World Hospice and Palliative Care Day
The theme for World Hospice and Palliative Care day this year is Compassionate Communities. A compassionate community is a community where the people publicly encourage, support, and celebrate care for one another during hard times. Individual and community compassion enhances quality of life and reduces suffering. Compassion is the foundation of healthy communities, and we all have a role to play to support each other through life and death.
