In my role as a Community Liaison, I have the privilege of working with many community agencies who share a common mission with Hospice of Michigan–“to serve those who seek out their services, regardless of circumstance”. Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services, a non-profit organization serving the deaf and hard of hearing in our community, is one of those stellar agencies!
This past year, I had the opportunity to do a training on “end of life care” for their membership group–it was a wonderful learning experience for me, and raised my awareness tremendously to the needs of the deaf community, especially at end of life. Since then, I have had the good fortune to continue to collaborate with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services through community events aimed at raising awareness and advocating on the behalf of others.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services’ mission, to enrich the lives of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community by promoting equal communication, advocacy, social opportunities, community resources and education to all, is a mission everyone can get behind and support! At Hospice of Michigan, we are proud to be a community partner!
