 1/11/19 - New hospice venture planned in Dayton area [Dayton Daily News, Ohio]

Jan. 11A new hospice business is aiming to start service in the Dayton area in February.

The service will be a joint venture between United Church Homes and Ohio's Hospice and initially be for people living at United Church Homes' Trinity Community and Trinity Community at Fairwood in Beavercreek and Patriot Ridge Community in Fairborn.

The Medicare-certified hospice program, to be led by executive director Jessica Conger, will be hiring staff but the exact number of staff isn't available, said Ohio's Hospice spokesman Craig Schrolucke.

The goal is to grow the venture to all Ohio United Church Homes senior living communities and in their surrounding areas.

"This partnership will improve well-being for older adults who choose hospice and palliative care when they are seriously ill or approaching end of life," stated Chuck Mooney, senior vice president for United Church Homes. "It's more compassionate to keep residents in a comfortable setting, with care teams they know, and provide additional services as needs change."

Dayton-based Ohio's Hospice is an affiliation of nine nonprofits in 37 counties that have hospice services, palliative care and chronic disease management. Marion-based United Church Homes has senior living services in 14 states and two Native American nations.

The business venture between the two groups also creates a platform for Ohio's Hospice at United Church Homes' planned future expansion into inpatient and home- and community-based hospice services, according to a statement from the organizations.
