It takes a Community to support outstanding care Thank you for your years of support. Your gifts help us provide outstanding compassionate care for today’s families as well as for those to come. Taking care of our community has become increasingly costly due to cuts from Medicare. Over the past two years, our reimbursement was cut 14%, and as this newsletter goes to print, it’s likely we’ll be cut another 2%. In addition to these cuts, Medicare also added new regulations that are costly to implement. Again, it’s your support that allows us to continue providing the highest quality care, and in fact, expand our services through programs like our James Avery Center for Grief Support and Recovery and our new memorial garden.

Greg Pang, CEO

At times like these we are reminded of how grateful we are for the support of our community. Please join us on May 3 in Longview for our fundraiser gala, hospice rocks! All proceeds from this event support charity care to help our most vulnerable patients. Event information is on the back cover or contact Julie at 360.414.5406 or Thank you for being a part of our Community. Sincerely,

Greg Pang, MHA, CHCE CEO

Memory Cave records tender messages Entering the pitch-black Memory Cave is like stepping into a tiny elevator without lights. Then you notice the fluorescent black lights and colorful markings on the wall. In neon greens, pinks and blues, the hand-drawn messages call out remembrances of departed loved ones: “Miss you momma” “I love mommy I believe in you,” I will never forget you, dad,” “I love and miss you papa.” The Memory Cave is tucked inside the new James Avery Center for Grief Support and Recovery in Longview. Anyone may step into it and use the markers to remember a loved one. There is something profoundly healing about recording a loving tribute for all to see.

Legacy gift supports immediate needs Community Home Health & Hospice was one of three grateful Longview charities that received $242,356 from the estate of E. Kenneth Henderson. The majority of his estate will be used as strategic reserves for maintaining our margin of excellence in patient care. Part of Ken’s planned gift will provide seed money for a memorial garden adjacent to our new James Avery Center for Grief Support and Recovery in Longview. The memorial garden will be named for Ken. The garden work will begin this spring and be completed over the summer. Board President Dan Spjut said of Ken’s gift, “The outdoor memorial garden will be a community resource – located in an accessible, yet serene setting with water features, a children’s growing garden and rock garden. Open to the public, the garden will help community members heal from grief and loss. We are grateful beyond words.”

Community philanthropist Ken Henderson

Ken was loyal to the Pacific Northwest, an active community member and generous philanthropist. He appreciated the hospice care our agency provided to his friends and family members. He spent time with his mother in our Hospice Care Center in the early years when there were only four patient rooms. He supported patient care and expansion projects through ongoing contributions. He passed away in October 2008 at the Hospice Care Center in Longview.

“Ken was a generous, kind gentleman. He was raised that way.”

The Community Legacy Society recognizes those who make a planned gift to Community Home Health & Hospice through their will, trust or other estate plans. Ken became an automatic member of the Community Legay Society with his planned gift. For information about making a planned gift or to notify us of your support, contact Julie at 360.414.5406 or

Annual King family fundraiser a success! The third annual King family fundraiser held last month was a resounding success. The event was attended by more than 200 people and raised $10,442 for charity care. For the past three years, George King and his family have held an art auction and dance benefit in memory of matriarch Janice King who was cared for by Community. Over the years, their fundraiser has raised more than $35,000 for our agency. By all accounts, Janice enjoyed a good time and she would have definitely loved this year’s party.
