Join us this holiday season for our

2021 Year End Giving Campaign

As 2021 draws to a close, we at Hospice of Lake Cumberland wish to thank you for the support you have shown to us. With your help, we were able to care for about 1000 patients from south-central Kentucky in 2021.

This year, our Year End Giving Campaign is being dedicated to our Children’s Bereavement Program. Our bereavement services are offered to our communities without charge. Any grieving child or adult is welcome to partake of our bereavement programs free; they do not need to be from a hospice family. These services have been especially vital during the pandemic as often people
have not been able to grieve in the normal way.

HLC has always provided free bereavement counseling for children, (and adults). The need to expand our children’s programs is great throughout the communities we serve. Our goal is to meet this need by expanding our children’s program. There are so many children within the counties we serve who have lost someone close – sometimes that someone is their caregiver. Please donate to our Children’s Bereavement Program. Your gift is tax deductible and will stay right here in your community and help some of our most vulnerable citizens learn to cope, find healing and make good life choices going forward.

All donations to Hospice of Lake Cumberland are tax deductible.

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

Can you donate to our Children’s Bereavement Program?

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”.

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.
