Hugh’s passion for hospice is connected to personal experience. In 2018, Hugh’s father became terminally ill. “I am so grateful for the care my father received, as well as the support given to my mother during that difficult time,” said Hugh. “It’s not just caring for the patient. Hospice is a philosophy of care that includes one’s circle of support.”
