News Community Kiwanis Club members tour future Hospice House

Elise Boren and Michele Alderson speak to group of Kiwanis members in the room that will eventually serve as the living room of the Hospice House.Michele Alderson, president for the Hospice House Foundation of WNC, Inc., presented the future Hospice House in Franklin to the Franklin Kiwanis Club Tuesday, Oct. 8. After meeting in the living room of the future Hospice House, Kiwanis members toured the facility. The future Hospice House needs to raise $2.2 million to be able to receive a $1 million matching fund donation offered by the State Employees Credit Union. The future Hospice House in Franklin plans to offer a wide range of services for terminally ill persons approaching their final days and to relieve the burden for families caring for these patients. These services will also be available to patients requiring end of life services who have no family or other support systems.

Additions will be made to this homelike facility and will provide a comfortable and pleasant environment where families can come and prepare meals and sit around a warm fireplace with their family member who requires this care. The Hospice House will have a chapel, a children’s media center and a playground for visiting children, bedrooms with family photos, the ability for residents to keep pets, and much more. Hospice patients will be cared for by a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, CNA service providers, and other services directed specifically to the patient’s needs.
