Health care is expensive. The financial pressure of health care plans can weigh heavily on an individual and their family. At times in life, when attentive medical care and support is crucial, health bills should be the last thing on your mind.

Hospice of Lake Cumberland is a registered non-profit organization that offers various hospice and palliative care services for patients seeking end-of-life or illness support. We operate independently of medical aid systems to ensure that our patients will always receive the best care from professionals, despite their financial status. It is our highest value to serve, and we will never turn away a patient for their inability to pay.

We rely on funding and contributions from our donors, who, for the last 30 years, have supported us every step of the way.

If you’d like to donate to the Hospice of Lake Cumberland, know that your contribution will be used to make the last days of someone’s life more comfortable and pain-free.

Your gift is more than money. It is a walk in the fresh air on a sunny day, it is a peaceful nights sleep spent without ache or discomfort, it is a hug, a laugh, one last conversation.

Give the gift of another day. Donate to the Hospice of Lake Cumberland.

To meet increased patient demand

We must expand the Jean Waddle Care Center.

A patient comes to the JWCC when their symptoms are too difficult to manage in a home setting, or when the patient's condition is too fragile to transfer out of the hospital. Care is provided around the clock by a team that is trained in symptom management and end-of-life care. Family support is also provided.

  • The Jean Waddle Care Center is located on the 4th floor of Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital
  • Space is rented and privately maintained by Hospice of Lake Cumberland. We are currently seeking funds to increase the amount of space we rent to meet the increased, ongoing need.

Bequests or Estate Gifts

We all want to leave a legacy behind, something that reflects our personal values and honors others. A planned gift, sometimes called a “bequest” or willed gift, allows those making end-of-life decisions to create that legacy through giving. For more information on arranging a bequest or estate gift, call 1-800-937-9596.
