Follow along, see the dignity, and share the legacy through your social media channels.

October was American Pharmacists Month

October was American Pharmacists Month and we presented a series of end-of-life topics on our blog throughout the month, by our very own, Matthew Clark, PharmD, PGY-2 Pharmacy Resident in Pain and Palliative Care.
