FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 2013 – Recently opened, The OpAL Foundation, exists to affirm the lives of hospice patients who cannot afford hospice care by providing the financial means for care at end of life and granting patients’ last wishes. The OpAL Foundation currently serves 11 counties in Idaho and Oregon.
“Having a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation allows Heart ‘n Home to serve all individuals whom are eligible for hospice, even when they do not have the financial security to pay for it. I am happy to say, Heart ‘n Home has never turned a patient away due to inability to pay for hospice care. Heart ‘n Home gives all donations to The OpAL Foundation. We are grateful for the donations our community gives because every dollar is well spent enhancing the quality of life for our friends and families. ” Said Cindy Lee, RN, CHPN, CHPCA, and CEO/Owner of Heart ‘n Home.
We are currently looking for additional board members and also accepting donations. If you are interested in volunteering for The OpAL Foundation please contact Todd Stice, Owner and Senior Vice President of Finance at Heart ‘n Home – 208-452-2663. Learn more about end-of-life care and hospice services.
Heart ‘n Home affirms life by providing emotional, physical, and spiritual support to our patients and to those who love and care for them. Also, find us on Facebook.
