The Aurora Zilber Family Hospice and Aurora at Home caregivers have received a $250,000 grant from the Zilber Family Foundation that will be used to support continuing education.
The Aurora Zilber Family Hospice was founded with a $1 million donation from the Zilber family 10 years ago. The grant was presented to the Aurora Health Care Foundation Tuesday during a dinner to celebrate the anniversary of the organization.
Hospice and palliative care seek to create an environment where the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of patients and their families are met.
Through Aurora at Home (formerly the Aurora Visiting Nurse’s Association), care is provided by teams of physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, therapists, chaplains, counselors, and volunteers in a patient’s home, hospital room or at Aurora Zilber Family Hospice.
