SECU Hospice House Grand Opening June 24

May 25, 2012 - Bolivia, NC - Lower Cape Fear Hospice & Life Care Center is pleased to invite the community to the SECU Hospice House of Brunswick grand opening from 1 to 4 p.m. June 24 at 955 Mercy Lane SE off Old Ocean Hwy in Bolivia. Festivities include tours of the hospice care center, refreshments, and music.

SECU Hospice House is an inpatient hospice care center for patients in Brunswick County. It includes seven private patient and family suites, open courtyard gardens, a comfortable living room, a solace room, kitchen, dining, and laundry rooms–all designed to meet the needs of hospice patients and their visiting caregivers, loved ones, and families.

Hospice House offers medical and respite care in a comfortable, homelike setting. Most hospice patients are served in their home. Patients are admitted to a hospice care center for around-the-clock pain and symptom monitoring, for family members to gain care giving skills or receive rest from care giving, and if home care is not possible during the last days of life. Also, care centers serve as training centers for clinical students and offer educational programs on end-of-life topics.

Louie Lewis donated more than seven acres for the Hospice House site. WJ and Sibyl McLamb served as co-chairs of the Closer to Home capital campaign, which was funded by more than 3,000 donors. The total amount raised will be announced at the grand opening.

“We are profoundly grateful for the outpouring of support for SECU Hospice House. We want to share our excitement in enhancing the end-of-life care choices and bringing a care center closer to home for residents of the Brunswick County region,” says Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter President & CEO Laurie Bystrom. “We look forward to seeing everyone at the grand opening.”
