2018 Hospice Comes to Washington: Transforming Care for Americans
On May 10, Capital Caring hosted the 11th Annual Hospice Comes to Washington reception. The Hospice Comes to Washington reception and networking event kicked-off a month-long initiative honoring older adults, reshaping the dialogue on care and advancing the agenda to better serve all Americans now and for generations that will follow.
During the reception, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) received the Champion of Care Award in recognition of the organization’s work to transform care for all Americans facing advanced illness. Additionally, the Community Impact Award was presented to Dentons, the worlds’ largest law firm, for the company’s efforts in supporting Capital Caring by providing resources to help ensure all patients in need have access to hospice, palliative care, and bereavement support.
