It is the mission of the participating hospices to provide quality care for adults and children with life threatening illnesses. That care extends to their families both during the patient's final months and beyond. Whether this care is given in one's home, a nursing home, or hospital, our hospices provide the patient and the family physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support.
The goal of the hospice regatta is to raise money for our participating, not for profit, hospices, and to raise public awareness. We believe that the last months, weeks, and days of life should be as meaningful and filled with as much love and caring as possible. To this end, we are committed to help ensure that hospice care is available to all who seek it, regardless of ability to pay.
