Calling all Campers!
Children ages 6 to 17 who have experienced the death of a loved one within the last two years are invited to attend a weekend overnight camp of therapeutic fun and group process organized by our Full Circle bereavement staff and volunteers.

Camp Aloha will be held May 2 through May 4, 2014 at the New Ebenezer Retreat Center in Rincon, and is funded in large part by the generosity of the Kaminsky Automotive Group.  Click here  to read more and/or complete a camper application, or for more information contact bereavement counselor Barbara Moss at Full Circle at 912.303.9442. 
How we use Hospice House

Many long-time Hospice Savannah supporters remember the days when patients could stay at Hospice House for weeks or months on end. Increased scrutiny from Medicare has meant changes that are sometimes hard to explain to our patients and families. 

The good news is that exhausted caregivers can still enjoy a break of up to five nights by having their loved ones come in for Respite Care. Click here to find out about the other two "levels of care".   
Last Chance to enjoy the Tropics!

Victoria Collett's tropical watercolors will hang in the Hospice Savannah Art Gallery  through the end of March. Don't miss seeing her beautiful work.  A portion of sales will benefit Hospice Savannah.
Six Tips for Caregivers

1.    Ask for help!  When friends and family say, "What can I do?", ask them to stay with your loved one while you visit with friends, take a nap, get your teeth cleaned, read your book, go to the beach...

2.    Organize all medical and legal information in a file or binder so should a crisis arise, you can easily access all relevant information.

3.    Ask for help!  Ask to speak with a social worker at the hospital/clinic treating your loved one to inquire about community resources that can help you financially, emotionally, spiritually. 

4.    Educate yourself about your loved one's condition. Don't hesitate to ask the medical personnel involved in your loved one's treatments for a clear and concise explanation of the diagnosis and what you can expect in the future.

5.    Ask for help!   When your Pastor or Rabbi says, "What can we do?", ask for someone to stay with your loved one while you go to your swim/yoga/knitting classes.  Ask if some of the church members could prepare meals to put in the freezer so you don't have to cook every day.

6.    Ask for help!  Your loved ones are depending on you.  You must care for yourself first so you have the energy to care for them!
