Ice cream, art, chocolate and yoga are only a few of the ways the Southwest Florida community can celebrate National Hospice Month and support Hope Hospice in November.

Hope Hospice has partnered with local businesses such as Bistro 41, Norman Love Confections, and California Pizza Kitchen to create “Celebrate Life and Give Hope,” a month-long offering of events and programs supporting Hope Hospice.

A portion of the proceeds from the month’s activities directly benefit Hope Hospice, helping the nonprofit organization continue its mission of providing comfort and care for people in life’s final chapter and their families. Hope’s special care is available to everyone, regardless of illness or ability to pay.

Events are scheduled throughout the month and are free and open to the public. Full details, including dates, times and locations, are available at

“National Hospice Month provides us with an opportunity to help our friends and neighbors in Southwest Florida understand and support the unique brand of care that Hope Hospice offers,” said Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services. “We’re truly grateful to all the partners who are helping make this such a meaningful outreach program in the community.”
