Hospice - It's About Living
If you had six months to live, you’d want to spend that time with the people you love, doing the activities you enjoy, in the places where you’re most comfortable.
That’s exactly what we want for you.
At Hospice of Chenango County, we believe that you matter until the last moment of your life. That’s why we provide compassionate end-of-life care for you and your family to help make choices that are right for you. We’ll do all we can to help you fulfill the dreams you’ve always had, whether it’s to attend your son’s wedding or to hold your first grandchild.
Whether you have a terminal illness and need palliative care, seek homecare, or counseling to deal with death and dying, Hospice of Chenango County can provide it.
As your health changes, your hopes may change:
- You hope that you will still be able to get out and about and enjoy your friends.
- You hope that you’ll remain comfortable.
- You hope that your questions will be answered honestly.
- You hope that the medical bills won’t cripple you financially.
- You hope that your loved ones will get excellent grief support during their bereavement.
- We provide that hope to so many families.
Funding for Women's Seminar
The chairman of the New York State Funeral Director's Association, Richard Sullivan, travelled to Norwich to present a check to Hospice in the amount of $1,800. The money comes from philanthropic activities of the Director's Association under the umbrella of The Tribute Foundation. This foundation is dedicated to supporting education, outreach and research programs that advance the public's understanding of end of life issues.
The grant money will be used to put on a first of its kind event. On Saturday, November 23rd Hospice staff and guests will present an all-day seminar dedicated to women's grief and emotional healing. There will be a keynote speaker, followed by morning and afternoon break out sessions. Body, mind, and spirit issues will be addressed. The event will take place at the SUNY Morrisville building in Norwich. The Women's Grief and Healing Seminar will be free to all women in Chenango County, and lunch will also be provided.

Planning Your Future Community Forum
On the evening of Thursday, October 17th, Hospice & Palliative Care of Chenango County sponsored the Planning Your Future Community Forum at the Guernsey Library Community Room in Norwich. The forum was a venue for community members to learn about resources available to them from area organizations and businesses regarding housing, health, financial, and legal issues.
Thank you to the ladies and gentlemen that spoke to community members, handed out information, and answered questions. Thank you also to our community members and neighbors who attended.
