The special offerings for February have been designated by the Congregation Council to be donated to the Rock River Hospice and Home. The in-patient facility that also houses the administrative offices for the organization was built in 2017 and is a gift to our community that was sorely needed. Rock River Hospice & Home is a free-standing, community-based, non-profit hospice serving five counties in Northern Illinois, including Whiteside, Lee, Carroll, Ogle, and Bureau counties. For more than 38 years, Rock River Hospice & Home (formerly Hospice of the Rock River Valley) has provided compassionate quality hospice care regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. The focus of the organization includes:
- Keeping the patient comfortable in his/her own home or place of residence.
- Helping the patient and family gain a sense of control and competence.
- Promoting the patient’s and family’s dignity, autonomy, and right to privacy.
- Enhancing the time the patient and family share.
None of us know when our family may need the services provided by this organization. Consider a generous donation to help others receive compassionate care in their time of need.
