Dogs and Dignity at End of Life
April 26, 2022
No one should have to manage their health care alone, particularly towards the end of their life. The Compass Care initiative provides and supports a collection of services to help patients and their loved ones during these emotional times. These services are provided through home hospice care, palliative care, inpatient hospice care at Cottage in the Meadow, and bereavement services. Through the Compass Care program, donors like you are changing the course of end-of-life care in our valley forever.
