As part of the Vic- tory Puppets of Praise along with other puppeteers Peyton Edwards and Tori Hardy, they competed for the state of West " Virginia in Recorded Puppetry. Traveling with the group were Puppet Coach Theresa Powers, her husband Keith, and their daughter Camden. Tori's mother, Tina, also accompanied the group. In addition to the competi- tion they enjoyed their stay at the Hyatt Regency (near the ocean) and enjoyed shopping, fishing, bowling, and swim- ruing. The group also went to Sea World and took a boat trip to watch the dolphins. The group did not place first in the competition, but got a number one rating for their score. This was Kimberlfs fifth year com- peting, three years in Bible Sword Drill and one year in Bible Memorization. They must compete and win in the district and state competitions to the nationals and represent the state of West Virginia. This was the first time the trio of Kim, Tori and Tins had flown and from all reports, they had a great time.

CALL JEFF SPICKLER i i i ii i i ii Hospice Patient, Families Receive Care and Support One of the unique features of hospice care is the fact that care and support are provided to the family or caregivers of the patient. Hospice recognizes that end-stage illness is a fam- ily affair and everyone related to the patient is impacted by the fact that a loved one is dy- ing. The burden of providing support and care to a sick loved one is tremendous. It's a 24- hour-a-day job-one that is per- formed with many mixed feelings, thoughts and emo- tions. On the one hand the fam- ily is trying to help their loved one see hope and polity in every day. On the other, they are trying to prepare for a time when the patient is no longer here. It is a time of ambiguity, stress and hard work and fami- lies often show signs of fatigue, depression and anger. Not knowing what to expect, won- dering how long this can go on, losing sleep, having responsi- bilities rearranged and sched- ules upset, all take a toll on caregivers. Hospice cannot take away the sadness people feel about the coming death of their loved one. We cannot change the fact that a loved one will die. But hospice can relieve the burden of those providing the care. Nurses visit weekly to manage pain and symptoms, explain the disease process and answer questions. A nurse is on call 24/ 7 to handle emergencies and provide assistance in the home when needed. Social workers help patients and families to consider and set goals. They provide counseling as well as assist with funeral arrange- ments and legal matters. The Spiritual Care Coordinator is available to help families con- sider difficult and confusing spiritual questions-questions that often have no good an- swers. Hospice aides relieve families of some of the practical and personal care needs of the patient. And Hospice volun- teers provide a much-needed break for the caregivers, assist with chores and other of life's demands. All staff listen, en- courage, validate and support hospice families in their desire to care for their loved one at home. When a patient enrolls in hospice care, they are accessing a program of support that wraps around everyone who is close to the patient. After the patient dies, families receive another offer of help through the Hospice Bereavement Pro- gram which provides ongoing bereavement care for more than a year after the patient has died. Most people will say, "I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to be a burden to my family." Hospice is the reassurance that a family of caregivers will also be given care. For information about hospice care for someone you love, call 1-800-345-6538 or 264-0406.
