World Hospice & Palliative Care Day!

12th October 2013

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is a unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world. Help us celebrate this important day on October 12th by raising pledges for our Walk to Remember!  The pledge form can be found on the WTR event page!

The theme this year is 'achieving universal coverage of palliative care: dispelling the myths,' for example:

MYTH: Having hospice and palliative care means you will die soon.
FACT: Hospice and palliative care is not just for the end of life. It is a holistic approach that includes caregiver support, spiritual care, bereavement and much more.
