November is Florida Hospice and Palliative Care Month
Tallahassee, FL – Florida Hospice and Palliative Care Association joins hospice organizations across the state to bring awareness of hospice and palliative care services. Last year, over 130,000 patients received hospice care in Florida. Throughout the month of November, FHPCA’s How We Care campaign will help Floridians understand the importance of end-of-life care and the support available when facing a life-limiting illness.
“Florida has 46 hospice providers and these programs are committed to providing high-quality of care to patients and families,” said Paul Ledford, President and CEO of Florida Hospice and Palliative Care Association. “This November, FHPCA’s How We Care statewide campaign will continue raising awareness on the importance of end-of-life care and how your local hospice will work to meet your unique healthcare needs.”
The hospice organizations across the state of Florida provide physical, psychosocial, spiritual and emotional support to patients and their families.
