Our Charity Bib Mission

What our charity will do with the donations raised through the Boilermaker Charity Bib Program:

Hospice & Palliative Care is the only provider of hospice services for two and a half counties which equates to an over 3,200-mile geographic area. Because we cannot be at someone’s home immediately when they have an issue Telehealth/Telemedicine technology offers a viable solution to improve access and quality of care for hospice patients in rural settings and in the homes of more complex patients. Time and communication are vital when patients and their caregivers are suffering. The use of Telehealth/Telemedicine is not intended to replace the “hands-on” visit, but rather improve care by adding immediate remote visualization. Telehealth/Telemedicine visualization enhances comfort care during a crisis. The importance of time is critical when providing hospice care, and we know that technology can be used effectively to address time and communication concerns. Most commonly, patients are experiencing breakthrough symptoms such as pain, breathlessness, anxiety or nausea, which occur between doses of the patient’s scheduled medications.
