Richardson Hospice recipient of $53,000

Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice was one of six organizations invited to present at the ACUITY Town Hall meeting where ACUITY employees cast votes to distribute $250,000 from the ACUITY Charitable Foundation. Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice received $53,000 from the Foundation, which has been a loyal supporter of the Hospice.

Kristie Ahlborg, RN at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice spoke to ACUITY employees and shared how the Hospice team meets the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients and their families. Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice is Sheboygan County’s only community based non-profit hospice and palliative care provider and the only local hospice with a Hospice Center. The Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice offers care anywhere a patient calls home within a sixty mile radius of Sheboygan Falls, be that in a private residence, nursing home, assisted living facility, or hospital. The Hospice Center in Sheboygan Falls offers 24-hour care for patients who are not able to remain in their homes.

“The generosity of ACUITY is impressive and heartwarming”, said Angelia Neumann, Director of Development and Communications, Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice. “I love that the employees get to be involved and hear first-hand what these charities are doing in our community. This is especially valuable for helping people understand hospice care, something most people don’t think about until they have a loved one who needs it.”

Thanks to community support from foundations, businesses, and individuals, the Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice has kept its promise to never turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Over $500,000 in annual donations cover uncompensated care costs for the community.
