Are you working today? If so, WE APPRECIATE YOU! In celebration of Thanksgiving and National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, we would like to show how truly THANKFUL we are for all of the dedicated hospice and palliative care providers who are delivering care to those facing the end of life over the holidays. You’re the heart of hospice!
With that being said, today we would like to brag about you. If you’re on Twitter, take a selfie and tag it with the #HospiceMonth. We’ll retweet you to show America that hospice is always there to help patients and their families – especially on the holidays!
Please include your profession, your state, and the program you work for. Remember when you post your photo, it will be shared publicly, so be respectful of HIPAA- no patients! Pics of you in your car, or at your desk, or with your fellow workers are all perfect. Are you trudging through the snow or rain? Show us! Are you on the subway or bus on your way to see patients? We wanna know!
Here is an example picture and post (and now you know what Lauren’s desk looks like!):
“Hi everyone, this is me, hard at work as the Advocacy & State Relations Manager at the Hospice Action Network in Alexandria, VA, on #Thanksgiving, bc #hospice is always there! #HospiceMonth #hpm
Again, thanks for your wonderful work and dedication- we hope someone somewhere is saving you a plate of turkey! Gobble Gobble.
