OUR STORIES - Kim
Kim was a 41 year-old patient with metastatic cancer. The Foundation helped provide for her family as she transitioned into hospice care and during the few months she spent in home-hospice care. Kim was thoughtful enough to send us a note expressing her gratitude before she passed away.
“I so appreciate the Foundation’s help paying utilities and keeping food on the table for my kids so we can be at home together these last few months.”
Kim’s situation was not typical of hospice patients, but it required an immediate and compassionate response.
The Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation partners with all hospice providers throughout the Upper Cumberland to address critical charitable needs of hospice patients. Avalon, Caris, CRMC, Gentiva, Heritage Point, Hospice of Cumberland County, Senior Life Management, and Upper Cumberland Hospice all utilize the Foundation’s Hospice and Palliative Care Fund.
The Hospice and Palliative Care Fund at Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation provides direct assistance to uninsured, and under-insured hospice and palliative patients throughout the Upper Cumberland. Working through area social workers and case managers at various hospice organizations and medical centers, the program is as responsive as possible to the needs of patients and families in our community.
