What Do Your Donations Support?

Prairie Home Hospice & Community Care is very fortunate to receive strong support from individuals, businesses, and other organization in the communities we serve. Typically, about 17% of our budget comes from donations, memorials, fundraising or other community support. The support we receive is very critical to the work we do and the quality of hospice care and services we provide. Quite simply, we could not do what we do or provide the same quality of care we provide, without the generous support of the communities we serve. It is what sets us apart and allows us to continue to provide a traditional brand of hospice that keeps the focus on the patient and family…always.

How Do Donations Make a Difference?

Donations allow us to provide the level of personal care and attention that hospice patients and their families need, deserve, and have come to expect from us.

Our care teams are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients. We have an RN on call 24/7 and if the RN is not able to take a call, it is our goal to return calls within 15 minutes whenever possible.

We provide staffing levels that allow our care staff to take the time they need with each patient and family, giving them the personal care and attention they need.

The patient to staff ratio at our hospice houses never exceeds more than 3 patients per staff, allowing staff to provide the personal care and attention that each patient needs.

 

Donations allow us to provide other services within the community.

We host free grief support groups every spring and fall, which are available to anyone in the area who has faced the loss of a loved one.

We host a monthly grief support luncheon that is open to anyone in the area who wishes to participate.

We provide bereavement services for free to anyone who may be struggling with the loss of a loved one.

We provide grief support to students in the area when called upon.

We provide informational and educational forums throughout the year on issues related to terminal illness, hospice, chronic disease management, palliative care, health care directives, and other related topics. These forums are generally free and open to anyone who would like to participate.

Donations help to support a level of special care and attention that is not required, but we feel is important to the well-being of our patients.

We Honor Veterans – is a program that honors patients who served our country. It allows us the opportunity to thank veterans for the service they have given to their country; provide other volunteer veterans to visit with the veteran patient; train staff to understand ways in which the veterans’ service may impact his/her health care needs today; and provide a memorial book for veterans’ family.Enrichment Services – are services that we make available to our hospice patients that go above and beyond what is required, based on the patients’ needs and preferences.

Enrichment Services may include massage therapy, pet therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, salon services or etc. We also encourage and support celebrations and special events that bring families together.

Donations allow us to provide financial assistance to families who are not able to cover the full cost of hospice care, through our Family Assistance Fund. 

For over 32 years, the support of a generous and caring community has allowed us to honor our commitment to ensuring that patients in our community who need hospice care receive the care they need, regardless of their ability to fully pay for the care they receive from us.

We have received grant funding from:

 Otto Bremer Foundation 

Southwest Initiative Foundation

Marshall Community Foundation

Lyon-Lincoln Electric Trust, Inc
