  • Hospice care is based on providing quality of life with special focus on comfort and pain control. Registered nurses are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Hospice patients have a life-limiting illness and life expectancy of six months or less.
  • Lights of Love proceeds help Hospice of Evangelical provide compassionate care to terminally-ill patients and their families.

2022 Honoring Caregivers

Throughout the years, our Hospice of Evangelical staff and volunteers have been touched by the patients, families, and caregivers we have met. Each person who has cared for a loved one, gives of themselves to ensure physical care is provided, autonomy respected, and the last phase of life lived to the fullest.

Our 2022 Lights of Love Honorary Chairperson is Tracie Diehl, whose aunt Virginia Hackenberg, lovingly known as Aunt Ginny, received her care through Hospice of Evangelical. Hospice staff members who knew them, considered it a privilege to witness the love and compassion shared between Tracie and Virginia. At the height of COVID-19 restrictions, Tracie found herself unable to visit Virginia often, except through the window of her apartment. Tracie accepted support from Hospice including nurses, aides, and social workers to meet Virginia’s changing physical and emotional needs. Tracie found solace in the regular communication from staff regarding Virginia’s status and appreciated the emotional support she was provided as a grieving niece.

We hope you will join us in honoring our caregivers and their loved ones who were impacted by the Hospice of Evangelical care experience. Your gift to Lights of Love will help Hospice of Evangelical continue to provide compassionate end of life care for our patients, and much needed support services for families and caregivers.
