Event Sponsor:  AIM Hospice located in Rockport, Texas is more than traditional healthcare. Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible.  Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life.

Since November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, hospices across the country are reaching out to raise awareness about important care issues for people coping with life-limiting illness. As part of the awareness effort, AIM Hospice will host this community event.  This event is being held to raise awareness and help people learn more about hospice and palliative care.

“Being a hospice volunteer is an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life.  I get way more out of it than they do.”  -  AIM Hospice Volunteer.  

“I work with angels every day.  The compassion our nurses’ show for each patient and their families, is amazing!”  - AIM office manager/ volunteer coordinator

“Hospice was there with my dad and allowed him to die in peace and dignity.  I owe them so much. They’ve been a true blessing.” – Family member of a hospice patient
