Suncrest Hospice of Colorado-Pueblo, A Bristol Hospice Company, participated in the Safety of Seniors Conference sponsored by the Senior Resource Development Agency on Tuesday, September 17.
It was our great honor to present at this event attended by approximately 200 people in the community of Pueblo. Our Community Liaison, Richelle Lucero, spoke on the “Myths and Facts” of hospice. Richelle received great feedback as to theeducation provided to the attendees.
Seniors received a warm welcome from Steve Nawrocki, Executive Director and valuable information from the Pueblo Police Department, the Alzheimer’s Association, Matter of Balance, Advanced Directives courtesy of 211 and a fun presentation by SRDA Lifeline. Our lunchtime entertainment was Rick Blessing, with a Frank Sinatra tribute.
What a fun filled day and a wonderful community event. Bristol Hospice companies make a great effort to better the communities they are in, and Suncrest Hospice of Colorado, Pueblo is no exception.
Our senior citizens have contributed so much to our communities and helped make them what they are today. National Senior Citizens Day is the day to show them our appreciation and support and recognize their accomplishments. It’s also a time to help raise awareness of various issues that affect senior citizens. Do you have an elderly person in your life that you love and appreciate? August 21 —National Senior Citizens Day — is the day to let them know how much you care about them.
The management team of Optimal Hospice Care, A Bristol Hospice Company in Bakersfield, had the wonderful opportunity to cook breakfast for the campers at the Optimal Hospice Foundation Kids camp this past week.
With hands covered in bacon grease or pancake batter, the team was able to make an impact through their act of service for the children at camp. We have such a great team of caring professionals, who always go above and beyond.
Everyone had a great time, and all are looking forward to doing it again next year!
