GARNETT — Anderson County Hospital is offering hospice services. Hospice manager Carol Eisenbraun told the Anderson County Review that when people approach the end of their lives, the most important thing to them is connecting with loved ones. And after the patient’s death, the hospice team continues to provide bereavement care to family members for 13 months, she said. Many people are surprised to learn that hospice care is offered to anyone who is approaching the end of life and not just people with cancer, she said. Hospice chaplain Doug Overall said hospice is mostly about carrying out a patient’s final wishes. Hospice care is provided at no charge to people who are on Medicaid and Medicare. Volunteers are a big part of the hospice team, which includes nurses and office staff, she said. The team still is seeking volunteers and patient referrals. Call (785) 448-2753.
