While so much in the world is changing because of the coronavirus pandemic, a very positive note is that the world is seeing an outpouring of support to medical professionals and other essential frontline workers.  Likewise, the support for our foundation and other charitable organizations has been strong, in spite of the fact that so many families are facing almost insurmountable financial challenges.  In the months ahead, as we struggle to reach a blessed new normal, please know that the Foundation for End of Life Care will continue to support the special needs of hospice patients and their families.  We are able to do that because of the generosity expressed in the donations that you continue to give.  You have touched the hearts of so many; and, our gratitude is overflowing.  We will get through Covid-19 together!




Capital City Hospice has become one of the fastest-growing and successful hospice care companies in the Midwest. The leadership team believes in creating a family atmosphere and their mission is to provide the best end-of-life care in Central Ohio that their patients, and families deserve.  The caregivers and their management team serve hospice patients and their families in several counties in Central Ohio; and, they know, as we do, that the needs of the hospice patient and their family go beyond the medical care and attention  the patient receives.  They share in our mission to support hospice patients and their families with financial grants to help with the day-to-day monthly living expenses not covered under the Medicare benefit.
