WINNSBORO — Rotarian Sam Arnette Jr. focused his program on hospice care and since his wife Katie works for United Hospice, that was a good fit.
Katie Arnette is the volunteer coordinator for United Hospice and Emma Riley is the bereavement coordinator for them. Both women participated in the program presentation and answered some frequently asked questions about hospice care while dispelling many myths of hospice care.
Contrary to beliefs, hospice is not only for people with cancer and not only for dying people. United Hospice provides many services for patients and families that are coping with the end stages of chronic diseases.
The United Hospice Foundation also facilitates Camp Cocoon, a safe and fun-filled one-day camp for children ages 7 to 17 who have experienced the death of a loved one.
