‘OUR HOME IS YOUR HOME’. Ten years ago, I wrote an article for our newsletter with the theme focused around those words ‘OUR HOME IS YOUR HOME’. As I sit in the same office reflecting on those words, it’s hard to believe that The Truman House has been home to more than 4300 patients and their families. I still remember the day we served our first patient, May 21st, 2012, like it was just yesterday. Our staff, board and volunteers had been preparing for that day for several years and our first patient arrived with very little fanfare. It was just another day in which we had the opportunity to care for a patient and family who were dealing with an end of life situation. The only difference was that they were coming to our home. We have always considered it an honor to be welcomed into a patient’s home to care for them and their loved one. Now we wanted to honor them by allowing us to take care of them in our home. “Our Home is Your Home”
The peaceful, homelike setting of our Truman House inpatient facility allows families to spend quality time with each other, while professional clinical staff focus on your loved one’s well-being and comfort. Those served in the Truman House come from Tuscarawas, Stark, Carroll, Coshocton, Harrison, Holmes and Columbiana Counties.
Community Hospice is grateful for the many ways our community has supported us to achieve our mission “To provide peace hope and compassion to those we serve”. Community Hospice has always strived to make a difference in our community and in the lives of those we have the honor of serving.
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives as you journey through life. If I have learned one thing over the last 2 years – nothing is certain or guaranteed. We need to take each day and be grateful for what we have been given. Your gifts of time and money have ensured that the legacy of Community Hospice will continue to be here for those who need end of life care in our communities.
