South Carolina National Hospice Month Event

Posted by Joe B. Nester on September 29, 2011 at 9:05 AM

Life finds a way to manifest itself even through death. A wife that has lost her husband during 911 tells how she sees his face and hears his voice in the faces and voices of her children. A boy who has lost his father at an early age is now a young adult and hears his father offer advice as clearly as if he were in the same room. Every life has power and meaning. Someone has been influenced, motivated or inspired by another. "Life Blooms Eternally" celebrates our lives lived.


November is National Hospice Month and on November 4th and 5th "Life Blooms Eternally," a beautiful celebration of life, will transform the South Carolina Statehouse grounds into a stunning display of color and texture. The purpose of the display is to bring hospice awareness to all residents of South Carolina. 


The statehouse grounds will be transformed into a garden of floral umbrellas each representing someone that has benefited from the loving care of hospice. Hundreds of umbrellas spread across the statehouse grounds  will be a powerful testimony about the peace, comfort, and spiritual support a hospice team can offer both patient and family. Agape Hospice believes every resident of South Carolina should be aware of hospice and how it can benefit them.


The umbrella symbol is appropriate:


Agape Hospice takes a team approach utilizing social workers, chaplains, doctors, and nurses all working together to provide family and patient with an umbrella of services and care. These services enable families to truly cherish their remaining time with their loved one and celebrate the life lived.
