THE HONOR PROJECT
Columbus Hospice, along with our volunteers, developed a program to increase the quality of life for hospice patients and their family caregivers, by fulfilling a final “wish” for patients. The patient's families also benefit as it changes the atmosphere at a difficult time in their lives and gives everyone something to look forward to. “The Honor Project” also leaves positive memories for grieving family members.
The wish experience is an important adjunct to medical treatment. Volunteers who work with the program say the wish-granting process heightens their ability to see the best in others and their commitment to actively helping more people in need.
“The Honor Project” serves those patients receiving care from Columbus Hospice – all ages are served including children. Many are simple requests, such as:
DINNER AT A FAVORITE RESTAURANT
CELEBRATION OF AN ANNIVERSARY WITH A CANDLELIGHT DINNER
GOING TO A MOVIE
DECORATING THE HOUSE FOR CHRISTMAS
ATTENDING A SPECIAL SPORTING EVENT
“The Honor Project” is a self-sustaining program and needs funds to provide these wishes. If you would like to donate to this program, press the donate tab, on our home page, and designate your gift to “The Honor Project.”
