Get Into the Spirit! Help HHU “Fill the Fund”!
On Thursday, December 4th from 5:30-8:30pm, you’ll want to be at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells for the annual Spirit of Life – Supporting the Hospice journey gala to benefit the St. Clare Hospice House Resident Fund!
This year, the gala will once again be a magical evening hosted by area favorites Greg and Karen DeSanto. The event will feature a scrumptious array of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, games and exciting prizes. Bid on fabulous silent auction items and play our version of Musical Chairs! There will be 40 players selected, so about 10% of guests will get to play!
Home Is Where Our Hospice Is
Home – what does it mean to you? To Bob H., home is the house he built, where he has been hanging his hat for the past 27 years. Home is where his family gathers and where his friends meet. Home is a house filled with his collection of elephants and military memorabilia from his father. Home is a garden growing a bumper crop of tomatoes. Home is where his heart is and home is where he wants to stay.
Making a Difference One Mile at a Time
On October 18, 2014 over 50 riders hit the road on their bikes and in their vehicles in support of Home Health United – Hospice. Hitting the Road for Hospice is a third party fundraiser organized by some of our dedicated Hospice Volunteers with a pinch of assistance from the HHU-VNS Foundation staff.
Here at HHU we are committed to providing the highest quality patient care. Everything we do is in an effort to make sure our patients and their families receive the best care and outcomes possible. Recently HHU was recognized for our high quality service by being named both a HomeCare Elite Top Agency and receiving Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) accreditation.
HHU Unites for United Ways and United Funds for South-Central Wisconsin
Home Health United recently wrapped up their employee pledge campaign raising money for the United Way and United Funds serving south-central Wisconsin communities. HHU has 15 offices located in eight cities and five counties and provides care to over 19 counties! So there is a good chance someone living in your city or town works for or has been cared for by HHU.
Help Us Build a Care Community!
Home Health United is starting our very own blog – Care Community. We are currently looking for community bloggers to provide content.
Care Community is intended to be a resource for families with aging parents, grandparents or other loved ones in southern Wisconsin. Often called the "Sandwich Generation," more and more people today are sandwiched between caregiving duties for multiple generations, commonly for their children and aging parents.
If you are interested in contributing to HHU’s Care Community or know someone who might be, please contact our Marketing Department at Info@hhuvns.org.

Dealing with Grief During the Holidays
Although the holiday season is often a time of family, fun and food, for some people it can be a time of mourning and grief for a loved one lost. The passing of a loved one is never easy. Whether it happened a month, year or decade ago, the holidays can sometimes be more difficult than the rest of the year. Learn More…
