Can you donate to our Children’s Bereavement Program?

Help us help children heal following the death of a parent.

Please support our Children’s Bereavement Program. Your donation goes directly to provide this important program – families are never charged for their children to participtate in the program.

Grief in children can be profoundly different than adults. The scars caused by loss must be acknowledged so the process of healing can begin.

Our bereavement program is free to any child needing help processing loss.   It is free and open to all children regardless of whether they are from a “hospice family”.

Donate to fulfill a patient’s Bucket List request

The Hospice of Lake Cumberland Bucket List program seeks to help patients check off an important item from their own bucket list.

*Patients who enter care early and are able to be stabilized, are better suited for this activity.

Some examples of bucket list activities we have facilitated are: a father gets to see his sons “opening day” football game, even though it was over 3 hours away, (pictures attached), one man just wanted to take a ride in a convertible with the top rolled down and his dog by his side. 

Another wanted to go fishing one more time. 

A little girl, who loved balloons, had her home literally filled with balloons of every color, (pictures). 

 These are just a few examples of the Bucket List request we have been able to fulfill with the help of your donations.

Commemorate your loved one in the

Jean Waddle Care Center Memorial Quilt

Memorialize your loved one’s name in public art.

The Jean Waddle Care Center Memorial Quilt mural was painted by a local artist to remember those who have passed from this life.

To have the name of your loved one added to the quilt, make a one-time donation of $100 and inlcude the name of your loved one that you would like included in the mural, or mail a check to 100 Parkway Drive, Somerset, KY 42503 with JWCC Quilt and the name of your loved one in the memo.

Thank you for supporting the Hospice of Lake Cumberland and providing quality end of life care to others.

Examples of the JWCC Quilt:

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.
