In celebration of National Hospice Month, Brewton Mayor Ted Jennings signed a proclamation recognizing National Hospice Month, while Covenant Hospice staff looked on.
The mayor and the city of Brewton will join the hundreds of cities, and states in observing the month of November as National Hospice Month, and will actively encourage the support and participation of friends, neighbors, colleagues, and fellow citizens in Covenant Hospice activities and programs now and throughout the year.
This local awareness campaign is part of a broader national campaign launched by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization reminding people that hospice is not about how you die, but how you live. There will be a range of activities across the country throughout November focusing on living as fully as possible up until the end of life.
