Five Ways That Hospice Helps

The vast majority of Americans say what they want at the end of life is to die in their own homes, as comfortable and pain free as possible. The hospice philosophy is about making sure that a patient’s death experience reflects their wishes. To learn the five ways that hospice helps to deliver this, click here.

Hospice makes more meaningful moments possible. Hospice is showing the world that hospice is about more than care for the dying. Hospice and palliative care can make more meaningful moments possible, even when a person is facing a serious or even terminal illness. To see the difference this person-centered care can make, watch these families’ stories.

Crater Thrift Store Open

The Crater Community Hospice Thrift Shop officially opened its doors on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 in the formerly vacant space of our building at 3916 South Crater Road. Since that day we have welcomed hundreds of shoppers looking for great bargains. And they have found them! Thanks to the generosity of our community, CCH has received countless donations of goods to be sold in our shop. From furniture to knick knacks, kitchen goods to jewelry, from baby items to formal wear and wedding gowns plus shoes, books, movies, rugs, lamps, toys, mirrors, wall art, sports equipment —- items too varied and numerous to mention them all — it’s all here in the CCH Thrift Shop.

Come visit, shop at your leisure and get to know our Thrift Shop staff, Karen Sadler, Store Manager, and her assistant, Apryl Cox. We also have several talented and very dedicated volunteers who work our store, accepting and logging in donations of items, cleaning and prepping and merchandising displays. Our shop is open every Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM – 5PM and our stock changes daily. If you don’t see what you want today, come back again — that special something you are looking for might very well be found in our store today. Karen and her staff accept donations of merchandise from noon until 4PM on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Remember, all proceeds from the sale of items in our Thrift Shop are used to fund Crater Community Hospice’s services to families in the local communities. Visit the CCH Thrift Shop today and help support your community hospice, providing high quality care in your community since in 1995.
