Phelps Regional Homecare, a division of Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC), will host its 4th Annual Hospice Butterfly Release Celebration on Saturday, May 19, 2018, from 2:00-4:00 PM at Huffman’s Flowers of the Field, located at 18148 County Road 1000 in St. James, MO.
“This event offers the chance to remember our cherished family and friends,” says Tara Peters, marketing coordinator for Phelps Regional Homecare. Releasing butterflies is a unique way to pay tribute to loved ones because butterflies symbolize hope, new life and transformation.
“The Hospice Butterfly Release Celebration honors the memory of those we love and serves as a celebration of life,” Peters says.
For $30, participants can release a live butterfly and receive a T-shirt. The deadline to reserve a butterfly is Friday, May 4, 2018. Businesses and organizations also can sponsor the event.
In addition to releasing live butterflies, the afternoon will include beverages and light snacks for attendees.
Proceeds from the butterfly release help relieve the financial burden for those in need when facing end-of-life decisions. This event benefits the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation’s Hospice Fund, which assists hospice patients and their families with prescription medications, personal bills, food supplements and other needs.
An extensive team of professionals and volunteers with Phelps Regional Homecare deliver hospice care to patients in this region. Hospice care staff responds to people’s needs for comfort, empowerment and self-directed care while supporting the patients’ families both during patients’ illnesses and after death. The goal of hospice care is to maintain the highest quality of life and dignity to the greatest extent possible for patients.
In addition to hospice, Phelps Regional Homecare offers home health and in-home services. Phelps Regional Homecare serves all of Phelps, Crawford, Maries and Pulaski counties and portions of Dent, Gasconade and Texas counties.
