Rincon Band of Luiseño Mission Indians Supports The Elizabeth Hospice
The Rincon Band of Luiseño Mission Indians presented The Elizabeth Hospice with a $5,000 grant in support of the nonprofit’s hospice and palliative care program and bereavement services for all ages. They have provided more than $46,000 in grants since 2002 to support the organization’s nonprofit mission in providing medical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and families at the end of life.
“We are humbled by the continued generous support from the Rincon Band of Luiseño Mission Indians that will enable The Elizabeth Hospice to provide hospice care and grief support to those in need regardless of their ability to pay,” says Jan Jones, President and CEO of The Elizabeth Hospice.
Hospice care uses a team approach in caring for individuals facing a life-limiting illness, also providing support for their families and caregivers. Hospice care is usually provided in a patient’s home or wherever a patient calls “home” such as in. assisted living, skilled nursing, or residential care facilities. The Elizabeth Hospice provides its comprehensive care services throughout San Diego and the Inland Empire. More information is available at www.elizabethhospice.org.
