Charity Hospice is currently
operating as an "in-home" agency
in their homes.
Services are also available to persons residing in
nursing facilities and personal care homes.
Our vision is to ensure that no terminally ill patient will face their “journey” alone or in pain, because of their family’s inability to provide care or the patient’s lack of resources to pay.
Our mission is to create a unique homelike environment where specialized care is provided to meet the holistic needs of terminally ill patients and their families.

(Serving patients in Jefferson, Southeastern Harrison,
and Southern Columbiana counties)
Our goal at Charity Hospice is to open a 12- room residential hospice facility
to serve patients in the Ohio Valley area.
The facility will be a comfortable home-like setting dedicated to caring for
who are unable to remain at home or who do not have caregivers available. With a growing elderly population and a low economy which causes our younger people to relocate, there is a growing void of available caregivers.
Hospice patients living at home will also have access to the facility for short-term care,
for acute pain or symptom management, or for caregiver respite.
Just as with Charity's home hospice services, admission to the residential facility will never be limited by a persons inability to pay.

3 year old David Pawelczyk Medical Fund
Little David Pawelczyk was born to Michael & Ginny in Sept, 2009. In April, 2010 he was diagnosed with a tumor that encompassed 1/4 of his brain. After chemotherapy and radiation, David did well for about a year. In January & February, 2012, David suffered two mini-strokes. It was found that David had developed a disease called Moya Moya, where the blood vessels on the right side of his brain began to collapse. Surgery done at UPMC allowed an artery to be placed on top of his brain allowing a new blood source. However, Moya Moya can spread to the other side of his brain and must be monitored for progression. He will have another scan on April 15th. His brain cancer is called Anaplastic Ependynmoma Grade II/III. There are approximately 200 new cases of his type of cancer diagnosed yearly. There's a 50-60% survival rate for those diagnosed with this cancer. Please keep him in your prayers and please generously support little David! If you did not get to make it to the dinner and would like to contribute to his fund, please contact Bell Chapel United Methodist Church @ 740-283-2239
