Hearts of Hospice Webinar Series

In a typical year, we put on a number of events to help educate our community about hospice care, palliative services, and bereavement. This year, those in-person events had to be canceled. To continue connecting with our community and providing valuable resources, we have created a webinar series, Hearts of Hospice.

WE ♥ OUR TEAM

We are incredibly grateful for our team and all of their selfless work in 2020. To show our appreciation, we have put together a short video.

Lora Ann Wiggins Bucket List

On June 14th, doctors gave Lora Ann Wiggins 8 weeks to live. But 11 weeks later, the Faith Hospice patient with stage 4 colon cancer is still going strong. She is using her last days crossing items off of her bucket list and teaching others how to live.

‘Champion’ Recognition: Rene Wheaton, MHHA Hall of Fame Recipient

Rene Wheaton, executive director of Faith Hospice, Holland Home’s hospice program, was honored with the Michigan Homecare and Hospice Association (MHHA) 2020 Hall of Fame award. Wheaton is the only medical professional in West Michigan and one of three in the state to receive the Hall of Fame recognition this year. The MHHA began honoring health care professionals with the award in 2014. Since then, there have been 20 individuals who have received the award.

Richard Tierney

We at Faith Hospice are saddened by the news of the passing of our former board member and long-time friend, Dick Tierney. As a board member for 9 years and board chair for 5 years, Dick was instrumental in the growth of Faith Hospice and the creation of Trillium Woods, the area’s first in-patient hospice facility. His kind and gentle spirit, giving nature, and business savvy made him an invaluable mentor to many of us at Faith Hospice. While we will miss his wisdom and generosity greatly, we are rejoicing in the knowledge that he is now living peacefully with our Lord.

Help the Helpers

In an effort to be as prepared as possible to continue to protect our high-risk population of seniors and staff, we are looking for donations of handmade masks and materials for making handmade masks. See how you can help!
