2. Donate new or slightly used auction items to our office located at 2612 E. Northern Lights Blvd.
Proceeds from the event go to support programs at Hospice of Anchorage. Hospice of Anchorage offers people with life-limiting illness the opportunity to live fully. We provide hospice services to people who do not yet qualify for Medicare hospice because either they do not meet the six months or less life expectancy or they are still seeking treatment.
Our support may include: nursing consultations for initial and periodic assessment and education regarding symptom management and end-of-life care; patient and family education about disease progression; assistance with insurance, financial and legal matters, and advance directives (living will, durable power of attorney, and Comfort One); trained volunteer assistance and support; emotional and spiritual support; bereavement and grief support; community resources and referrals; and public and professional education on end-of-life and palliative care issues. All services are provided at no cost.
