Q10. Negative Impacts from COVID-19:

It has given us some challenges of meeting our clients needs and keeping them as safe as possible.  The fear of contracting the virus has minimized within the patients as we have shown them the safest practices necessary to keep their likelihood of contracting the virus minimal. 

Q11. Top Three Concerns:
The safety practices of our healthcare workers during there visits to our patients in their home.
Being prepared for the future not knowing how long this pandemic could last.
Having the most education and knowledge during these trying times of running a health care organization.

How Participation in Program Will Address Concerns:

We have used fund-raising in the past to assist our patients who need charity care that do not have any health insurance available to them.  We have not been able to do any of our fundraising events that we had planned for 2020, due to the pandemic.  We do not want any patient to be turned away for health care because they do not have health insurance.  Our goal is, and always has been, that our patients on Hospice would not have any out-of-pocket expenses for their end-of-life care.  The hardship of losing someone is difficult enough for families to bare.  That’s why we are applying for any and all educational avenues that feel will help us in the future.
