Community Outreach

Halifax Health - Hospice works with the community to educate and generate awareness about our program, services, and our care. Our outreach programs include education workshops, memorial ceremonies, and memorial celebrations.

Multicultural Outreach Program

At Halifax Health - Hospice, our goal is to ensure that all people have access to our services. We believe that end-of-life decisions should be made by the patient and their loved ones and work diligently to make that process run smoothly.

As a culturally sensitive and diverse organization, we understand that culture shapes choices for life support and care. We will strive to work with you to understand your cultural and religious end-of-life issues.

To appropriately answer such a call, Halifax Health - Hospice has developed a comprehensive program offering hospice education, care and materials appropriate that is tailored to meet the needs of different cultures and offered in multiple languages. We encourage employers, community leaders and physicians to address the issues that people in the community are facing and work with them to eliminate much of the unneeded strain that caring for a loved one can bring.

For more information, please contact us at 386.425.4701. We extend an invitation to all cultural groups, races, ethnicities and religions to contact us to host community events or receive more information.

Ambassador Program

Halifax Health - Hospice is active in Volusia, Flagler, Orange and Osceola counties. We attend a variety of special events in order to get the word out about the services we provide. In order to continue educating our communities about these great hospice services, we are looking for volunteers to assist us by staffing information tables at health fairs and events throughout the community.

Veterans Recognition

Through We Honor Veterans, veterans’ families and community providers learn how to accompany and guide veterans through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.

We Honor Veterans provides educational tools and resources as well as tiered recognition to organizations that demonstrate systematic commitment to improving care for veterans. Partner organizations such as Halifax Health-Hospice assess their ability to serve veterans and, using resources provided as part of the program, integrate best practices for providing end-of-life care to veterans into their organization.

Through this partnership, hospices throughout the country have an opportunity to achieve different levels of participation. The levels are dependent on the agency’s knowledge of veteran issues and its commitment to the care of veterans. The different levels include staff and volunteer education, community education, organization policies and procedures, and hospice-veteran partnerships with local veterans’ service organizations. There are four levels to be achieved, with Level 4 being the highest attainable. Halifax Health - Hospice holds the highest status attainable, Level 4, with the We Honor Veterans program.

For more information on veterans’ programs offered by Halifax Health-Hospice please call 386.425.4701.

Our recognition and pinning ceremonies are for any veteran within the community, not just patients that have our services. We invite participants to partake in this free service, by recording a testimonial that we can have placed at the Smithsonian's National Library, as a testament to their courage for our country.

9-1-1 Memorial

In 2002, a permanent 9-11 memorial was dedicated to the Port Orange Care Center. The memorial is made up of a portion of an I-Beam from the World Trade Center that is mounted in granite from New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, the three states in which the planes crashed. This was a gift from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and was dedicated by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, for Halifax Health - Hospice to use in education and as a memorial.

Location

Halifax Health - Hospice Port Orange Care Center
3800 Woodbriar Trail
Port Orange, Florida 32129

"Whether we are New Yorkers or live in Florida, the tragedy of the World Trade Center unified us and reminded us of both the strength and the goodness of the American People. For all of us who were there on September 11, 2001, I express thanks for the prayers and support that were extended to us. Thanks, too, Halifax Health - Hospice for using this piece of the building as a memorial and a reminder of how precious are the freedoms we share." - Rudy Giuliani
