2019 Angel Ornaments

Each year, Hospice & Palliative Care of the Piedmont provides a special and unique way in which hospice families, as well as community members, pay tribute to their loved one’s memory. This year, we are pleased to offer angel ornaments, by Seattle Porcelain Company. Each angel represents love, joy, peace and hope; a lasting symbol of comfort for all who have experienced grief and loss.

This year’s angel is holding a candle. It was designed to celebrate a life that was lost, loved and remembered. Each angel is highlighted with Mother-of-Pearl, kiln fired twice, and individually polished to a fine smooth sheen. They are hand-cast hollow ornaments made of highly translucent porcelain. They glow when a light is placed inside the back of the ornament. They display beautifully on a stand or hanging from a decorative ornament hook. A cream-colored bow and ribbon are hand applied and the angel is packaged in a box.

“Angel with Candle” is available for $25.00 each. Your loved one’s name and 2019 can be printed on a card that is attached to the angel.  To purchase an angel, please download the order form and submit to Hospice & Palliative Care of the Piedmont along with your check.  There is a limited supply of ornaments available.  Please place your order now to guarantee availability.  Thank you for your support!

2019 Hope for the Holidays

As the holidays approach, many of us will gather with family and friends. More often than not, these gatherings will include reminiscences about loved ones, re-telling of funny family stories, and the sharing of traditions honored year after year.

This emphasis on remembrance, so welcomed during joyful times, can be quite difficult for those coping with loss.

For family, friends, and neighbors who are facing grief after the death of a loved one, the holidays may instead be a time filled with pain and sadness. And even for those for whom grief is not as fresh, the holidays may serve as an annual reminder of the loss—not only of that person but of tradition and celebration.

Many people may not be aware of the support hospice professionals offer to members of our community who are struggling with grief during the holiday season. If you or someone you know may be struggling with issues related to loss, I encourage you to attend Hospice & Palliative Care of the Piedmont’s “Hope for the Holidays” Workshop. It is open to the community. Please call our office and let us know that you plan to attend, 227.9393.
