A Case for Masks from Dr. Flynn – Blue Ridge Hospice

Today's #WhyIWearAMask is brought to you by Dr. Flynn.

"Because of your social distancing, teleworking and mask wearing, our hospitals have been able to care for our fellow residents with COVID-19 effectively and the system has not been overwhelmed. The entire goal of flattening the curve has indeed been succeeding. That is worth noting and feeling pretty darn good about!"

Loss and Livestreams: End-of-Life in the Age of COVID - Loudoun Now

“Families want to be with each other and they’re not able to. It doesn’t meet the needs the way it would to be together,” she said “People are frustrated. Despite all of the difficulties, the thing that we keep talking about is that people are resilient. We’re all trying to reach out to each other and connect with each other, and we’re doing it the best ways that we know how. People are amazing. Life is so fragile but it’s also so strong.”

"Thank you for everything you did to help my mom during her final six months. You all made her comfortable, checked her vitals, visited with her, played music for her, prayed with/over her, monitored her meds, made sure she was clean so she could rest in her bed, and just sat with her. I felt so much better knowing all of you were caring for her. Please know that you have our deepest gratitude."

The Beginning of Blue Ridge Hospice...

When Helen Zebarth, RN, visited a hospital facility in England in the early 1970’s she witnessed the hospice philosophy for the first time. Although the patients would soon die, many were alert, engaged, and comfortable. This looked quite different from her experiences with dying patients in the US.

A few years later when Helen’s friend Gail Rodgers faced the death of her father, hospice services did not exist in The Shenandoah Valley and were little recognized in The United States. Seeing the need, Helen and Gail decided to bring the hospice experience to the region. In 1981, their determination created the foundation for Blue Ridge Hospice. Starting with just a few volunteers, Blue Ridge Hospice began “brightening life’s journey” for those nearing the end of life.

Now, more than 35 years later, Blue Ridge Hospice is a thriving not-for-profit healthcare organization with a robust staff and years of experience providing excellent hospice care to patients in the Northern Shenandoah Valley region. Helen Zebarth still serves on the Board of Directors.

Blue Ridge Hospice now provides care to the City of Winchester and counties of Frederick, Clarke, Warren, Shenandoah, Fauquier, and Western Loudoun.

Blue Ridge Hospice sets the standard for quality hospice care and is accredited by The Joint Commission. The Joint Commission inspects Blue Ridge Hospice for compliance with Medicare regulations, as well as other rigorous standards, at least every three years.

Thank you to the BRH staff for the compassionate care and service provided. The Flagg family.
I just wanted to express my and my family's gratitude for the care you provided for our father Sharley aka Shorty/Pete Morris the last month of his life. It was greatly appreciated. You also helped take care of my Mom Mary Morris 11 yrs ago and my 1st Daddy Ed Smith 5 1/2 years ago both of which passed from cancer. Your angels definitely mean alot to us
So proud of us, and our great work towards this!
Barb Kern July 9 To my Grandchildren...Every year at Christmas I have donated money in your names to St. Judes. For obvious reasons, this year I am donating to Hospice for Grandma Sal if that is alright with you...it is YOUR Christmas money!... the first time I started doing this I gave to the SPCA. every year after that it has been to St. Judes...I only hope none of my Grandchildren ever need their help! I DO, however, ALSO still donate to the SPCA as they are JUST as much in need as St. Judes! I'm thinking now I will split the donations ...... They won't all get as much, obviously, but Hospice, which is a new organization for me & my kids, was such an amazing help to me & Grama Sal. They are a marvelous non-profit organization. If you can find a bit of extra money (what the heck is EXTRA money?!) you outta send it on to Hospice if you can.
We recently saw a post that lap blankets were needed. Where are they taken to when completed?
I want to thank Blue Ridge Hospice for all the support they've given to me and one of my beloved family member Troy Berry that has passed. I have been very grateful for their kindness, it has helped me mentally and physically get through this tragic lost. Truly blessing to count on them.
Hello! I'm trying to make a furniture donation...can someone point me in the direction of who to get in touch with to schedule a pick up?
there's a nurse that was interested in mr. cangianos cats. I believe her name was silvia. if she sees this or somebody knows her please reach out as soon as possible I'd greatly appreciate it thank you.
I just want to give a shout out to the Blue Ridge Hospice staff for the excellent care they gave my cousin Patty Howard while she was there. May God bless each of you for your attentiveness. May she RIP now in the arms of Jesus.
