Hospice is about ensuring comfort, dignity and quality of life for the time we have left together and ideally, end-of-life care happens at home. But there are times when hospice patients have pain or other symptoms that are hard to manage at home. We can help, providing a home away from home at The Service League of Greenville Inpatient Hospice. Patients and families can be together as hospice staff work to make everyone comfortable. Join us on November 27th to learn more! We will have a drawing for a gift from Bailey’s Jewelers, a special visit from Santa, as well as light refreshments!
