Hospice Circle of Love Tree of Life Celebration Planned

Hospice Circle of Love’s annual Tree of Life Celebration will help area residents remember loved-ones who are no longer with them. Participants can obtain personalized silver or gold bell ornaments in memory of a family member or friend, for a $25.00 tax deductible donation. The ornaments will be hung on a trio of Christmas trees featured at the event.

Hospice Circle of Love patients who have died in the last year will be included at no charge to the families. Participants will take their ornaments home following the celebration, which will be held December 16th at 3:00 PM. The event will take place in a new location this year, on the second floor of the Central National Bank Center in the Nick Benson Ballroom. Tree of Life will include the reading of the names on the trees, Christmas music, a spiritual message and a cookie and punch reception.

“Tree of Life is something our staff looks forward to every year. It is a special opportunity for the community to come together in remembrance of their loved one’s while giving us an opportunity to reconnect with the families we have served over the years,” commented Hospice Circle of Love Director Chad Caldwell.

The money raised with this event will go towards patient care for those who don’t have a Medicare or insurance benefit for hospice. Hospice Circle of Love serves terminally ill patients within a 60 mile radius of Enid.

To order a Tree of Life ornament, stop by the Circle of Love office at 314 South Third in Enid or call (580) 234-2273.

Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

Hospice Circle of Love is seeking volunteers to provide comfort and compassion to hospice patients, help out in the office and lend a hand with fundraisers.
A volunteer training class has been scheduled for the first two Thursdays in February.  It will take place February 1st and February 8th from 9 to Noon at the Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third. Volunteer recruits need to attend both sessions.

“Our volunteers make a significant contribution to our operation. We are so grateful for all that they do, as are our hospice families. Whether they are reading to a patient in the nursing home or visiting with one in the home while their caregiver runs errands, they provide an invaluable service,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson.

All hospice volunteers are required to go through a training class. Areas covered include details about job duties, the history of hospice, privacy rights, family dynamics, infection control, psychological issues surrounding death and dying, physical symptoms and more.

To obtain a volunteer application, call 234-2273.
