“What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.”
Spoken by Greek philosopher Aristotle over 2000 years ago, and still true today.
Here are some of our Bristol Hospice Volunteers learning more about our Bright Moment’s program, and also putting that knowledge to good use in making patient memory boards and then later delivering them. What a beautiful way to bring “Light to Life” for those struggling with the effects of dementia.
Last month, the Office of the Inspector General released two new reports following its investigation into hospice care in the U.S. the NHPCO responded to New OIG Reports on Hospice Care with a press release stating that, “NHPCO welcomes the opportunity to shed a light on high quality providers as well as those that fall short in providing appropriate care.”
At Bristol Hospice, compliance forms the backbone of the company and in light of these reports from OIG and NHPCO, we want to take this opportunity to share some of these compliance aspects which we consider makes us one of the “high quality providers”.

Hospice care, centers on the patient and family. The goal of the professionals at Bristol Hospice is to empower to make choices regarding care and assistance. The team serves as an advocate, helping to access the information and resources needed during this very challenging time.
“I cannot thank my Bristol team enough for all they did while my dad was dying. I don’t know what I would have done without your support! With Bristol by my side, his journey was made easier and I was comforted. A million thanks.”
~ A surviving family member
