Program June 13: Hospice & Palliative Care: It’s About How You Live 

Our June 13th speaker, RCFC Member Nate Lamkin, came to Fort Collins from Massachusetts, where he served as a senior management member for Care Dimensions, the largest non-profit hospice in that state.  He has been the President of Pathways Care since May of 2017.  He started with the history of hospice starting in medieval Europe, and the modern start in the UK in 1967.  The first US hospice was established in Connecticut in 1973. 

Today there are 4382 Medicare certified hospice facilities in the US.  Lamkin indicated the average length of stay is 71 days, with the median stay 24 days, indicating most hospice engagements are long, but at least half are very short - less than 24 days.  He went on to note what hospice is NOT: abandoning hope, either hastening or prolonging death, over medication, or only for those actively dying.  Nate noted that hospice's core focus is on quality of life until the end, focusing on comfort care and assisting the person spend their remaining days where they consider "home".  

President Elect Steve Laine Kicks off Annual Funding Drive
President-Elect Steve Laine announced the start of RCFC's annual Financial Commitment Drive, noting that "We have always been generous with our time and talent.  It’s time think about what you can do in the ‘treasure’ department for next year".  Steve set a goal to increase support for Community Grants, Scholarships and all of the things RCFC does to impact people and our community by 10% this year.  Financial Commitment forms are due to Assistant Treasurer Bonnie Titley no later than May 9.
