Open House Scheduled For
Hospice of Robeson
"The hospice caregiving team
cares for the whole person — men
tal. spiritual, emotional, and physi
cal." said Miriam Edwards, direc
tor of Hospice of Robeson. "Our
program is one that is primarily
based in the home and treats the
person, not the disease; focuses on
the family, not the indi\ idual; and
emphasizes the quality of live, not
the duration."
Hospice of Robeson along with
hospices across the counttv’ joins
Congress and President Bill
Clinton this November in celebrat
ing "Hospice...when caring mat
ters most." the theme for this year's
National Hospice Month.
Established in 1986 by Southeast
ern Regional Medical Center. Hos
pice of Robeson is the only pro
vider of hospice care in the county.
During the past two years. Hospice
has e.xperienceda large increase in
admissions, according to Edwards.
Much of this is due to the in
creased awareness in the commu
nity about the availability of hos
pice care locally and the range of
seix’ices provided here. "Our hos
pice stair is available 24 hours
each day. 7 da>'s a week to do
presentations for groups or indi
viduals." Edwards added.
What matters most to terminally
ill patients and their families? The
answer most often given is the type
of care they receive. AecoTd’.r.g Vo
a 1993 study conducted by Louis
Harrisand Associates. Inc.. Ameri
cans prefer the type of in-home
care most associated with hospice
care by an ovenvhelming 79 per-
ccnt-14 percent margin. Accord
ing to a recent Gallup Poll, nine
out of ten Americans sav they would
prefer to be cared for in the famil
iarity and comfort of their own
home or a family member's home
if they were diagnosed with a ter
minal illness.
In observance of National Hos
pice Month. Hospice of Robeson
has scheduled an open house on
Monday. November21 at 7:30 p.m.
at 2002 N. Cedar St- In Lumberton,

nator of volunteer services. "Wc
