Pavestones

The Hospice & Community Care gardens feature pavestones engraved to celebrate family, friends, and loved ones, past and present; to honor those who have touched lives in special ways. You can have a stone engraved and placed in one of our two gardens.

The Sanctuary Garden’s water features and beautifully landscaped seating areas offer opportunity for peaceful contemplation. Woven throughout the garden are hundreds of pavestones that create a lasting monument to loved ones who have influenced others’ lives. Pavestones come in three sizes: 9 X 9, 6 X 9, and 6 X 6.

The Veterans’ Garden honors and memorializes the continued importance Veterans represent in our lives and our hearts. Veterans’ Garden pavestones come in two sizes, or you can choose to have a brick engraved and placed in one of the service branch ribbon paths. The sizes available for the Veterans’ Garden pavestones include: 6 X 9 and 6 X 6.

Named Gifts

The Hospice & Community Care campus and the Wayne T. Patrick Hospice House were made possible through generous donations from local individuals, families, and businesses. For a more permanent legacy, we are pleased to offer a variety of naming opportunities.

Naming offers a sense of personalizing the memorial both for those lost and the surviving loved ones. A range of naming opportunities are available for individuals, families, organizations, and corporations, enabling donors to pay tribute to their relationships with Hospice or to honor and recognize someone special in their lives.

If you are interested in reviewing our current naming opportunities, please call us at 803-329-1500.

The Caring Closet at Hospice & Community Care is a medical loan that lends durable medical equipment to the communities we serve. Medical equipment is available at no charge to those in our community that have short-term needs for items such as wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and more.

Words cannot express my gratitude to your organization for the care we received during my mother’s (Gladys Nunn) recent illness and death. Frankie, Kristie, Danette have been absolutely wonderful. Their warmth, compassion, knowledge, and professionalism far exceeded what was necessary or expected, yet they worked tirelessly to make sure that we had everything we needed. They were not only concerned about Mother, but also about me. These ladies kept me informed about what was happening and what to expect. They answered my questions and addressed my concerns. Lee’s visits meant much to me as well. His soft-spoken prayers and our conversations brought me a sense of inner peace and even a few smiles.
