Foothills Country Hospice: Help Create Lasting Memories for Families in Our Care this Holiday Season

When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness, making lasting memories is the most important gift you can receive. But for family caregivers, the opportunity to create those precious memories can be overshadowed with worry – worrying about your loved one’s comfort and pain management, worrying about completing daily household chores, worrying about ensuring legal and financial matters are in order.

At Foothills Country Hospice, we have exemplary palliative programs and support services in place to take that worry away –  giving our families the opportunity to create those special memories in the final days or months of life.

Todd & Alina Hiscock brought their beautiful Christmas sleigh to the Hospice on December 15th. Families, staff & volunteers enjoyed visits from the horses, sleigh rides through the field, caroling, holiday treats and photos with Santa & Mrs. Claus. The Grinch also made a surprise appearance. 

This holiday season, eight special families will call Foothills Country Hospice home. Right now, you have an opportunity to help create precious, lasting memories for families in our care.
