During the Christmas season, our thoughts turn to those we love – our family and friends who celebrate the joy of the season with us, and those who are no longer here, but whose memory burns brightly in our hearts.
Sioux Center Health Hospice and Home Care invites you and your family to honor your loved one this season by participating in the Loving Tree Project. Through your generous donation, you will receive a personalized ornament in memory of your loved one. These ornaments will decorate the Loving Tree in the Town Center at Sioux Center Health throughout the holiday season.
Your donation to the Loving Tree Project will assure quality care for terminally ill patients and their families in our area regardless of their ability to pay.
“I had my first experience with hospice 15 years ago when my mother died from Alzheimer’s disease. I took care of her for several months so she could live at home and Hospice offered their help and came on board with us the last few months. The help they offered in the way of understanding, advice, physical care and numerous other supports was invaluable and because of that experience I became a Hospice volunteer. I stepped aside 10 years later when we lost our daughter to a fatal infection. I intended to go back when I felt ready. I felt ready last spring and then we received the news that my husband had a cancer that was most likely going to take his life in a ver y short time. We moved from Minnesota to Iowa to be near family and I went back to Hospice, not to volunteer, but to once again accept the help they offered so I could take care of him at home. I will always be grateful to God for Hospice and for the loving care of the staff who work for the organization.” ~ Mary Ploegstra
