The Palm Beach Post published a story about Trustbridge on Sunday June 17. This story was also distributed online. It is the same type of story they have done in the past, clearly intending to put our company in a bad light in the community.
The story relies on partial facts, unsubstantiated allegations by two former employees and outdated information. It questions the commitment of our leadership and denigrates our volunteers. While we provided The Palm Beach Post with extensive, factual information for their story, they chose to use only a minimal amount. We want our community to have the full facts regarding questions raised by the Post, and are offering them here. We hope you will take the time to read them.Read More
"People need to understand that hospice is about living,..."It's about living as well as you can when life has dealt you a bad deck of cards. Having your dignity, your quality of life, as little physical and emotional suffering as possible -- that's what hospice can do for people."
This article discusses the need for hospice care to become "open access" - to offer treatments for patient comfort that are not currently covered under the hospice Medicare benefit. FYI - Trustbridge is one of only 4% of hospices in the U.S. that admits patients to hospice care who need to continue palliative treatments for comfort. In 2017, we were able to provide extraordinary comfort measures (chemotherapy, radiation, intravenous medications and transfusions) to 807 patients thanks to the generosity of our donors!Read More
For more than 40 years, Trustbridge has made a difference in the lives of countless families in our community. When caring for our families, relationships are formed, bonds are created and trust is built. Because of this, we feel a responsibility to inform you of a national solicitation targeting our local community.
The Hospice Support Fund, located in Merrifield, VA, has been soliciting community members through personalized charity mailers. Their solicitation includes a plea for their 2018 Annual Fund Drive to support the nationwide effort to bring end-of-life home hospice care to all Americans.
We at Trustbridge Hospice Foundation want the community to know that this solicitation did not come from our organization, nor is Trustbridge Hospice Foundation affiliated with the Hospice Support Fund. Only donations made directly to Trustbridge Hospice Foundation support the special programs and services that Trustbridge provides our patients and families during their time of greatest need. For more information, please call us at 561-494-6887.
Thank you for your continued support.Read More
"Most prisons were never built to be nursing homes. Correctional officers often aren’t equipped with the necessary training, and medical staff can be spread thin. Here at the California Medical Facility, that’s where men like Lyman, Saephanh and Murillo come in. They are part of a cohort of about two dozen men called the Pastoral Care Service Workers. Most of them are convicted murderers serving life sentences who have been granted an unusual role: providing dignified deaths to their fellow inmates."Read More
