Caldwell Hospice Serving the High Country received a proclamation from both the Town of Boone and the Town of West Jefferson, recognizing November as National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

Boone Mayor Rennie Brantz presented the certificate to Caldwell Hospice Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator Erica Andrews at the November Boone Town Council Meeting.

In West Jefferson, Mayor David Baldwin presented the certificate to Andrews and Clinical and Provider Relations Coordinator Kathy Eddy.

Both proclamations expressed thanks for the quality end-of-life care and services that Caldwell Hospice provides for the community.

For over 37 years, Caldwell Hospice has been providing compassionate, respectful, customized end-of-life care to anyone who needs it regardless of one’s ability to pay.

Last year, Caldwell Hospice provided more than $1.3 million in patient care for which there was no reimbursement.

Caldwell Hospice is the only not-for-profit hospice care provider in Watauga and Ashe Counties, and one of two in Avery.
