Lake Cumberland

At our June 15, 2015, meeting, Euretha McQueary, MSW, CSW, Executive Director of Hospice of Lake Cumberland presented the many services of Hospice. Hospice of Lake Cumberland offers compassionate care to patients and families struggling to cope with a life-threatening illness. Hospice understands the emotions surrounding a life-threatening illness and can help put them in perspective.

Hospice is a philosophy of care which: seeks to enable patients to continue an alert, pain-free life, assists in managing symptoms to ensure comfort and dignity, affirms life and does not hasten or postpone death, treats the person rather than the disease, promotes self-determination, as patients and their family make their own decisions, provides a holistic approach, encompassing compassionate physical care, emotional and spiritual support.
