HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION
Every dollar raised through the Four Seasons Foundation or spent at the Hospice Home Stores goes directly to patient services at Four Seasons, allowing them to provide trusted care, regardless of the ability to pay. In addition to donating or shopping at the Home Stores, volunteering with Four Seasons or the Home Stores is another amazing way to help your community.
Four Seasons Foundation supports patients and families by securing donations and gifts that help provide quality care, regardless of ability to pay.
Whether your goal is to meet new people, become more involved in the community, or give your time in honor of the care we provide, there are many ways you can help.
Your donation of furniture, home goods, clothing and your patronage in our home stores in Hendersonville, Arden or Brevard help support the mission of Four Seasons.
Opportunities to Support Care at Four Seasons
Every dollar raised through the Foundation or spent at the Hospice Home Stores goes directly to patient services.
Four Seasons is committed to co-creating the best care experience for all patients, regardless of ability to pay. Your gift ensures that we can continue providing The Care You Trust. Below are the ways in which your gift may be used to support care.
AREA OF GREATEST NEED
By giving to the Area of Greatest Need you provide the support where it’s most needed. Sometimes our needs may be greater in one area and focus must be given toward that special need, or we might have a higher census of patients who need financial support. We will never turn anyone away for inability to pay for care and our generous donors make that possible.
Our Angel Fund makes hospice care possible so that everyone can live out their final weeks or months of life with comfort, peace and dignity regardless of their ability to pay. In addition, the Angel Fund also provides Palliative Care, Home Care, and Care Navigation services to those in need. We want everyone in our care to live every moment as fully as their circumstances allow and are grateful to our donors who support our Angel Fund.
WE HONOR VETERANS
This national program was designed to honor those nearing the end of life who served in the United States Armed Forces. Originally founded by the Veteran’s Administration in conjunction with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Four Seasons honors veterans under hospice care with special pinning ceremonies to recognize them for their service.
Our Grief Services team provides counseling and tailored support for a variety of grief situations, including traumatic death and unexpected loss. Your support provides these trusted services to anyone in the community grieving the loss of a loved one at no cost to them and regardless of whether their loved one was in the care of Four Seasons. Age-appropriate grief support significantly influences the well-being of children and teens in our community through our Compass Program.
When a hospital bed was delivered to the home of Lois Vera Cruz, her family realized that they did not have linens that would fit the twin size bed. After Lois passed in February, 2017, the family chose to show appreciation for the care she received by establishing the Lois’ Linens endowment fund which provides twin-sized linens and other special care items for in-home hospice patients.
Would you consider sharing your story?
Stories are personal, yet they can be powerful in helping us to connect, learn, and understand. Everyone has a story, and we would like to share yours with others who may be struggling with similar circumstances. It is our hope that through these stories they may find peace and comfort knowing they are not alone.
