Spark of Joy – a weekly mailing/delivery program to our patients and their families. This program allowed us to collaborate with multiple small, local businesses to bring joy to our patients when Covid compromised our in-person visit.
Hospice of Anchorage Resource Center – the pandemic allowed us to spend focused attention on renewing this long dreamed of project. The cornerstone of the Resource Center is our library. We have hundreds of books available to the community free of charge. Books are available in each of the following subjects: caregiving, child loss, children's grief, chronic illness, dementia, end of life, grief, and life review/after a death planning.
Loan Closet – the DME needs of the community didn't stop because of Covid. Folks still needed wheelchairs, commodes, incontinence supplies, and more. With a new, curbside pick-up and drop-off, we could meet our community's immediate needs safely.
Electronic Medical Record – say goodbye to paper charts. Generous support from the business community enabled us to shred our paper charts and move to our first-ever electronic case management program.
Navigating the Holidays – a well-loved tradition every November at Hospice of Anchorage is to partner with all the hospices in town and put on an event called "Navigating the Holidays," available for free to anyone in this community who wants a little help after having lost a loved one. This year we boxed up Navigating the Holidays and delivered it right to the homes of those in need.
