Culinary and musical pairings to support Hospice of Cincinnati


Hospice of Cincinnati — the only nonprofit hospice within Cincinnati and the fourth oldest in the nation — offers services like grief support, massage, art, music and pet therapy to deliver meaningful, end-of-life care to clients and their families.
 
If the nonprofit’s services are close to your heart, you have the opportunity to show your support Aug. 13 at Gourmet Melodies — a fundraiser organized by the Bethesda Foundation. Food and music pairings will begin at 7 p.m.
 
It’s one of the Bethesda Foundation’s biggest fundraising events.
 
“Gourmet Melodies helps Hospice of Cincinnati continue to provide superior end-of-life care for those who need support in our community,” says Andy Swallow, president and CEO of the Bethesda Foundation. “Funds raised from this event help Hospice of Cincinnati continue to provide comfort and a higher quality of patient and family engagement.”
 
Hospice of Cincinnati offers both in-home and in-patient care and support during a time when it’s needed the most.
 
According to Hospice of Cincinnati's Chief Marketing Officer Janet Montgomery, terminal or life-threatening illnesses create feelings of isolation and helplessness.
 
“When this happens, a care team can be there to support you along the way, helping make today the best it can be,” Montgomery says. “Hospice is about living — and creating the best day today. Most of us want to die at home. Hospice provides the care, medicine, equipment and services you need to stay at home — surrounded by people and things you love.”
