Accu-Care Cremation is proud to be a sponsor of this fundraising event. In its 9th year, the Lightbridge 5k raises critical funds to support the foundation’s hospice programs in the San Diego area.
Hospice provides terminal patients with the support and care they need as they are nearing the end of their lives. It also takes the healthcare role out of family members’ hands, a job that they all too often aren’t prepared to provide.
Hospice Care Options
There are a wide variety of hospice services that help reduce the burden and relieve the pain and stress that comes with a terminal illness. Hospice patients are cared for by teams of doctors, nurses, social workers, aides and volunteers around the clock. Individual programs are planned to maximize the comfort of every patient. The care is compassionate and nonstop.
The LightBridge Hospice Community Foundation in San Diego is an organization that provides additional hospice services and programs that are not typically provided by Medicare and other insurance providers. Some of the unique patient programs include:
Simple Gifts – Fulfilling dreams and wishes
Veteran Honor Ceremonies – Recognizing patients for their military service to our country
Integrative Therapies – -Providing supportive music, pet therapy, aromatherapy, etc.
Music and Memory Therapy – Bringing personalized music to those challenged by dementia and other diseases that cause cognitive impairment
Day of Respite – Giving care to caregivers
Care for Those in Need – Providing for those who otherwise have no hospice benefit
