A Soulful Story: Hospice Mitzvah

December 22, 2023

"Feeding the Jewish Soul" is a weekly series offering insights into The Legacy's daily impact on the seniors we serve.

A note from a family to Legacy at Home Hospice

“I’ve been thinking about how it must be strange and difficult for you, in your position with hospice, knowing as you are getting close to someone that you are going to be losing them. I suppose that’s what we all face when we start loving someone, but in your case, you know it will likely be soon. That makes it even more of a mitzvah, what you are doing. I cannot express how grateful we all are to have you with us on this journey. Your presence, compassion, wisdom and love have allowed us to really feel, and understand, this experience in a way that we would not have, could not have, without you. You are a blessing and we love you very much!”

The Legacy at Home has been providing hospice services since 2018. Our hospice team brings decades of experience and a wealth of resources to provide quality, in-home care to the patient and their family. We listen, understand, and walk with you through your journey so that your loved one gets the attention and comfort they need, allowing you to cherish precious moments together. As a Jewish-sponsored organization, we honor our heritage and Jewish traditions. Our accreditation by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice (NIJH) ensures that our staff and volunteers are trained in the full spectrum of Jewish traditions, beliefs, and customs.

Support The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation to create more moments like this. We honor seniors with compassionate, dignified care, guided by Jewish values. With annual contributions exceeding $1 million, we provide charitable care to Dallas-area Jewish seniors. Your support sustains The Legacy Difference, offering Jewish life initiatives, Kosher dining, events, transportation, security, and more. Explore our Blog every Friday for stories showcasing the vibrant lives of seniors at The Legacy Senior Communities.
