Shineman Foundation Partners with Friends of Oswego County Hospice for Community and Professional Education

            OSWEGO, NY - The Friends of Oswego County Hospice are beginning a year-long education campaign regarding the benefits of Hospice care for people with a life-limiting illness.

            Made possible through a grant from the Richard S. Shineman  Foundation, this education program will target residents of Oswego County and the professional medical community.

            "Our goals with this program are to educate the community at large about the benefits of the family-centered care that Oswego County Hospice has been providing for 25 years, and to provide the medical community with the tools they need to refer patients to Oswego County Hospice," said Debbie Bishop, executive director of the Friends of Oswego County Hospice.

            The Friends of Oswego County Hospice are partnering with Step One Creative to develop a series of  educational and promotional materials that focus on the interdisciplinary care provided by Oswego County Hospice including nursing, social work, volunteers, home health aides and financial support if necessary.

            "The Shineman Foundation recognizes the remarkable service Oswego County Hospice provides and the profound assistance it has given to so many families," said Lauren Pistell, executive director of the Shineman Foundation.

            "We are delighted to partner with the Friends of Oswego County Hospice to educate and inform the community and hope that the grant will increase Hospice's capacity to help those in need," Pistell said.
