Honoring special people who go above and beyond during end-of-life caregiving.
WHY ARE WE GIVING THIS AWARD? The Spirit of Compassion Award recognizes the importance of compassionate care during an end-of-life journey. The Award was inspired by our volunteers, staff, and family caregivers we assist. We know end-of-life care creates an emotional rollercoaster and imposes significant burdens on family and friends. Therefore we honor those who make a difference by offering hands-on care, moral support, respite relief, errand running, etc.
WHO CAN BE NOMINATED? Awards will be given in two caregiving categories (considered separately): (1) Compensated and (2) Uncompensated. Anyone who helped during an end-of-life situation can be nominated in one of these categories. Eligibility is not limited to families served by Hinds Hospice.
Anyone paid for providing end-of-life care can be nominated as a Compensated Caregiver. This includes staff employed by Hinds Hospice and other providers as well as compensated family members. To avoid bias, initials will be substituted for names during judging and a group of community members will select the recipients.
WHEN WILL THE AWARD BE PRESENTED? The two Award recipients will be honored, along with ALL nominees, at a special Spirit of Compassion event on Thursday, November 8, 2012. Details on time and place will be posted at a later date.
