The Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells will be filled with excitement and generosity on December 5th from 5:30-8:30pm as the Spirit of Life – Supporting the Hospice Journey event will once again be raising funds for the St. Clare Hospice House Resident Fund.
The St. Clare Hospice House is managed and operated by Home Health United, and provides a serene home-like environment for any hospice patients unable to remain at home for any reason.
The Resident Fund is important because Home Health United doesn’t deny Hospice House services to any HHU – Hospice patient regardless of their ability to pay. While Medicare and other insurances cover hospice services, room and board at residential facilities is not covered, and can exceed $200 per day.
"The Resident Fund helped so many people last year that it is actually depleted," explains Pam Godfrey, HHU Foundation Manager. "This year’s Spirit event is more important than ever to replenish that fund."
