    Hospice funds

    Music and Massage Therapy
    These programs provide physical and emotional relief for patients and families but are not reimbursed by Medicare or private insurance. 

    This fund provides financial relief for patients and their families helping to purchase items like groceries, utility bills or funeral expenses.

    Wedum Residential Hospice
    You can support a variety of needs for patients and families that choose J.A. Wedum Residential Hospice.

For a gift of $250 or more, donors qualify for a brick to engrave in memory of a loved one permanently placed at Wedum as a lasting tribute.
    • Honoring Veterans Fund similar to the Wedum Hospice Compassion Fund but specifically for veterans. The Honoring Veterans Fund helps veterans with room and board expenses at the J.A. Wedum Residential Hospice.
    • Food for Families Fund helps provide comfort to families of hospice patients with home cooked meals available throughout the day
