In Loving Memory
Many of our donations are made through Wills in memory of a loved one, and for the special care they received while at our Hospice.
It’s a special way of remembering, and it helps us carry on caring for others young and old
If you are preparing a Will for the first time, or making major changes to your current Will, please discuss your intentions to include Cumberland County Hospice in your Will with your lawyer.
If you wish to make a change in your current Will, ask your lawyer to prepare a codicil. A codicil is a notation that keeps your existing Will intact and alters or adds items that you wish to change.
